Jar colonization question
    #4182390 - 05/16/05 03:34 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

i completed inoculation of my jars 2 weeks ago i used a BRF and vermiculite substrate and took every precoution on following the PF tek, i used the steaming method.

my 10 jars have been sitting in a homeade incubation chamber using a heat pad under a box with the jars inside.

the tempurature is usually from 80-86 degrees and i have not seen any mycelia growth thus far... is there a problem or should i just wait? what is the usual amount of time it takes to see growth??

Strain:B+

Mush... I agree. I think that your jars have gotten a little too hot inside and dried out. I'd crack ONE open and see what's up. Stick your finger in there and see if it's wet or not. Did you see a lot of condensation on the jars the first few days and then nothing now??

Also.. I'd put a towel between the jars and heating pad. This will help dissapate the heat.

Have you got tape over your holes? if you're applying dry heat with a heating pad under the box its very easy for moisture to escape through the innoc holes on the top of the lid; the verm layer does not trap moisture, only keeps contaminants out. your jars may already have dried out completely. for future reference, tape the holes OR purchase a submersible aquarium heater, place it in a covered jug of water and put that in your incubation chamber. i find this far easier than a tub-in-tub setup for me. it also provides gentle heat without the drying effects of a pad.
