1st time grower question about my jars?????
    #1053184 - 11/14/02 06:28 PM (15 years, 8 days ago)

This is my first time growen and my jars are in the incubation stage.  They just started turning white a couple days ago and are coming along nice and fast.

My question is, I was looking at the jars close up and noticed on all four jars there is a tiny bit of brown fuzz where all the white is coming in, but looks like the white is growen over top of it.  I took the tops off and smelled them and they all smelled nice and grainy, not sour smell.  So is this normall??? :confused:

Brown fuzz? Doesn't sound good, keep an eye on them but don't be taking the lid off a lot to check smell. What strain are you growing? How long did you pressure cook or boil your jars for? Did you add a dry verm layer on top?

Well, it's not really brown fuzz it's hard to describe, might just be some of the BRF or something. I'm growing PC Equador. I boiled for 1 hour and I did put a dry layer on top.

It's hard to tell at the moment. Leave it a couple more days and see how things progress in my opinion.

Like cook said, don't take the lid off, you will increase the chance of inviting contams.

I would guess you're looking at darker pieces of vermiculite. I thought the same thing when I first did pf jars. W/O a picture its hard to tell though. Don't mess with them too much, if they are contammed then there's not much you can do anyway. So just be patient.

Well I looked at my jars again and there is more brown fuzzy stuff. So last night I did up 4 new jars. This is my second attempt. I sterelized every possible thing I could think of this time so hopefully these turn out.

first off, cookd is right. don't open you jard unless you're birthing or throwing them out.
second, if you haven't already, do a search on fractional sterilization, it can dramaticly improve your odds if you don't have a PC.

Sometimes if the mycelum starts to spread fast it becomes thin.You can see the vermiculite through the mycelum.Also if the temp. is high where your incubating sometimes there will be a little tan,brown water damage where the the mycelum started growing.These are just some of my experiences.Hope that helped. :grin:

what ilios said kinda makes sense. There is condinsation in my jars and the brown fuzzy stuff is only where the condinsation is. So could he be right????
