These three of my 4 jars ha e about 60-70% colonization it seems. That said starting to get quite puffy on the top.

Is there such a thing as waiting to long?

Do I need to wait for 100% colonization for best results?

Thanks!

You want 100% colonization, and preferably an extra week as well.

If you birth un-colonized substrate there is a high chance that you will end up w/ contamination.

Much appreciated. Like many parts of this hobby it’s just going to require patience on my part.

I already shook these twice and they seem to have even distribution so should just be a waiting game.

Thanks again!

If you shook them and they're starting to grow back it will not take long to fill in. Just let them sit after shaking.

Here's a pic of my next jar to spawn. Shook it a week ago?
