Help please! Contamination???
    #11182514 - 10/04/09 09:06 PM (8 years, 20 days ago)

I took some pics from a jar that looks contaminated, hope u guys can give me a light! I quickly opened the lid just to smell it, and it smells really good! I really don't wanna throw this cake away, but if there's no salvation, i was thinking about opening it and using a scalpel, take a slice from that rizomorphic section on the bottom of the jar, and transfer it to agar. What do u think??

That looks like some sort of sediment on the outside of the jar.

If you have agar, why in the hell aren't you messing around with grain?

wait for another week just to make sure.. If it gets worse, toss it out and try again. Sometimes its 100% sucess rate, sometimes not.

Nope!  That's contamination.  That picture of the bottom of the jar was the one that made it certain.  That will consume the rest of the uncolonized area of the jar within the next day or two.  If you have agar and work well with it, then what the hell.... take a shot.  What's the worse that can happen.....

For those of you who chose.."Weak Mycelium".  Consider this.... The growth is nowhere close to the original Inoculation points.  The Healthy mycelium is right at the proper inoculation points.

I don't know from where this fucking intruder came from... Jars were PC for over an hour. They went straight to glovebox when the pc was opened. All sterile procedures followed flawlessly. I,m mad.

Sadly, not enough people frequent that forum and they don't get their responses in a timely fashion.  This could change if those of us with contamination experience went there FIRST when they logged on to the shroomery.  (hint,hint):wink:
