90% colonization, some bacteria
    #1065545 - 11/19/02 09:46 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

Hello

I have two jars of Ecuador on brown rice + rye flour (didn't find any vermiculite until a couple of days ago, and these are some 24-25 days old) that both are about 90% colonized. It's been a while since they've grown anything and they have wetspots in the bottom and there's a sweet smell coming from them, so I'm pretty sure they're infected with bacteria.

What I'm wondering is if there's any way to save them even though there's some bacteria in the bottom (it doesn't look so terrible, just wetspots and they haven't turned brown yet). I know the sensible thing to do would be to throw them away, but I have had some bad luck with my jars so far (I don't have a pressure cooker, and as I said, I didn't find vermiculite until a couple of days ago) and have only gotten two Cambodia to fully colonize without infections so that I could case them out of 20-something jars in total. I've never had any mold problems, just bacteria.

I have a friend who also has a lot of bacteria problems and he suggested that if I "clean" the part of the mycel that's close to the bacteria with h2o2 it might work.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Check out hippe3's thread in the advanced cultivation forum. Sounds like it might be for you.

Birth the cake and chop off the bottom third and let grow as a cake
