How often do you check your jars?
    #3985042 - 03/29/05 02:03 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I hear there is an incubator around here with 16 pf jars in it that were knocked up two days ago. I was wondering how often you should check the jars for growth/contamination. I havnt checked them at all yet. Do you check every single jar for contams when you do check them?

My second question is for those of you who use an aquarium heater with an adjustable heat setting, what do you set it to? Mine is set to 82 but the water doesnt feel very warm to me at all. Do you set it above the range you want your incubator to be in to make up for heat loss?

82 should be fine. Put a thermometer in the tub if you wana make sure its at the right temp. No need to check everyday i think it even might slow down the colonization if you check as much as a friend of mine did (twice a day). You probly wont see anything anyways until 4-5 days.

I check my jars daily. Mostly because I can't keep my eyes off of them. :blush:

I'm not that experienced...but I say...daily.

your body temp is 98 degrees the water is 82 it will feel cool when you touch it, I have found checking jars once a week is good everyday slows growth.

I've never noticed any slow down in growth from checking daily.

Impatience slows growth :tongue: :grin:

Thanks for the replies. So do you guys actually pull out every jar and examine it for contams? Im paranoid about getting a contam so im trying to handle the jars as little as possible.

I also check mine daily but only cause I can't stand not to!
It's not necessary to check them everyday tho, some people rarely check on them.

This is my first grow so im trying to be careful and not mess anything up. I PC'd at 15psi for 45 minutes and I used a shitload of lysol and oust all over the place before I inoculated. I didnt know that it took a week to see mycelium though. If that is the case I will probably wait a few more days before I open the incubator.

The light effects the growth rate in my opinion I know a lot of growers check everyday but I made 2 batches one I checked once and the others I checked daily the jars that stayed in the dark colonized In 8 days the others took 14 days :smile: I know theres a controversy here but this is my opinion and what I have found that works best

From my experience, if you use a vermiculite layer on top of your cake, you can handle the damn jar all you want without worrying about contams.

my friend checked half his jars twice a day(morning and night) The other half were check every 5 days. The first half took 5 weeks to colonize the second took 3 1/2. Same substrate same inoculation syringe same everything just one was checked more.

Take that for what it is. Its not proof but a handy observation.

Known Fact - Light induces pinning and tells mycelium to begin fruiting, Mycelium barely colonizes when Fruiting, :rolleyes: :thumbup:
