HELP!!! Black specks in the Karo water!
    #1855185 - 08/27/03 04:22 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Is this just spores? They are kind of floating caught in the mycelium chunks. They were innoc with 1-2 cc/s spores per 1/2 pint jar but it was a very dark syringe. Has anybody had this happen before? They were in a incubator for 4 days but due to moving they are no longer and now in the dark but much cooler temps. Could this have been a problem? Thanks

I did. I made mine with a scraping from a print and thus had floating black bits. About 2 days later the blacks bits became fuzzy and soon truned into balls of mycelium with a tiny black center.

thats basically whats happening is the mycelium seems to be growing in balls areound them so I tried to shake it up. So you're saying this is not a problem. Have you tried using that water?

Had the same thing happen. The mycelium grew around them. Sucked it
into a syringe, knocked up jars, bob's your uncle.

Yeah. It sure grows fast once injected into the jars. The only problem could be it not fitting in the needle but that is unlikely since you injected with a needle. I broke a lot of it up just before using by drawing it into the syringe and shooting back into the jar a few times, once with the needle above the surface of the water. Turned everything into a nice even mix. Went back into balls a day later.

how thick was is when you hit the jars up. Also if some WBS had been previously innoc a few days ago with a multispore innoc would it benefit/hurt to try the karo water of the same strain in their since they have shown no growth and are lacking an incubator for the next week or so. I think it might still be a little early though on the honey water. there are a few pea size pieces floating around, but I've heard about the mycelium filling up half the jar which these are no where close to.

The growth slowed when it was about 1/3 full of wispy material. I had 'threads' in it and the clumps where maybe the size of a quarter but, in my mind, more importantly it was raletively thick, almost like cotton balls. The point would be that most of the spores have germinated and are active as opposed to waiting for them to hopefully become active in the jar. The longer, within reason, that you wait the more spores will be active and thus should give you faster growth in the jar.

How long have your jars been colonizing? What substrate are you using?
What do you mean "booger lookin"? I know that pinning inside of the jars can look sort of like that, but I'm not sure of your situation!
