how soon do contaminated jars need to be tossed?
    #25884265 - 03/19/19 08:48 PM (1 year, 11 months ago)

hey everyone!! first post here, but i've lurked for awhile. i searched and couldn't find a specific answer to my question.

i'm going to be inoculating some jars soon for a BRF grow, but i might be leaving town for around a week or so during the colonization process. if (let's be real, when) some jars get contaminated, is it alright to leave them around the other jars while i'm away? i figure it'll be fine since all the jars are closed, but i just wanted to make sure. i'm not planning on reusing any contaminated jars, so i wouldn't be opening them at all.

thank you!!

Immediately, or you can be lazy like me and let them go a couple weeks before I dump them and clean them up with the rest of the batch. But as long as you don't open them up it won't be a problem, even if you did leave them open it still shouldn't hurt your other jars.

If there is mycelium in the jar, I let it go until the myc stops growing then I take out the myc and toss it in a mix grow tub.  If contaminated with no myc, I set aside the jars until I have accumulated enough to perform a thorough bleach and boil of the jars.

Depending of the contamination, If is bacteria you can wait but if is mold or tricho you need toss him inmediatly or will drop spores in your cultivation room.

:justno:

so you're saying a contam inside a jar can go through the filter between it and the outside air? Wouldn't that also mean contams can break through the filter inside the jar?
