help! is my project doomed?
    #2476179 - 03/26/04 11:19 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

When i sterilized my jars, i put foil over the tops but did not band with an elastic. if a tiny bit of water moisture was able to get into there, is my project doomed from the start?

depends on how much h2o actually made it into the jars, if it was not much then they should be good to go, but if it is to much it can slow colonization down, and if it is ALOT of h2o that snuck in they may not germinate. how many jars were made?

Only one way to find out, and its not by asking the mycelium.

If you see water collecting on the bottom of the jar, you're screwed, if not, it's probably ok. But hey, when in doubt, PC again, why waste spores when you can easily and cheaply redo the substrate?

Don't really need to use elastic, i used to simply make the foil tight. At worse, the dry verm barrier will absorb the couple dropplets of water..
