Epic fail first grow couple questions
    #11332383 - 10/27/09 05:44 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

hi, so i started off with 5 cakes following the pf tek, and as it seems, every single one of them smells like nasty old feet and has wet spots lined up with every single inoculation area. I steam sterilized for ninety minutes, inoculated an hour later flaming the tip after every jar, realized i inoculated much too early so inoculated again 24 hours later flaming the tip after every jar until it was red. I left the tin foil covers on the tops of them but like just resting on them not airtight. Im thinking it mightve been in the mixture of water verm brf i mightve added too much water but even that seems impossible because i was following a recipe.
Am i just panicking, does mycelium start off as somekind of darkness or wetness on the substrate or is this very common.
What should i improve on?
(its been about 5 days since the second inoculation)
Peace and love :mushroom2:

steam sterilization is a poor substitute for PCing.  Those spots you see are either contam or wet spots from water that got in during the steaming.  The old feet smell isn't a good sign though

i could be wrong, but it sounds to me like water got into your jars while steaming,  one thing you could try is to put rubber bands or something similar around your foil to keep it on tight while steaming. (remove them when you inoculate and then place your foil loosely on the jars)

depends, breathing in mold is always bad but some is worse than others. it might not be contaminated and just too water logged so just go dump em out in the woods.
