Contam or myc in liquid culture? **PIC**
    #2557508 - 04/14/04 02:18 AM (14 years, 11 days ago)

I used the standard karo tek and this is what appeared after a few days. I haven't shaken it or anything yet since I'm still not quite sure what it is. Is it safe? If it is ok, how long do I have before it loses viability?



I know it's not the best pic, but it's damn hard to take pictures of small wispy white crap in pale yellow liquids!

I think that's contam; especially if that wasn't even a week's worth of growth. How many days is "a few"?

The picture makes it look so brown.

yeah. That's a contam. Myc. should look like kleenex chunks. White kleenex. My guess is mold.

It looks like a contam to me-I did the same thing with some honey water.First time I caramalized some of the honey when I sterilized it,but it worked fine-the second time-it looked the same as the first-a few little brown spots and walah it was all pink bread mold and I lost all 12 jars!
There should be no other color than white!

i don't know what these guys are talking about
that looks about right to me for a karo jar after a few (i'm assuming 3 pr 4) days of germination from multispore.
imo it's easy to spot contams amongst myc in karo as they will be dark spots starting out in the cloudy myc
despite what these folks are telling you i'd say let it incubate a few more days
then shoot up some WBS with it
and tell me after 4 days it was contaminated
