Slow mycelium progressing...?
    #589112 - 03/25/02 06:05 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Alright...first the details:

Strain: Ecuadors
Recieved a syringe from "The Sporeworks" (Very little spores)

Substrate: 2:1:1 ratio in 1/2 pint jars
2/3 cup Vermiculite
1/4 cup BRF
1/4 cup water

Innoculated jars: February 18, 2002 @ 04:48:00 pm

Ok...as stated above I innoculated the jars on Feb. 18. It took seven days for small signs of mycelium growth to appear on all six jars I'm working with. Up until now, March 25, 2002 none of my jars have finished colinization. That's 34 days since the innculation and my jars aren't done yet. I have maybe two of them that are about 90% complete. (The bottom needs to finish). The jars are kept in my closet and the temperature is kept between 70? & 80? F. My question is why is the mycelium feeding off of the substrate at such a slow rate?

Any suggestions, tips, answers would be appreciated! Thanks!

P.S. - I am a slave to a log I keep so that's how I know exact dates and times...very accurate!

Peace!

part of the slow colonization may be due to high CO2 levels, if you have taped them try taking off the tape or maybe loosening the lids on your jars, this should probably help with your colonization. ummmmm, that's all i can think of, it may just take a long time, i've had jars take 36 days but they fruited fine, were just slow i guess, good luck!
