my emergency operation
    #1986526 - 10/07/03 12:22 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

A few days ago I was looking at my jars and noticed one wasn't growing as fast as the others b/c I innoculated it less. Well I decided to innoculate it more. A couple days after I noticed new growth. However, it wasn't the growth I expected. Cobweb mold starting to cover the inside top of my jar and starting to grow down the sides into my mycelium. Deciding whether or not to toss it (considering I only have four 1 pint jars growing), I decided I'd try and fix it b4 it got worse. This is my first grow and I doubt that what I just did will work but I decided to go for it anyway.

I took the lid off and immediately sprayed the top with Lysol where the web was growing. Then I sprayed a spoon and scooped out the web that had started growing down the sides. I also scooped out the top layer of verm and resprayed. Then replaced the top layer with dry verm and sprayed again. Now I know what your thinkin'. I might kill my mycelium doin it like this, but I was gonna toss it anyways right? It will prolly kill a bit of it, yes, but hopefully the bottom portion will continue to grow right? maybe? I dunno, but I'm crossing my fingers. Here's what it looks like after the operation:

I doubt it might work.
Did you work inside a glove box ?
Was the vermiculite sterilized before you put it inside the jar ?
You should also flame sterilize the spoon and clean it with rubbing alcohol.
Anyway, not much chances but i've already seen some good recoveries, so good luck with you experiment :wink:

glovebox? lol. nah im just a bored country kid that has too much time and not enough $. But it only took 10 min. to do that. Doesn't matter to me if it works or not but it was worth a try. I'll post it's progress in a couple days though, so we'll see...  :crazy:
