Colonization time statement
    #960752 - 10/14/02 09:21 PM (14 years, 16 days ago)

Half a dozen jars were inocculated on 9/9.  They have been kept in relatively cool temps (68-72F), so it is no surprise none are 100% yet.  The furthest along is about 75%.  Anyway, I always here people getting impaitent after a week or so, and yesterday, in one jar, the first signs of growth appeared.  A full month and 4 days after inocculation.

The moral to this is mycelium enjoys growing, and it probably will.  Have a lovely day.  :grin:

68-72 is way too cold, you will be waiting forever. Build an incubator.

I understand this, but really, there is no reason to speed it up at this point. Plus I was aware it was going to take 'forever' when the jars were first inocculated started, because of the low temps.

Thanks for the tip tho.

I have built every kind of anything that would speed things up.From a hightech incubator,to a coolmist fruiting chamber.The most significant lesson that i've learned is that nothing grows as fast as i want,and patience is truely the key to success.
