What is this in my PF Jar
    #1094459 - 11/28/02 07:43 PM (14 years, 14 days ago)

This is my first try and I have a few concerns about my jars. I know I should be using the neglect tek at this point but I can't resist checking on my jars every few days just to make sure everything is going well. I used a few of the mods to the PF tek such as 1 pint jars and using only one inoculation point instead of four. Other than that I followed it to a T. Anyway.....

This is in a 1 pint PF almost two weeks old. None of the other jars look like it and I wonder should I toss it or wait and see.

This is the same jar a bit further away. There is a bit of moisture on the inside of the jar and the myc is very foggy looking.

This is what the other jars look like. Is this normal myc?

Ok, day after my last post about this and I checked my jars this a.m. This totally took over the jar within 5 days and is even gone up through the dry verm on top.

Should I let the myc try and fight it off or is it too far gone? There is still a small patch of myc on one side but the cake is shrinking. I assume from the mold consuming the H2o.

Damn the contams!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry man, you cant leave the myc to fight, unless you like seeing dead mycelium lol

what you can do, if there is any reason to try it out, is to check out if there is a CLEAN piece of mycelium inside the jar. Took the whole thing out wearing a bloody mask. Put it in a dish. Take care not to mix the whole thing, so as to prevent further contam. You can even spray Dettol or Lysol - not at the healthy speciment you have found of course. Cut the healthy piece out. Put it in a different plate. Pour some H2O2 to it. Leave it alone. Toss everythin else. WHen the H2O2 had stopped bubbling, take the myc piece and put it in another jar. This thing has to be done according to oven tek or in a flow hood or in a glove box.

Good luck in your efforts

What do you think about trying a small casing?

Thanks, I'm gonna try it. Worst case scenario I'll scrap the damn thing. Best case, I'll harvest shroomies I wouldn't otherwise have. At the VERY least generate another print! :smile: I'll keep yall posted as it goes. This casing looks to be much smaller than the other one posted, small bowl about 4" round and 2" deep. I cleaned, crumbled and dunked the myc in H202 (3%) till bubbles stopped. I used a glove box and lots of lysol. I drained the H202 from the myc then spread it over moist verm then covered with layer of dry verm. It's here now      New set up so I don't know how it will go, here is a side view.   2" of moist verm as a bed (as opposed to perlite) I've heard this works. Any concerns I should have?
