Default How Long To Colonize Mycelium?

Greetings all!

I have innoculated a few jars, and watching them colonize with
mycelium. However, it seems to be happening in slow motion. It's been over
a month already, and some jars look as though nothing at all will
colonize...Hmmm...
Thanx in advance for anyone with helpful advice..

Depends on the temperature. Since it is winter I will hazard a guess
that they are just cold.

Could be other things as well. Too much or too little water in your
media comes to mind.

Mm.. if you do not see mycelia colonizing at each injection point, you
may not have injected enough spore solution in some holes/jars.


> Thanx in advance for anyone with helpful advice..


If the temp is not at least in the mid 70's, try moving them to
someplace a little warmer. If you are already averaging at least mid
70's then there is probably something wrong with your media or the
spores. Or as I suggested you may not have added enough.

What exactly do you see in the jars?

Love and Light

Psilocybin mushrooms possess psychedelic properties. They are commonly known as "magic mushrooms" or "shrooms", and are available in smart shops in many parts of the world, though some countries have outlawed their sale. A number of other mushrooms are eaten for their psychoactive effects, such as fly agaric, which is used for shamanic purposes by tribes in northeast Siberia. They have also been used in the West to potentiate, or increase, religious experiences. Because of their psychoactive properties, some mushrooms have played a role in native medicine, where they have been used to affect mental and physical healing, and to facilitate visionary states. One such ritual is the Velada ceremony. A representative figure of traditional mushroom use is the shaman and curandera (priest-healer) María Sabina. Medicinal mushrooms Currently, many species of mushrooms and fungi utilized as folk medicines for thousands of years are under intense study by ethnobotanists and medical researchers. Maitake, shiitake, and reishi are prominent among those being researched for their potential anti-cancer, anti-viral, and/or immunity-enhancement properties. Psilocybin, originally an extract of certain psychedelic mushrooms, is being studied for its ability to help people suffering from mental disease, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. Minute amounts have been reported to stop cluster and migraine headache

Psilocybin mushrooms (also called psilocybian mushrooms) are fungi that contain the psychedelic substances psilocybin and psilocin, and occasionally other psychoactive tryptamines. There are multiple colloquial terms for psilocybin mushrooms, the most common being magic mushrooms or 'shrooms. And Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principle active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Psilocybe cubensis belongs to the Strophariaceae family of fungi and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis. The mushroom's cap is reddish-cinnamon brown to golden brown in color with white to yellowish stipe and will turn bluish/greenish when bruised.
