Should I start panicking yet? 13 days barely any fuzz.....
    #4748390 - 10/03/05 09:25 AM (12 years, 19 days ago)

I'm a first time grower, and I inoculated 13 days ago (Sept 20th) with B+ strain. One jar has about 25% of the jar covered in the white fuzz. Another jar has a tiny little white spot, but thats it, the other 4 jars have nothing. My question is, am I panicking too early? Is this normal? The temps I am incubating at probably has something to do with it (in 70-75 degrees), and I read that the temp could affect how long this will take, but should it be taking this long? Any feedback is appreciated... thanks......

yeah your temp is going to slow things down, 82-85 would be great if you can do it.
are these jars you have made yourself? if so what is the ratios of the mix you used?
:peace:

nope, they're from mike o logical. i put a heavy blanket over the cardboard box i have my terrarium in. would wrapping the box in an electric blanket help? The box is in my basement and the temp down there ranges from 68-75.

yeah, the first time i did pf jars they took weeks for the first sign of myc growth, it was only about 10 degress out but 10 degress makes a huge difference.

Get the temps to round 85F, 75F is what you want for fruiting not incubation.

do what is takes to get the temp up, well without creating a fire hazard. you'll be suprised at how fast they take off with the warmer temps.

best of luck
:peace:

you may want to try something else besides a heating blanket. I have read some post on here where people used heating blankets and it made things to hot.

I would most defiantly recommend on making a incubator.
