re-inoculate
    #989600 - 10/24/02 03:01 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I made a batch of six jars a while ago, some are doing great, but in 5 of them, there are spots inoculation points that just aren't colonizing. no big deal, maybe I forgot to shake the syringe before that hole, or whatever. There is one jar though, that still shows zero growth. They were all cooled thoroughly, and I did not burn the spores in the needle....
Anyways, It has been just over 2 weeks now (in incubation chamber) and still nothing, so I am wondering if it would be worth it to re-inoculate. There are no contams growing. I'm just wonering if it would be a bad idea cause i would push any contams on the top layer of vermiculite down into the substrate...

You can if you want, but if its been that long, then there might be an unseen contam. I had six pint jars of Puerto Ricans. All but one germinated and colonized within a month (no incubator, stupid me), one didn't show anything. Then one day, about a month and a half after incubation, it just started growing. I was stoked as all hell. It got about half way colonised, then the green struck. So my guess is it has an unseen, If I were you I would remove that jar, and either toss it and make some new substrate, or leave it on your shelf and see what happens.

As soon as I read that, I took the jar out of the incubator, better to be safe than sorry. When I took the cake out though (it was uncontaminated, or at least, nothing was growing), the cake was very hard, like a rock. Is this normal? It seemed too hard for any mycelium to grow into. My rice was chunkier than regular BRF, since I ground it myself. I figured I would get more nutrients if it was fresh ground. so maybe that did it, or the cake is supposed to be hard, very very hard.

No not at all, either your jars lost all their water, or you got some weird contams going on in your house, I'm guessing your jars dried out. A properly prepared, colonized brf cake should feel like a dense sponge.
