My WBS are turning black?
    #2513496 - 04/02/04 12:32 AM (13 years, 4 hours ago)

I have some WBS that is partially colonized, but some of the seeds have turned black! The mycelium will still grow over the black seeds, but still this is distressing. I pulled out one of the seeds and looked at it closely: the blackness doesn't appear to be mold growing on the seed, and it scrapes easilly off to reveal a tan colored seed underneath. So just the seed covering is turning black. I'm not sure what this is; it doesn't smell unusual, and there are no other signs of contamination. What should I do?

if you opened those grain jars and poked around inside then i'd say there probably contaminated now even if they weren't before.

Throw them out. Better safe than sorry.

And if you ever open your jars again, keep in mind that you are inviting more contams inside, like hanky said. Also, be very cautious, as some contams can be very irritating to your eyes/mouth/skin, and some can make you pretty sick, black molds especially. So be careful.

That's not a good sign. I agree with the other guys, be careful when opening jars like that one.
