Are these PF-tek jars contaminated? (Pics)
    #24782424 - 11/14/17 02:15 PM (8 months, 28 days ago)

been lurking over a decade, but this is my first post.
These are pf style jars inoculated with a multi spore syringe just over a month ago. The yellowish parts only became noticeable a few days ago.
Growth of myc has continued at the same pace.

Any advice on whether or not to try fruiting would be greatly appreciated.

They look off, but since they aren't moldy if you fruit them there's a chance you will get a flush.

Looks like bacteria.  But I agree.  Try to fruit them anyways.  They may contam after the first flush but at least you might get something for your effort.

If I try to fruit in my shotgun fruiting chamber, is it likely to put my fruiting chamber at risk for future contam issues with other grows?

  Would any kind of Hydrogen Peroxide treatment up my chances? I have read that is effective for some kinds of molds, but not sure about bacteria.

Also they are just now reaching 100% colonization; should I birth now?

I realize it is a crap shoot no matter what I do at this point :frown:

Thanks for the advice so far!

SGFCs naturally have contaminates at any given time but a soap/water wash would cleanse the majority of any significant growth I’d say. It can’t hurt.

I think the general consensus is that H202 is useless. It either inhibits mycelium from growing or damages it altogether.

Per PF tek allow cakes to consolidate 1+ week after 100%.

I think you’ll get some fruits they’re not green or black yet lol
