Added Water to my Pint Jars
    #2057944 - 10/30/03 06:41 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

So after 5 days of no growth, I decided to add water to my jars. I know its prone to contams, but hot damn. Added it last nite, and got home today and check on them. Extremely noticible growth, within one day. Heres how I did it.

Put pint jar, filled with water from tap and plastic lid with one hole, in microwave for 1 minute. Let cool for 5 minutes, then put in for another minute, and let cool, and finally put it in for 2 minutes, then took it out and placed polyfill in hole until cool.
Placed syringe in microwave, sans needle. I then took the syringe out, assembled it, flame sterilized the tip, and then filled it up. Let cool (still a tad warm) to room temp, then put 10 cc's in each jar.


Ill let you know if I develop any contams.
Has anyone ever tried putting their syringes in the microwave to sterilize the plastic parts?

I'm thinking it may have just been coincidence. Five days for mycelium growth isn't that long, just have patience. Hopefully you won't get any contamination.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.
