Wierd Colonization/Heating Pad Q's? (pics inside)
    #1841576 - 08/22/03 07:37 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

4 days ago a friend of a friend innoculated (6) 1/2 pint jars using the PF-Tek with BRF. Well today she checked them and it looked pretty decent. Here is a picture of the best one:



You can see the colonization on the left and right of the jar. However she also noticed little white and black specks in some of the other jars and in part of this one. Here is a picture, although it is kind of hard to see.



Is this a contam or what? Also another question she had was she has them in a cardboard box on hot of a heating pad set at medium heat. Is this optimal? What setting should it be put on/ how should it be set up? It is in the dark 24 hours a day. Any advice would be helpful.

I think you got the same contam I had with a certain strain. I could not get it to grow mycelium, only these black specks that colonize really quick, and almost have a whitish fiber look to them. I dont know what to tell you because your pics are black I do not see any white.

So do you suggest I throw them out? One of them is almost all white except for a small patch of those white spots, should I still throw it out. Thanks for helping. The heating pad has three settings: Low, Medium, High.
