caterpillar in colonized spawn
    #26659046 - 05/09/20 04:31 AM (9 months, 12 days ago)

hello everyone

there is a little white caterpillar in my colonized Psilocybe allenii grain jar. did something like this ever happen to u? i dont know how it came inside. the grains were sterilized at least 90 minutes. so i assume she entered trough the lid after inoculation with agar. is it a problem? this never happened with my cubensis agar jars, anything to consider now or just ignore it and plant it in the ground outdoors?

That is amazing. What type of lid did you have? Polyfill? Depends on when it got in there- if it was before full colonization there is a good chance it contaminated.

Years ago I had nice chew holes in my lids trying to get at the grain, and maybe take poly back to it's nest
