near full colonization ... stalling
    #4350581 - 06/29/05 02:46 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I've had a jar colonizing for a couple weeks now.. It seems to have slowed to a deathly crawl.. My other jars which were inoculated 1 week after this one are catching up.

It only has a bit the size of my thumb print left to go... why did it stall so badly??

Its in the TiT with the other jars that are doing great.

any advice?

Flip it over if the uncolonized spot is at bottom.
There might be too much water or co2 at the bottom.

Do that for a day or so and if you haven't already done it, take the tape off of the holes in the lids and loosen them. As long as you have a dry verm top layer, contams won't be a problem. This allows the myc to "breathe" better and speeds colonization.

I do have dry verm ontop.

I will loosen the jars. I was affraid to do so. There were no tape on the top to begin with(I kept them together in a sealed clean container).

There are some water dropplets inside as well... should I turn upside down to let the extra moisture drip out?

the top verm. layer is kinda like a moisture balance. the water will be still in the jar for the mushrooms to feast on.

I advise caution while loosening those lids. I lost a jar to some blue mold punk because I accidentally popped the lid off. OOOPS.

if you have a hepa filter then hold your jar upside down over and force some new clean air into it.

If you are using the PFTek then you'll be fine with loosening the lids 1/2 turn and flipping them, although you should have holes in the lid besides as they are not just for inoculations :wink: Your TiT (TnT) should be kept clean to cut down on contams but your verm layer is really the key barrier here.
