Odd contamination question...
    #1455041 - 04/13/03 06:32 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Hey, I'm new and just wanted to introduce myself and start off with a question that I couldn't find an answer to...

If you have a jar that has already been innoculated and no mold at all is growing but no mycelium has started yet, does this mean that it will eventually begin to colonize? Is there a possibility that no mold will grow but it will never colonize?

Let's say that the strand is B+ and it was innoculated within 4-5 days. Thanks.

Yes. If the conditions (temp,etc) are not correct it may not begin to colonize or may colonize very slowly. Another possibility...the spores you used to innoculate were dead/un-usable. If you experience the latter, you may not get colonization or mold. If condition are right and spores were viable, you shouldn't have a problem...it should start colonizing very soon.

You could pick up the temp a bit to speed things along. Give it a few more days, 4-5 is borderline. Probably too early to worry. Oh yeah, and it's strain, not strand.

Don't give up!

THese are REALLY long incubation times. IF you past 15 days, check your technique for flaws. Your temps are off, your substrate is too wet, your syringe making sucks, or there may be too much (or not enough for that matter) air exchange.
