Top half of jar colonizing slowly
    #4008698 - 04/03/05 04:03 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hi, is it normal for a pf jar to colonize on the bottom first and then the top half?

Right now the jars are looking like this:


Sorry about the crappy drawing :tongue:

The white on the bottom is mycelium and has filled in the bottom completely, but the top half is coming along alot slower.

Is this normal?

The jars are from pfjars.com and they are on day 13.  Any comments are welcome.

They're probably fine. Is it stalled growth, or just slow?

Perhaps if you turn the jars upside down for some air exchange that might help.

It seems like the last bit takes a little longer than the first. If you just wait a little bit, the jar will most likely colonize.

Ya, I was wondering if it's ok to turn them upside down. There is alittle water condensation on the inside. It isn't stalled at all, just taking its time going up.

I'll try turning upside down and we'll see what happens.

It sounds pretty normal. When you inject your spore solution, it pools down the sides of the jar. Most of the spores settle and germinate there first.
