I guess you're following the PF TEK right?

If mold appears on top, I think the vermiculite layer is not as dry as it should be.

Can you post some pictures? Those can help a lot.

My questions:

  • Are you following the TEK precisely? Did you try some parameters other than prescribed (time, temperature, ratios, volume)?
  • How many jars are getting infected vs. how many are healthy?
  • How long it took for the infection to appear?
  • DIY syringe or bought?
  • (If DIY syringe then...) how did you prepare it, did you use a DIY print or bought one?


Oh, and don't give up. A failure is only a failure if you don't get data out of it. If you do, it's SCIENCE!!! :laugh:

:superscience:

Agree, odds are if it starts at the top there's a filter issue. Wet, too thin, churned up by mistake; all can cause a fail and let contams in. But other vectors certainly possible.

Wiping the jar rim down with an alcohol wipe before adding the top dry verm layer?

Sanitizing your needle between multiple injections in the same jar?

Between jars, fire treating the needle and giving it a little squirt after firing?

fine like sand. it mixes better and the finer gaps between them makes a more efficient filter
