My jars
    #622620 - 04/29/02 08:59 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

I've got some jars going and I'm using the quart jar method with brown rice as the substrate. It took a while for the mycelium to establish in the jars ; about 4- 5 weeks. The jars are now fully colonized and full of white mycelium. I am trying to fruit them by putting them in roughly 8 hours of light a day, the rest is darkness. I haven't given them any water or extra humidification since I prepared the substrate. They aren't dry though, they seem relatively moist indside. I usually tip them twice a day to dispell CO2. In the quart jar tek I got off of this site it said that I didn't need to mist them until pinning started. I'm wondering if maybe I should mist the tops of the jars to help fruit. They've been in the fruiting process nearly 3 weeks and no signs of pinning. Any help would be much appreciated.

You're best bet is to just take them out of the jars and construct a simple terrarium in which perlite is dampened for humidification. Fanning 1-4 times a day is fine.

You'll see pins faster using that method

quart jar method, where they sprout out the top of the jar, right? so that means the jar has a shoulder? if so, don't try to get them out unless you want to be thrown head first into the wonderful world of casing. i'd say put the lids back on and stick 'em in the fridge for a day. you can give them more than 8 hours of light, too, just leave them in a room with a window.
