No Growth!!
    #547891 - 02/11/02 02:52 PM (16 years, 7 months ago)

I am a first time grower and am using PF tek, I inoculated my jars about 10 days ago and there has been no growth whatsoever. I was very catious while
sterilizing and am pretty sure thats not the problem, because i dont even have any contaimination. as you could imagine this is very harmfull to my confidence in growing scince i cant even grow mold or bacteria let alone rooms. now dont mis interpret this as a lack of knowlage on the subject, I've read everything i could. now my only guess is my substrate is to dry, i was hoping someone could describe the best of thier ability the reqired constincy of a good substrate?? i live about 1 mile elavation and theres practicly no humidity here, would this affect anything?? it might also be my rice of vermaculite, the vermaculite is relatively the size of bee bee's, and the rice is organic brown(occasionally green) rice bought from a super market. any help here would be much apperciated... thanks, a frustrated begginer

Sounds like you didn't fuck up. I'd be suspicious of your inoculate.

I myself have no real Clue I am very knowlageable about the subject but just in reading and not in actual experience, I am now growing my first PF cake and 3 out of 5 jars are fully colonized after 11 days and the other 2 are 50% colonized. Im growning Equador strain PC.

We need more information to help you.

What are you using for a incubator ?
What temps are you keeping your jars at ?
What was the amount of everything in your substrate?
How much spores did you put into the substrate ?

Answer these questions and we will be able to help you more.

patience is the key... waiting for mycellium to grow is hard but when things get going... it's pretty fast.
