Spores leftover in solution?
    #2311950 - 02/07/04 04:14 PM (13 years, 16 days ago)

I tried to do a search, but I didn't know how to phrase the question. Here is my friend's situation. A pint jar with polyfil filters was filled with popcorn, sterilized, and innoculated. After a week, growth is evident, but today he noticed something odd. The mycelium looked healthy, but in the bottom of the jar were a few very dark specks. They could have been black, but also could have been extremely dark purple. I am wondering if they could have been small clumps of ungerminated spores that slowly made their way through the maze of popcorn to settle on the bottom of the jar. Or could it be more serious? I can get a pic for identification if need be. Thanks all!

Pictures are almost required. Otherwise all we have to go on is what you say and that could be any number of things.

The easiest way to tell if something is a contam is if it grows. Watch the spots closely and if they grow then they are definitely contams so toss them.

Thanks Karen! I will have some pics up within 24 hours hopefully. Until then, the jar has been isolated and I will advise my buddy to watch those dots like a hawk.
