Unused PF tek jar question
    #4066497 - 04/17/05 10:04 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I'll start off by saying that I have yet to grow but am trying to start. I ordered some spores a little while back and decided to make the jars while I waited for them to arrive. Unfortunately it took much longer than expected to receive the spores and I had the premade jars sitting in my closet for about a month (I made them only a day or 2 after ordering). The jars don't have any mold growing in them and they appear to be in the same condition as when I first made them. My question is, is it safe to inoculate these jars 1 month after initially making them or should I just trash them and start over?

the water levels have most likely changed and i would reccomend starting over. this hobby requires precision, and any shortcuts you take really come back to you in the end. Welcome to the shroomery, everyone's here to help. :-)

Welcome to the Shroomery! I'm a newbie also (on 2nd flush of 1st batch). The water content may have changed. Did you tape the holes? If so you might be ok, but I would PC them none the less. You could take the lids off, remove the dry layer off verm and check the subtrate with your finger for how moist it is. If you didn't tape the holes then you might be better off just redoing them as jamsandwich suggests. Good luck and post pics when you finally get some fruit!

Thanks for the help...my real concern was the water level also, I think I'm going to start with fresh jars. As a follow-up, does the fact that no mold grew in the jars over this time say anything about the sterility of them, as in, is this a good sign that I made them right?

I'd assume so. I think in 1 month if there was anything in there it would have shown it's ugly face by now. Congrats on being sterile. Just out of curiosity, who did you get your spores through that they would take a month to get to you?
