Noob questions
« on: October 03, 2011, 12:22:33 AM »

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and to growing mushrooms. I recently started my first batch of B+ using the PF method. I have two questions.
1. Is micro-supply a reputable spore supplier?
2. It's been two weeks since I inoculated 12 jars, and only two jars have colonized so far. I put 1/4cc to 1/2cc in each hole. The jars are in a closed plastic container, and the temperature has been between 75 and 85 degrees the whole time. What is going on with the other jars? am I missing something here?

Any help is appreciated.

Did you let air into you jars?

Air can speed things up. Open one injection hole. Maybe your substrate wasn't good enoufg for the myc to grow.
