    #4458845 - 07/27/05 04:38 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

its been about 3 weeks now, and my mycelium growth has seemed to stop... its almost finished. i got 10 jars, two which had absolutly no growth, the rest are doing ok, until lately where theres no mmroe growth... atleast none got contaminated.
so does anyone know why the growth has stopped?? and how i can fix it??
all help welcome, thanx!

any comments? i know its late... but theres gotta be someone

ps: i read in other threads that it could be not enough air, so i flipped them over. but to keep them out of the light, i had to put a black towel and jeans ontop, i wonder if that is stopping the air.

I would suggest turning the jars upsidedown and leaving them that way for 2-3days and see if they restart growth. Many times the bottom will be slow to colonize because it is more compact than the top, or build up of co2 which will fall out when upsidedown.(its heavier than o2)

Take care n be safe...

yea, flipped them already, but the bottom of the jars seemed just fine, everything was colonizing equally, its just that it stopped right before finishing. im thinking of just continuing and casing them or something. would that be bad? would they get contaminated?

Most often stalls in healthy seed/grain spawn jars are caused by lack or loss of moisture.

If jars are incubated in very low external Rh situations, they tend to lose a lot of moisture. As the jars internal Rh tries to equalize through the gas exchange filter - to that outside the jar, causing significant moisture loss (from inside the jar).

This can be alleviated by maintaining a high Rh inside spawn jar incubators - during hot - dry - summer months.

If you can - raise the Rh - in the jar incubator (if you use one), have patience & see what they do.

what is your temperature? 84F? air exchange would help growth as well. If you taped youre jars, take the tape off. sometime i fan my jars too. good luck

No, that's not what I'm saying:

An open water bottle - with an small pump driven air-stone bubbler would raise the Rh in an incubator. So would an ultrasonic hummer on a timer.

Point is if Rh is 30 in ambient air & Rh inside a seed/grain jar is 85, due to gas exchange filter on the jar - Rh will lower in the jar, as moisture escapes.

Object is to have Rh in the incubator near that of INSIDE the jar - SO THE JAR CONTENT DOESN'T DRY OUT, any easy way possible.
