A message to all the newb growers out there.
    #4458818 - 07/27/05 04:24 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Take the advice from everyone and their dog in the forums. Patience. Checking your jars or whatever every hour is not going to make them grow any faster! Learn patience.

Unfortunately I had to learn the hard way. All but 1 of my initial run jars were contamed with green mold. I'm pretty sure it was because I was always handling them. Checking them every few hours.

Well lesson learned. The new batch I have I will not even look at for a week. Then I will check every other day for contams. I hope I get atleast one jar out of the 24 I did that isnt contamed.

Dont make the same mistake I made. Not to be sacrileges but my jars died for your sins! lol dont let the same shit happen to you. Starting over and over with nothing to show for it is very frustrating.

Good luck to everyone!

Peace.

I look at mine every couple of hours or so and I'm in day 5 with several jars well on their way to a complete colonization...I guess if you observe you just have to be careful. During each inspection I check the incubator temp and look for signs of mold as well. As long as you don't disturb the dry verm layer you should be gold.

I look at mine constantly and have not had a single contam yet, touch wood. Im guessin something else in your preperation procedure was not too sterile.
