adding water tyo cake after sterelisation.
    #1778281 - 08/04/03 03:09 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

hi everyone.
i finaly started my 1st try in mushrooms cultivation.
but with not a very good rate of succes.( like 70% of contamination)
and some problems
1st: some jars seemed too dry after the sterelisation and a couple of days later, can i rehydrate them without including contaminant?
another problem is that i have a top layer of dry verm on each jars/glasss and that sometime the needle of seringe do not get to the wet mixtures rightly...
2nd: after i found some contaminant i brought the contaminated jars outside and tryied to get the contaminated stuff out of it. i have found out that some jars are jelly or like liguid gummy(hard to explain in english...), sticky like sperm... and was just wondering if it was normal..i think not.
3rd:also i wanted to know if the contaminated jars that i brought and let outside in a plastic garbage bag have chances of regetting healty or do i have to throw all the stuff out of the jars to an outdoor patch?(it dosnt show any or almost any sign of mycelium on them)

well that is it for now.
thanks in advance guys

what are you using for substrate, better yet what TEK are you using (PF, WBS, rye, hay, poo)? What size jars? If the cakes were contaminated with little or no colonization and you put them outside, I would say toss them or start an outdoor patch... Sorry guy, keep on truckin. Amazingly enough if you try often enough it'll work out.

check the ratio of your substrate and water. Did you cover the jar lids with foil? maybe some moisture seeped in or if you pc/boiled/steamed too long you could've dried them out.

you can try doing an outdoor patch, but the condition of the contaminated jars will be key.

hi
im using pf tek for simple mind, home made brf(mush more smaller rice chunk than flour :frown: (i used a kind of blender because i didnt have the cofee grinder yet(big mistake i think)
the glasses were aprox 1 cup each (a little more) with a lot layer of dry verm ( another mistake of mine :some glass were not full of substrate enough so its was more difficult to innoc)
i boiled them for 1.5 hour but did not refill them often enough and some glass were longget or shorter than the rest so there was too much, not enough or enough water in the big pot...
At start i had a shitty syringe with a shitty small needle that didnt suck the spore because they were alwais stuck in the needle... so i played a lot with all and it didnt work fine but after i got another syringe.but still had a couple of problem and a lot of time wasted and chances for contamination to get in (which they did)...
all in all next time it will be different (only problem again is that i have 1/4 of a sporeprint which contaminant may have had a chance to get on...)

capital: what does 'toss' mean (lol)
soochi: thanks but what exactly do you mean by 'the condition'?
the contaminated jars are outside with the contaminated part in hole in the ground and the ars 'resealed' with their aluminium foil, in a garbage bag.

toss means throw away.

if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
