These have nothing to do with the above two posts, and are a completely different batch.
These are some Stargazers that have been going for a little longer than a month. Please let me know if you see any signs of contaminants bacteria or otherwise. I tried to take their photo in the right lighting this time and capture the most active face of the jar.
I have a few jars that seem like they've stopped growing, or are going extremely slowly. Are there any reasons that the mycelium would have just stopped growing? I shook one jar that seemed like it was growing well and gave it a week to recover and upon returning to it, the mycelium seemed as if it was not growing, or reaching out at all. It seemed like it was dead.
Could it have been to dry? I have a small heater in there that turns on in a 4'x4' Gorilla Tent every 30 minutes to keep it around 65-75F. Could the heated air have dried out all the grains?
Was there an invisible contaminant that had incapacitated any mycelial growth? Was it genetics?
Some people's jars are so white and fluffy, it makes me appreciate more what it takes to grow mushrooms.
