My girlfriend killed the contam

Every know and then I encounter a bacteria in my rye jars. Always the same creep.
It smells and make the kernels a little slimy.

Well I was learning Spruitje how to cultivate mushrooms. The polyfills she did did not work that well and the jars became contaminated at about the same time the spores germinated. I took the smelly jarss and wanted to dump them in the garden.

Spruitje took them and placed them in a dark closet of about 15 degrees. You know how grils an be attached to some things :wink:

Here is what happened(ing):
The cub mycelium grows very slow but healthy, the contamnation stopt his growth.
The mycelium slowly colonised the jar and also won the battle.
The contamination is not more then a sitting duck.
Wonderfull to see how the mycelium won the battle.
Realy all contamination has gonne from the jars!

Anyone else experienced this contamination elimination????

I have seen it, but in many cases when it seemed so, the battle was won only on the outside at the glass edge an the interior was not so good.
I really hope that's not what happened in your case.  :smile:
