Was it disinfected pretty well where you store them to incubate? Is the heating pad necessary, or could the room just be kept warm? Did you use a pressure cooker, or just use a steamer (as i do)? I'm a newbie too, and things look pretty good ingeneral, although a couple have a few small black spots (which i posted about as well).

MAIA, should you sterlize the needle in between each innoculation for every hole in the lid? I do, but was wondering if it was necessary.

flame sterlize between each jar,,,each hole would for one be very time consuming and not nessesary,,, if one injection hole contams from the needle, cleaning it after that wont help that jar,,but if you sterlize between jars you can stop the spread.

When you say you sterilized the jars for one hour, did you use a pressure cooker?
