all jars contam'd?
    #1752875 - 07/27/03 01:58 PM (18 years, 5 months ago)

I inoculated about 3 or 4 days ago, and all my jars are growing greenish mycelium right where I inoculated them.

At first I thought it was the right mycelium, but now I wonder, cause it definately isnt white. Why would all my jars have this right where I inoc'd them and only there? (I used a syringe, and its popcorn substrate)

it is contamed due to the fact that your needle/syringe was contaminated...it is NOT mycellium, it is green mold, throw them away...next time you do an innoc on jars, flame the needle with a torch until it goes red-white hot, then squirt a little solution out ot the needle until you hear the syringe cool...like sticking a hot knife in cool water, but smaller noise. I use a porpane torche to sterlise all my needles in between jars.

Ah, ok I'll try that.
I thought alcohol would do the trick.

Guess not :/

a really good way to do it is to flme sterlised, then cool the needle in alcohol, then let alcohal evaporate off needle, then inject. Also like i said, it might have been contamed syringe...just throw those jars out, they are NO good.
