First grow, have a few questions.
    #4521019 - 08/11/05 03:59 AM (12 years, 14 days ago)

I just started a grow 11 days ago, I ordered 4 syringes of B+ from Sporeworks (they are awsome btw)
at first, i had low temps , like 70-75? almost no growrth of mycellum
I build an incubater 3 days ago and some of the jars shot off real good. some of them have big white bright spots, some of them have very small wimpy white spots where i injected (these are the ones that were on the bottom of the pan and possible burnt the vermiculite) oh yea these are BRF jars

well anyways my question is, even though these were low temps at first, they will recover, or should I start a new batch?
also, in my incubater I have about 55% RH, is this too little??
also, will the jars that got really hot and the bottoms of the jars are cracked , with what looks like burnt vermiculite layering the bottom of it, will these jars survive??

Your jars are fine. The lower temp. just slowed the mycelium. Nothing to really recover from. Now your temps. are more optimal, the growth will increase dramatically. :thumbup:

Your humidity is fine.

The jars that got really hot, if the bottoms are cracked and allowed outside air to enter , chances are they will contam :frown: If not cracked, just wait and see what happens. You never know.

Good Luck.

Thanks those are the answers I was hoping to hear!

5 of the 12 jars are cracks like crazy at the bottom,
3 of those 5 have small mycellum growth and strange greyish cloudy shit around them, 2 of the 5 cracked ones have very small myc growth and no signs of anything else
4 of 7 of the uncracked jars seem to be growing very strongly huge blotches that seem to be growing fast, the other 3 have small blotches but bigger then the ones on the cracked jars.

What should I do with the jars with the grey cloudly shit, should I remove them ASAP? do they pose a risk to contaminate the other jars, if they are even contaminted?

im thinking maybe since they are burnt that there was too much heat, and possibly dried out the bottom jars, which is why some of them are very slow compared to some that are boomin, am i way off on that assumption?

Might as well toss the cracked jars. Can't reuse them and sounds like maybe some cob web.

Do some grains then. A WBS/Rye mix works well.
