Are these jars contaminated?
    #2612435 - 04/28/04 07:00 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I have trouble seeing the contams sometimes(colorblind :nut:). These jars dont look to good.
I have had the dry verm fall into the jar before, making me think there was a contam. These jars have a finer grain verm than what I am used to. It is lots darker than the coarse verm.



This one looks green to me.



So does this one.




This one looks black near the lid.





This one just jooks ugly.

The first one is definitely contaminated.  No mistaking the grey at the top!  Dispose of carefully.
The last three are tough to tell.  The second doesn't look great, but I can't see obvious contam growth.  The last two could be fine, but wait it out and see if anything gets bigger [or the mycelium stalls]. 
Sorry for your loss :frown:

edit*  My numbering was off. . .the very last one is a definite goner.

So the first and last are for sure bad?

I'd say so. . .you said one of the others was black near the top, but the pic doesn't show the top. I'm optimistic that you have some workable jar(s) there, but watch for that grey crap that is most obvious in the top pic. It's very distinctive, different than the mycelium.
