god dangit noob needs help
    #4077771 - 04/20/05 05:52 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

i inoculated my jars a little over three weeks ago and there growing very slowly. a few days ago i put em in my attack to act as an incubator to casue its hot up there and its still has barely grown any. So far all u can see is it growing on the top and stoping about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch down. some mycelium has gotten down to the sides and is aslo slowly growing.IS there anything i can do to speed up growth or did i screw up completely somehwere and have to throw em out adn start over. Im a noob and need help!!!!!

What specie/strain of mushroom are you growing?
In what temperatures did you try to grow them?

You say that the mycelium is only on the top?  How did you inoculate these jars?  Did you get the needle over to the side of the jar at each innoc point so the spores would go down the side of the jar?  Just seems weird to me that there's only mycelium on top.  I'd give it another week, and if no significant changes, I'd start over personally.  I'm not saying it won't work out in the end if you don't see changes, but at this point I'd be making a liquid culture.  If you don't see good signs in a week, start a new batch and innoc w/ your LC, and they'll be colonized in like a week... GL bro :stoned:

haha, just to clarify that its attic, not attack. It sounds to me like your jars are not done by the PF Tek. Like NeedMoreSleep said, you inject spores to the sides, so how is it only on the top. I would start a new batch of jars following the PF Tek (following all the directions exactly really works).

make sure the water content is right in your cakes when you noc 'em, and then either let them chill in your closet (assuming the temps in there are above 70?, preferably above 75? imo) if you're worried about drying them out with a heat source.

there are a few teks for nice, easy to make/operate, incubation boxes.. check out the FAQ on top for more info about it.

Is it possible you f|_|cked up the pf substrate formula??? because an unbalanced substrate will give you some slow colonization.

temperature is incredibly important. Get yourself a tub in tub colonizer setup. My colonizing times dramatically reduced when I started using one.

Also, in my experience, with everything in optimal conditions, if the jars do not show any/little signs of growth after 3 weeks, it usually forshadows contamination; ie theres something in there keeping your spores from germinating.
