Slowed Mycelium Growth???
    #352151 - 06/30/01 10:36 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I have PF tek jars colonizing right now - they colonized really quickly and agressively the last 2 weeks, now the growth (which is at about 90%) just seems to have slowed down. Is that normal? There are no signs of contamination. Should I turn the jars upside down? (the bottom of the jar is where the mycelium hasn't grown yet) Should I give the jars some light? Or should I just be patient? Please help me out guys - Thanks!

This is the American Dream in action, man!

Tape off, invert jars and be patient. That last 10% can be a bitch.

Defiantely take the tape off (if you used tape). I wouldn't actually invert the jars...just turn them upside-down, hit the top so they fall down, then turn right-side up. That way oxygen gets to the bottom.

...or too little moisture, if your holes are open and the substrate has become too dry.
