How Often To Check
    #3767143 - 02/11/05 04:59 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

While my jars are sitting in the dark and doing nicely so far, I haev a question. I know when to take them out and put them into the growing chamber, but how often shoudl I check to see how they are doing. I mean, they should stay in total darkness, but if they get like 2 minutes of light every 5 days or so as I cehck on how they are doing will that be OK?

Most of the sites I have seen say that you need 12 hours of light to initiate a good pinning in the beginning, followed by 6 hour light cycle after that for growth orientation (To make them grow up.)

I would imagine that it would take hours of light to completely retard growth, but I don't actually know. I check mine every day, because I have more than one batch growing at once, several are days behind, and I reorder them by how fast they are growing, so I know that I have to make 3 more, or 5 more, or 6 more jars. If they are growing slow, I will make less that week, if they are growing fast, I will make more. This way I always have about 4-5 pinning at once.

Touch the jars as little as possible, wipe the outsides of the jars down with an alcohol-dampened paper-towel every few days, and don't breath inside your incubation chamber. Then you can check them all you want, I imagine. (If you must check them daily!) I may be adding a plexi-glass window so I can view them without exposing them to my elements, but contamination hasn't been an issue unless I purposely contaminate them. (Don't ask.)

Light wont really retard growth or anything, checking may introduce contams...either things arent really an issue. You can check every hour without a problem, other then your own personal issues of having to check your jars every single hour :smile:

Just be clean and only look at them when you need to and you'll be fine. The less you look at them, the quicker they'll seem to grow..

They have been known to grow on a closet shelf, at 70F, with a human opening the closet door every 2 hours and looking at them for 2 weeks straight. ;P
