I was so happy at first when I thought an old print had germinated.





I had the same thing happen to a BUrma print from way back.. 2009, I got all excited..  Mold.

Fucking mold germ plates/shitty prints...  Same reason I still have yet to grow Transkei...  Can't get my blob of shit spores to throw anything but hands.  :wtfsonic:
@myc I'm glad I'm not the only one occasionally tossing plates I meant to keep lol.  The empathy makes for good feels.  As for tripping in the lab, I tried that once.  Once...  Got exactly bubkis done.

I think it was the only thing that survived the 11 year print in storage. It is amazon how much more resilent mold spores are than Cube spores. The mold spawned exactly on the streaks so at first I got excited.......

  I wish I had a lab again. Alas I am doomed to the dungeon.

My AA+ print is like that. I've had is for 3-5 years now and the print was NOT made correctly. Anything but sterile tek was used. Open air, single print, lefts for days..... Just terrible. It was a big part of the reason I just stopped messing with that variant. Every plate I streaked turning into a contam highway. I had tons of others going and just couldn't be bothered with trying to clean it up. Now that I'm restarting and don't have shit going on, it's been a main focus and it actually in my top 2  performers this time around. Still not playing nice though.

Idk how prints get so dirty. I make mine in my dirty ass grow room by just setting the foil down and laying the caps and then putting a shoebox or cardboard box over it for a day. I just streaked like 15 of my old prints I made and all had no problems.


Alaska I had the same thing happen, I’m pretty sure I either added double nutrients on accident or the agar somehow separated into layers when it cooled and reheated.

All my plates looked like this

Waiting for phone to charge to grab pics but I may have some contestants for the prettiest contam plate. One is just mold with some beautifully concentric growth.
The other is striking gradient of pink/red bacterial growth. Not sure this one counts though as it is actually growing on the OUTSIDE of the plate. :laugh:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

23.01.21

Noc'd 5 LME LC's with the pan cyan BVI. Two using little wedges and three using a needle biospy. The race is on.



Opened up the galindoi/tamp plates to tip out some water. Not sure if I regret that move or not. Time will tell. But I've been having major liquid issues in my plates lately. Heating in the house hasn't been working so great so the temps having been swinging all over the shop. Maybe that's something to do with it.



Planning to put these to grain sometime. I've got a big of milo to try.

The bulk method ideology and how popular is likely one of the largest contributors to shitty prints.

Desperate growers and the pros (entire industry) Pushing Bulk on noobs. Putting down PF tek. Making 90% of all noobs start with bulk. is why so many mushroom growers make shitty prints. They grow get a high spore load and are crack whore desperate for shrooms so they cultivate half mold half cubes then they are so happy they do giveaways with the moldy prints.

Nah mine was sheer laziness. I threw some foil on my turntable and plopped a cap on it and left it there for like 5 or 6 days. not covered, pet dander and dust and one even had some resin on it from my blowing out my one hitter. lol
The ones I take my time for I do the 2 stage print method or whatever it's called (no disrespect to the member who made the write up, I just can't remember). I send the 2nd prints out and keep the first prints for myself.

Mold and bacteria club member checking in.  Bleh.

Although maybe I have some crafty myc trying to make a run for it out the bottom of the plate?

https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/27165444#27165444

I swabbed a print I made from my last grow to some new agar this morning.  First time doing that so hopefully I didn't screw it up too badly.  I need a win!

I was convinced that my syzygy plates were 100% mold. Transfers looked disorganized and odd in one way or another. Went back to check out the germ plate, and...



Tons of mold and one little spot of rhizo. Looks like I might be able to save it.





Where would you guys transfer from? :lol:

Oddly enough, the growth on the plate looks moldy as hell, but the swab itself looks like it might be covered in actual myc. Sorry for the shitty pics.

Gonna take a couple transfers from that little rhizo spot. Hopefully no mold tags along.

The weirdest stuff likes to happen to me in a growlog and this time wasn't gonna be different. All the plates germinated but they were growing abnormally slow to the point it was apparent something was up. The same problem across a bunch of pucks from different swabs, no contamination, just slow ass shit. I'm thinking I fukd up the prep for the pf-tek if that's even possible in n00b town, maybe I made them too dry or sumit, so I whipped up some agar like a normal person and transferred the little myc I had on the pucks to agar. Let's hope they recover nicely.

Yea I’d grab the tiniest pieces of those rhizo strands I could.

Variants: Maz, Whytegold


Mazatapec
-02JAN21-
2 lme plates via loop from on of my own spore prints. One I tried a zig-zag from 12 o’clock down and the other just kinda swiped across the middle.



-11JAN-
No germ on the maz yet

-23JAN-


No germ on original maz plates. I just harvested two fruiting tubs and swabbed fresh spores.

Very nice pics man. There's something so cool about putting fresh spores to agar directly from a fruit. When I do that I just use my inoc loop.

Thanks Josex! I had sterile swabs I made on hand and these didn’t produce much of a spore load, in fact some were sporeless. I’ve been looking at my loop sideways lately, I haven’t been having luck with it. But cooling it in agar and picking up spores from the gills probably would of worked great.
