Can you expand on your process ? 

Are you using jars for cakes or spawn ? 

Are you using a PC? Where’d you get the spores ? How’s your sterile technique ?

Pf tek...no pc but steamed for 2 hours...covered holes wit micropore tape... used very sterile inoculation techniques but I didn't use a still air box I used the oven on 400 with the rack pulled out... and I got the liquid Spore cultures from nonsponsorvendor.com

Please do not post about non sponsor vendors

please do not ask people where they got their spores from

shroomology does not want to be associated with these vendors or make it seem like we may be vouching for them if we do not know them, and we are not associated with any transaction with any separate entity. we also will not host or promote information about these vendors negative or positive.

This is the policy of the website. Please read all rules before posting.

@Mycohopeful I can tell you right now your issues are because you got your spores from an unprofessional vendor. I saw what you posted and that company is crap. Buy cheap, buy twice.

Get new spores and start again with a good tutorial like the one on pf tek written by @mushmouth we have here in the drop down menu.

My bad MZ, I was tying to dance around that but I’ve apparently got two left feet . I’ll be reviewing policies as well .

Well I told him about the colonization and told him and they agreed to replace the order half price so I went ahead and did it so I'm just hoping it's a lot more successful this time

      I don’t think you’ll be able to post anything without me reading it in Bill’s voice .

      3-23 The 2 remaining bags that had an extra quart of water puffed and tammed. This raises the question why?  While the 2 bags with 1/2 qt extra we're PCed with the other 3, they are fine at this point. I don't understand why. I would understand if the 3 we're soup(oversaturated) but having all 3 tam when they were PCed with the other 2 that are fine makes no sense. Something to mull over. Next set of bags will be done with MZ's soak and simmer method on Tuesday. At that time I will also take a peek at the first 4 bags that we're nocced 2 weeks ago with GT and LM. Yes I am aware that those species(?) use different grow teks. The LM I am just spawning for G2G to build up until I have enough for a decent crop once transferred to straw based sub.

      Trashed the 6 jars.    Decided to not wait the extra day and looked at the other 15 jars.  The 6 PE showed no signs of growth.   The 3 A+ showed some minor white but not enough to tell if it's mycelium starting or something else.   3 of the Jalisco appear to have the same signs of growth.   I marked the lids of those that showed growth and put them back into incubation.   At least maybe the rye wasn't treated with an anti-fungal?  Very slow growth at best compared to the myc in cakes at 14 days.  Maybe not enough surface moisture on the outside of the grain at the time of inoculation?  It's 79F in the closet but maybe not that warm in the box?   Inserted the digital thermometer probe into the box to see if there is any difference and put them back into the warm closet.   Now I'm thinking maybe the Tamp just didn't have enough time and I blew it by trashing them.  Glad I got back up plan C going starting tomorrow.   At least right now I have a positive sign of growth on 3 A+ and 3 Jalisco with hopes of the others showing something next week when I check again.   Increasing the closet temp to see if that helps.
