Stalled Jars
    #4015151 - 04/05/05 12:46 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

My 12 ? pint PF tek jars have been colonizing for 29 days. After around 3 weeks growth slowed down considerably. I have turned the jars upside down to increase growth to no avail.

- 75?F - 85?F
- RH low because of winter
- 4 holes in the lids of each jar
- No tape
- Ecuadorian

The mycelium was moving pretty fast until the 3 week. The jars were approx. 85% colonized by day 21, and 8 days later they're only approx. 90% (and the mycelium growth is still decelerating). I know the jars have not dried out because there's condensation on the inside of the glass.

Any suggestions? Should I just wait it out? At this rate of deceleration, it will take at least another month. I'm assuming there must be a faster way to increase the rate of growth to its original speed.


Also, 3 of the 12 jars are fully colonized. How long can they stay in the jars?

Thanks.

tried shaking them hard, so that the mycelium crumbles and mixes with the none colonised?

Case the parts of the jar that are colonized. Throw the rest away. Throw some peat moss 50 percent vermiculate 50 percent on top 1/4 an inch. Verm and Peat moss are at home depot or lowes. If your doing really low scale shit just use some Verm. 29 days is crazy for a half a pint.

Your temperature should be more stable. What are you using for an incubator? I suggest making a TiT if you don't have one. Here is a link to Magash's Tub in tub post http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...rue#Post2921939 And here is a picture of my TiT which is always wrapped in a king sized comforter, except for in the picture.

Good luck with your studies.
