WTF - White crap on my jars. - Pictures.
    #1660916 - 06/25/03 11:23 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Can someone tell me what this is? This was after pcing-I used Aberfoyle bottled water to PC (I know I didn't need too since the water would be sterilized anyway) but I did. And now my jars have what looks like calcium deposits maybe. Tell me what you think. Here's a pic.


Also-I just tried a different tek for brf jars yesterday-did just two jars to test it. The substrate mix came out different-like there was to much BRF. I used 1 cup verm/half cup brf/half cup water <--Following a tek on the shroomery's basic cultivation section. That substrate mixture was for two jars-I inoculated today-one african-one maza. My question is - did I use to much? Because it looks like I dd even though I used the tek correctly. Thanks for any help you can offer.

I've had similar results with vermiculite based substrates. It only occured when temps were too high during sterilization.

To avoid this is in the future, bring your PC to it's desired temp on the highest setting. Maintain the pressure with the lowest setting possible to avoid "cooking" the vermiculite.

What you have is not harmful, but your substrate is likely dry.

It's not a lost effort. You can try introducing sterile water into the jars. The only difficulty would be moisture consistancy. Most people top off their jars with vermiculite which would make shaking for consistancy difficult.

If you want to be on the safe side, dump them into a mixing bowl and start over.

Just PCed a small glass with a new amount of substrate/water. Only this time I'm even more pissed. Check out the bottom of the glass.
It looks like sand almost. It's about a millimeter deep too. I'm thinking the water content in the jar is perfect for the rest of it, just not on the bottom though. Think the bottom is to wet for anything to grow? I'm thinking yes. But I want some advice anyways. Thanks
