do they look ok?
    #1121833 - 12/08/02 12:29 PM (15 years, 11 days ago)

well i tried once to cultivate and failed! the second time i failed again! 100% contaminations!
then i tried for the 3rd time...
all my 15 jars look like this:





do they look ok? if yes, then i have 100% success in colonisation this time :grin: :grin: :grin:
and this means that my mistake was that after boiling tha jars i didn't let them cool in the pot.

thx

Definately looks good, but those are drinking glasses, right? I'd think the likelihood of contaminatio increases greatly when you use those as opposed to 1/2 pint jars with the rubber seal cap. What's beneath the aluminum foil, nothing? You can get the Ball 1/2 pinters on line, as I did, since they can be a little elusive. Just do a web search for 'em, you'll find somewhere to order them if you want. Your current crop does look very well colonized and without a hint of contamination.

Yeah, def better to do it in 1/2 pint jars, you can also get them in sainsburys, unfortunately they come with jam (continental jam) but it is good jam!

I haven?t experienced that at all.
If you do it proper, the success rate can be as good or better as with lids.

I agree,

If the glass's work, keep doing what your doing...As long as you have a cover on the glass's like your foil, they r no more at risk of getting contam'd than jars...Lot's of peeps here who use jars flip the lid upside down anyway so there is no seal...so it would be same either way pretty much....The glass's r lookin great..Good Job Bro!!!

how many times have you failed so far? ive failed like 3 times so far, plus a failure using pint jars with organic white flour. o what shit and a waste of time. but this time hopefully it will work, i sterilized all necessary instruments and all and used the oven tek. and one thing i think really fucked me up before was, is because i put tape over the lid holes. this time i just used foil. plus i rigged up a whole new incubator with a 1/2 jar box with a heating pad underneath with a towel between them and the jars to help insulate and not provide too much direct heat and help keep the heat longer. and i innoculated using mycelium water in 4 jars and spore water in 4. so im letting them all sit. i wonder if i have some secret nebie # of times im supposed to fuck up before i get it right (lol jk) i dont know hopefully it will work, i just wanted to know what you used before and how many times its messed up for you? do you have vermiculite still on the last half inch of your glasses?

danke
