I know Im being too impatient but my mycelium ripped through the pf jar and in under 12 days they were 60% colonized.
Now they have only grown a little. I know there is ample water in the jars but they are not too wet (I have slight condensation
the jars but the water does not drip or pool). The FAQ says that complete colonization can take up to 5 weeks so I know I need
to be more patient. But is slow growing normal as the last 30% is colonized? This is my first time doing this with zero contams, so
Im worried that something bad is going to happen with my little experiment. Thanks in advance

yes ....slowing of mycelium growth will occur because of the C02 build up.....can anyone help me out here?

I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

I've read other posts on here about people in your same situation. Flipping the jars upside down really seems to help jars finish colonizing by replacing the co2 buildup and replacing it with fresh o2.......that and patience......lots and lots of patience.
