Contamination or otherwise?
    #1940109 - 09/22/03 10:27 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey all:
So there are 8 jars: 4 PESA, 4 EQ. A syringe for each group of 4. Syringes were about 8 mo. old. EQ started strong but now where the mycelium was, it looks yellow-brown with whiter mycelium around the edges. PESA look good. Is this contam, lack of water, what? Is there anything that can be done, or are the jars done for?

Note: The jars were not heated in the incubator for 2 days, and the temperature dropped to 70 degrees.

Funny - at first, it seemed that the PESA wouldn't be doing well because the jars looked waterlogged...

The little yellow - off white spots are just mycelium shit. Don't worry about it, some strains produce more then others, some not at all. It is just some metabolized substrate.

Not certain , need more info , but keep those ones with the yellowish brown colors seperated(like differnt incubator) from the nice clean white ones , it is possible you have a contam , and is best you keep them away from others till sure . Lack of moisture should not be the blame , is possible you did not sterilize as well as you could have .
Good Luck

The 4 jars that are contaminated look very strange - where there was mycelium there is now just a reddish clay color - it almost looks as if the vermiculite has changed color rather than something growing there... no smell... not little white spots, but mostly this stuff. Could this be caused by underhydration or something?

It's weird, I always hear about under hydrating? What does it look like when you over hydrate? Maybe more water is the key to success? Maybe I should stop musing. Maybe.

Seriously... don't post of picture of your 12 year old ass and expect us to not get pissed. Don't make it freakin' obvious because then you can get this web site in trouble, and that's not cool to us or you.

Whoa!... as Joey from blossom would say...


Seems like ya'll hunted barcode down...
I mean kukusz Dank and Solar had nuthin to say about this threads topic or even the user who posted this thread. Im not here to bicker but calm down ladies and gentlemen. In barcodes post in this thread I didnt see anything hostile although I do admit the posts content is gayish it doesnt warrant 3 people jumping on his case...
Ya'll are on this 12 yr old quiker than Michael Jackson would be...
Slow it down...
Some advice to barcode... pictures of boys tend to cause excitement apparently so maybe change your avatar and they'd leave you alone???

BTW I dont think the red is from underhydration Mr. Trout

without a pic I can't say for sure but that SOUNDS like a common contam I get...it seems to be where the contam and mycelium colide that you get that brown colour your talking about....usually from cobweb....which makes it look like mycelium with a ring of brown copper looking shit around it ...if this sounds like what you have its a contam :frown: toss the jars
