Worried about the rate of mycelium growth
    #6249601 - 11/05/06 11:35 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

It's now 7 days since I incubated my 5 BRF/verm jars. So far 3 of them have only 2 small spots on myc on them, one seems to be doing quite well and the last one has no spots on it at all.

It all seems to be kicking off much slower than I anticipated. They are kept in the dark with the lids loose and the temps vary between 78-86F. I think they may be too dry but I'm not sure how I would work this out or what I could do about it if they were. Any advice?

What makes you think they're dry? It can take up to 2 weeks for full germination. Do you have tape over you holes? If so tkae it off.

The rate of myc growth makes me think they are dry. The lids are loose and the tape was kept off after inoculation. I know it takes a while for myc to grow and colonize but after 7 days incubation and only 2 small spots on 3/5 jars and 1 jar where nothing has happened at all I'm starting to get worried :frown:

that would be a little disappointing....but I have read that a minimum of two weeks should pass before you throw in the towel. I know its a bitch waiting....but that is key.......let it do its thing.

I left a GT jar in my incubator for a month, nothing. Then, insanely fast growth. Never understood that.
