Could I be contaminating my jars?
    #11170821 - 10/02/09 06:33 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

Hey first post here. My first batch of jars are innoculating at the moment in my basement. I was wondering, when I pick up the jars to see the growth every so often, could I be contaminating the process by not wearing gloves?

could be...but your not. contams can't travel through the glass and the layer of dry verm will keep most contams out. you'll be fine. don't wipe your ass or something then go play with your jars, but just pickin em up is not a problem

not that bad. my first grow i had 0% success. gave myco up for awhile. so 10/12 is pretty good. i haven't lost a jar to contams in years now. so you'll get it down pretty soon
