Did I fuck up?
    #11295722 - 10/21/09 11:31 PM (8 years, 3 hours ago)

I have an important contam question: I had a jar that was 3/4 colonized, and checking them just now, I noticed some blue-green mold on a very small section of the uncolonized part.  Worried that the entire cake was about to be fried, I birthed it, and cut the cake in half-- hoping to save half of it.  This is my first grow, and I know contams are bad, but if caught early enough... is this okay?

I would get rid of that cake before the mold spreads to the others anything green is a not a good sign.

blue green?? does it wipe off or is it "in" the cake..

it COULD be bruising.. if it wipes off (check with a q-tip) then its mold and should be tossed

Birthing a contaminated cake and trying to save it is never really worth it.  Toss that shit.  All those spores that your are potentially inhaling when you birth contamination is just not worth it.


At most you have a dollar or two invested in the jar and it's contents.  If you cannot afford to toss it, you should at least run it through the pc before you open it, your health is worth way more than 2 bucks a jar.

See, I kind of already open and cut it.  So The jar itself is ruined?  I can't even bake it?

It was in a small part where it was uncolonized.  I couldn't tell if it just wiped off, I tried not to touch it.

use a q-tip if the q-tip gets green on it, toss it..
if not, removed uncolonized material and dunk it

Lol, I don't think I'm explaining myself very well.  I have already removed the part of the cake in question.  I have cut the cake in half and tossed the part that looked bad.  I have half a cake that seems to be fine.  Should I just toss that half too?

And the jar?  I have rinsed out the jar also...  can I bake it to re-sterilize it?  And re-use it?

Thanks a lot guys.  If I fruit it in a separate chamber--  How can I tell if something's not good once it starts growing?

if you start to notice any green on your cake toss it
blue is usually bruising but green is mold
