I know this is a "depends on the environment" question, but I have two 1/2 pint jars which are about 6 weeks into puffy growth. They have just been sitting in 70 degree temps for that period of time. I have to go on the road for about 4 months of work. Is there any way, I can slow that growth or even let it sit somewhere for 4 months until I can get into a growing situation?

but if you have no choice then it's the only one you've got.
Let us know how that pans out for you :)

honey will color the mycellia so that's not a big concern itself.
how much honey, how much water ?
how long cooked ?
it's just day 4 so i'd say to see a small cloud or two is about
as good as you can reasonably expect.

obviously something's growing in there,
you'll have to test it to determine exactly what...

The honey was knocked up with multi spore PR and the vanilla has pf classic.
Thanks to hip and his thread on basic's of lc in the vaults.
I simmered the jars on the stove. Then knocked up with one cc.
The jars were kept around 85 degrees For two weeks.
I know from other posts and pic's i did not get a lot of growth, But enough to use. I also shot them with one cc of peroxide when i though they were done . Just incase ! IMHO,better safe then sorry !
Now the question.
The mycil in the vanilla has a brown hue to it. Is this normal ? since the vanilla is dark ?
Honey water is clear and the mycil is also.
I know the pic's aren't that great , but does this look ok ? :eusa_pray
I put them in the fridge and plan to see if they will work soon.
Any and all input will be appreciable.

You can always shoot up 2 or 3 test jars to make certain. If every inoculation site contaminates, your LC may be bad.
