I had this happen with a bacterial contamination when I was trying to use DRF. Give it some fresh air and some time and see if anything happens.

I heard you're not supposed to smell jars because you could inhale a mold spore, which can get you sick. I was reading a post where a kid inhaled a mold spore from smelling an infected jar and he had a bad reaction and almost died....

If u are serious about this hobby, I sugjest getting a industrial resporator mask. Thicker than yer normal face mask. Should keep out bad stuff from yer lungs. To be extra safe, I hit it w/ a spray of %91 alchohal and let it dry before use. Have to make sure its dry, %91 is about as strong as either; when it is that close to yer face anyway. No one like to pass out in the middle of mussie work.

I took one for the team, like moe suggested. No funky smells =) just a buncha mush matter, and the cake actually felt really dry. The vermi+brf where there was no colonization was still stuck firmly together. And felt dry.

I think it may have stalled because of heat, or possibly lack of water? my thermo said 82 in my incubator, though. But that's towards the middle, and they are at the bottom. So maybe they got a little warm and stalled. It's been pretty hot here lately, too.

>>It's been almost 2 weeks since I innoculated.<<

Hmmmm... it's probably going to take a little longer than 2 weeks to colonize completely. Colonization will slow down at some point during incubation, but that doesn't mean it's dead. You look to have some nice rhizos in the one pic.

Are you using a vermiculite seal? If so, do you still have tape over the holes in the top? If so, remove it.

Usually people say that if you don't see strong growth within two weeks you ought to scrap the jar. Yours looks to be pretty strong (from what I can see), so I'd give it a couple more weeks.

Remember: Impatience kills more mycelium than inexperience.

No, no tape there still. Yeah, the mycellum looks nice and rhizo.. really rhizo, in fact. It's just seemed to stall, for no apparent reason. I guess i'll give it a week and see how it goes.

In reply to:

This is the best thing to do... wait......... wait.......... then wait a bit longer.

If its not after finished after waiting, go to plan B


Good luck

what temperature are you incubating at? I think that might be the biggest question of all...and is there growth from all innoculation points? I get full colonization from a multispore in about 2 weeks but my temps around right around 86 degrees F. If you're not incubating I would suggest to do so.

my cousins pet turkey's jars usually take more than 2 weeks to colonize. mycelium actually grows at an exponential rate as long as there is unlimited space. What this basically causes, in terms of what you can see, a period of fast growth until the jar hits the half way point at which point growth speed reduces exponentially with space. The last couple spots on the jar to colonize always takes a while from what i have seen. Just be patient.

i also had the same problem...but IMO it also depends on how old that saringe was made. The fresher
and sooner it was made from prints the better. It takes 2 weeks for GERMINATION not complete colonization.
U may just have a slow strain...I wouldnt be surprised if it took 4-5 weeks to get those jarz colonized. Around week 3 they should pick up
but if too much water did get in, u would be able to see . I started off wit 12 jarz and too much water boiled
into them...now only 6 are left, but they are also questionable and i wouldnt be surprised if they too end up in the CAN =[
Give it another week Try moving the jarz to different places of ur incubator and rotating them around .

A few of my cakes also Look EXACTLY like the pictures. They have been sitting in the incubator for well over 4 weeks. Any suggestions that I can do? No sign of any bacteria. Can I just take the colonized part and crumble those and case them?

that's what I did a couple days ago, and so far the casing looks fine. Don't take my word for it though.. hehe. I completely cut out (generously) the un-colonized parts. And only on 2 jars, since I had already opened one to check it out.

The number one cause of stalled jars is dry substrate.
