If one were to make a print in a jar but left the cap in too long and it started to get cobweb is it still possible to use? If the cap were removed would the contams eventually die leaving viable spores? And if this is possible how long would one wait before using the print?

I think you are out of luck... The cobweb probably left behind tiny little batches of reproduction.. so when you pass the spores into the substrate and the nice friendly environment they will sprout... just like your spores. i wish it was that easy to have them die off... if that were the case i dont think we would have to worry about sterilization.. you could always try it... but i think you will be wasting time and effort. you have to wonder if the cobwed was allowed itself to sporulate (sp?)... if it didnt... then you might be good. but im not an expert. thats just my understanding of these things to my limited knowledge. ive only had one successful flush... but it took me forever. i went through almost 4 batches. encountered several different kinds of molds and wet spots... mycelium piss. hopefully you will get a second survey. if not try the search... best of luck to you!
