I think our jars are looking quite nice, I cant wait to see how these turn out for you! I still remember how I was when I first began. I would also check things about 100 times a day. Eventually, after the "OMFG is this going to work" feeling wares off and you begin to realize that you know what your doing, you begin to just let them go.

Do not try and save a contiminated project, your will more likely spread the spores everywhere. Removing it all from the substrate would be imposible.

If a contam is in the substrate, it will be able to grow much more quickly than mycelium, also note that many mould mycelium is white until it sporolates.

notice how high up in the jars your growth is-
right up into the very top layer
but little if any at the bottom of the jar.
that's not so good,
better to have the reverse situation,
don't want that top layer getting wet
and it takes a long time to finish the bottom
so when one inoculates
one should strive to ensure that some of
the inoculant trickles all the way down to the very bottom.


HIPPIE DO YOU THINK IF I FLIP THE JARS THE MYCELIUM WILL GROW UP TO THE BOTTOM of the jar (srry bout the caps lock)

flipping can help finish the very bottom
but it won't speed up growth any
plus you must take care when flipping
not to disturb the dry verm barrier under the lid-
if the verm shifts it can let unsterile air inside,
contaminating the uncolonized areas.

Looks great, man. You're doing good. When I use tall jars (very rarely) I have the same problem with the myc getting to the bottom. I do, like you said, flip them over. I find that the myc moves faster if, when you flip them over, to get the bottom (now top) away from the glass. That's just my opinion and it works for me.

I've always wanted to do Tak. I got a syringe once but the project was tossed out by the 'room raider', if you know what i'm saying. Anyways, good luck and remember to post plenty of pics when the grow is finish :hippie:


sorry brah i have no idea what your saying lol
but i was always interested in this strain as well.

as for GT i liked the potency..for some reason it never dropped alot or any spores at all. plus it had alot of aborts. although maybe it was a bad print..
i got another one from a different grower and im thinking
of trying it again

Just wanted to ask a question about the pins on the cobweb cakes....first of all they have doubled in size and seem to be growing pretty healthy. I'm not sure if it helped but i formed a little pool of peroxide water on top of the cake which seemed to show signs of improvement after only a short period of time by improvement I mean the mycelium looked whiter and the cobwebs seemed to disappear now for the question do you think when these pins are full grown they will be safe for research. :rasta:

do you think when these pins are full grown they will be safe for research. :rasta:



hmmm.. they look good to me.. i personally would eat them.

looks like you have plenty of knots all over the place which is good news. good rizo growth too. i don't see any problems. if you have cobweb, looks like the peroxide has it under control.

looks like they should be ready for new year's.
