Can someone please confirm these possible contaminations? W/Pics (Of course)
    #11209713 - 10/08/09 08:00 PM (8 years, 16 days ago)

im a noob, but i gotta post this because i dont want to fuck everything up.

my main problem is trying to figure out if these first 2 are cobweb mold or not. as for the second set of pictures, im damn near sure they're contaminated with cobweb mold. the green mold popped up in 2 or 3 of my 1 pint jars, and that was simple to pick out. cobweb is a bit tricky, hence my post. id like those who know their shit to help me out before i fuck up an entire 80+ jar grow.



these definitely look fucked:



IDK wtf is going on here, besides the obvious cobweb mold.

I don't see anything wrong with them?

I mean, you DO realize you are growing fungus, right?

true. it just looks like different kind of "growth" in parts of the jars.

should i just let em go and see what happens? a contaminated jar (with micropore tape on the holes) wont contaminate other jars next to them, will they?

Looks like heavily rhzimorphic fungus to me.

If the jars are taped and verm'd properly, they won't infect each other. If you didn't follow proper syringe procedure (flaming between at least every jar, preferably every injection), then it could've contam'd the whole lot.

i sterilized the syringe between every one of those first 10 jars. but the vermiculite layer got fucked up and it isnt fully packed so the top moves around. that could be it. i made sure not to make that mistake with the rest of the jars.

is rhizomorphic fungus bad? ive heard that before but cant remember if that just means the regular mycelium growth or something bad? sorry, stupid question but id be great to get that answered. i think im just going to let those jars go and see what happens :shrug:

I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with them.  Except for maybe number six.

you talking about those last 2, right? thats the same jar, different sides.

i can see how the others might actually be ok, but that last jar sure looks pretty fucked. discoloration in a large part of the substrate. that one is getting tossed. im going to look through them again and spray some lysol in there.

I would try to keep chemicals as far as possible from the incubator/colonizing jars, but that's just me.  It's better to just leave them alone and see how it goes, there's not much you can do now.

I agree, if I were you I'd sit on them for another week or two. If you're worried they're contaminated because they don't look like your other jars, quaranteen them in a tupperware container and keep a vigilant eye on them.

Personally I think you're fine. It's possible your ratio of moisture to verm/flour is askew.
