stalled jars question
    #8811419 - 08/22/08 03:57 PM (10 years, 5 months ago)

I have 12 half-pint jars, all of which have stalled mycelial growth, which i attribute to the substrate drying out. im not sure why they dried out, when i pced the jars, the grain had optimum moisture and i kept the jars in a 75-80 degree environment after inoculation. its been 2 and a half weeks since then, and only do i see sparse amounts of rhizomorphs.
So, my question is, would it be wise to add the mycelium from the stalled jars into newly pced jars?

No.  If they stall, there's always a reason, and dry jars tend to colonize faster than wet jars, so that's not your problem.  I suspect bacteria contamination or lack of gas exchange.
