possible contamination?
    #2180152 - 12/15/03 06:35 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

My jars are about 2 weeks into colonizing in an incubator set up with an aquarium heater. Things seem to be going well but in some of the jars the mycellium forming seems to be a darker greyish color. are they contaminated, and if are can they be saved in any way? i have to find a digital cam i will attempt to get pics up as soon as possible thank you

If there is a dark seed (may even look black) up against the glass, its most likely it is just a dry seed. After 2 weeks of contamless colonizing, its highly unlikely u got a contam.

for a while i wasn't sure what contam would look like but trust me, its not subtle. I had all 3 of my B+ jars turn freakin green and it spreads faster than mecylium. Dont ever ever ever ever ever eat a mushroom from a jar that is contamed, best case scenario you get acute sickly symptoms, worst case scenario, you are poisoned and it leaves a residual chronic effects, not worth it. Best of luck with ur B+.

If it grew really fast and looks very thin it could be cobweb, but you might be fine, too. Pics would help.

I had jars not develop for weeks, after a while they started to stink. If I were you Id hold onto them until I smelled em. Sour rot sucks.
