Water born contams
    #1384687 - 03/17/03 04:07 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Another prophecy from a bowl of cereal.

"I am a little stressed as to the humidity of my incubator (prior post) and today when I checked I noticed that water is beading over the tops of the jars. Would this drastically increase chance on contams? I wiped them today with what I thought were sterile cotton balls, but they turned out that there was a large puncture in the bag they were in. I feel as though I'm a little paranoid but with all the planning that has gone into this I've been concerned of losing my jars to contams." :confused:

Did the water enter the jars? This is likely "no" if you have a tin foil covering over the jar.
If you don't want to worry about contams entering your jars, turn them over. They colonize faster in SWIME and there is little likely hood of contams entering your substrate through water droplets (water doesn't flow up, didn't ya know?)

Well, I inverted the jars. Isn't the speed of colonization effected by the lack of oxygen, though? This is, unless, you mean to put the on a grate upside down, which would probably make more sense.
