Didn't leave room to shake
    #4497241 - 08/05/05 12:20 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Well this time around, i didn't leave enough room in my jars to shake (foolishly) the grains, and man, it is taking FOREVER for them to colonize. Is this somewhat normal for non-shaken jars? It's been 2 and a half weeks and I'd say they are about 50% colonized, some of them less... But, all jars are growing, and a FEW of them are doing real well, 90% with strong rhizo. But for the most part they are 50%. They are quart rye jars innoc'd with LC, too.

Last time I did them, I left room to shake at 30% and they were 100% colonized in about 12 days. Damn my stupidness... but do you think they will be okay? Like they will just take a while? Or is there something else at work?

They should just take a while, you sure theres NO room? Even if theres a half inch you can shake, you just have to shake REALLY hard..I dont leave much room myself to shake, but I can shake like a madman. Shaking speeds things up alot, but next time if theres not enough room to shake, spin the syringe/needle in a circle as you inject and shoot against the sides of the glass, if you spread the solution around to begin with, shaking isnt as big of a deal. A little late now though.

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
