Help Please ?
    #3958013 - 03/23/05 07:24 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey this is my first post so bear with me..
ive looked on this site for much of my info but only just decided to join up,
So anyway ive grown C.mexicana in a few kits before but i thought it about time to try and start from scratch so i did, by following the pf tek for simple minds word for word, and i don?t know if its me just being paranoid but its been a week and there?s been no more growth other than this 1cm radius spot of bright white mycelium the temperature is at the optimum and i don?t know if im just being impatient or there is anyway i can temp it to spread, i apologise in advance for any rambling that may of occurred but im just trying to explain what  i mean.
any help would be great.
thanks  :confused:

One spot in one jar? Of how many? How old were the spores?

Did you shake the syringe well before inoculation?
Were the jars cool before inoculation?
Do the jars have any smell(without lifting the lid)?

Sounds like the syringe wasn't very viable then...

How much suspension did you inoculate per hole and did you inoculate against the glass?

i inoculated about 2ml per hole,
and i did inoculate against the glass and i left it over night to cool would it matter if i didn't PC as i couldn't get one at the time so i steamed it for 1.75hrs to be sure

you need to wait about 5 hours...or till the jars are normal temp...


--------------------
"Six words: drop out, turn on, then come back and tune it in -and then drop out again, and turn on, and tune it back in-it's a rhythm- most of us think God made this universe in nature-subject object-predicate sentences-turn on, tune in, drop out- period, end of paragraph. Turn the page- it's all a rhythm- it's all a beat. You turn on, you find it inside, and then you have to come back (since you can't stay high all the time) and you have to build a better model. But don't get caught - don't get hooked - don't get attracted by the thing you're building, cause... you gotta drop out again. It's a cycle. Turn on, tune in, drop out. Keep it going, keep it going- the nervous system works that way. gotta keep it flowing- keep it flowing.
