Strange colo issues
    #27172184 - 01/27/21 05:37 AM (30 days, 11 hours ago)

so i had a lot of bags fail cus i followed a trusted cultivator's tek and he says to dry them in a strainer for 30-60 mins... which makes 0 sense because they weren't dried at all whatsoever and ended up crashing most of my bags

i still have these two left but they're colonizing strangely. one seems to avoid colonizing a certain spot, and both of them have a hard time gettin the bottom




any ideas? thanks!

Those bags are bacterial laden. Most likely they didn't get a long enough PC run. 2.5HR is my go to for bags.

used a spore syringe but i suppose i didn't PC long enough.


how much of an issue is excess moisture of the bag is properly sterilized? will it still be an issue?

and if these bags are bacterial, what should i do? they're almost fully colo

spore syringe is likely the culprit. spores to grain is risky and a huge no no in my book. ya it can work but more often than not u end up with exactly what u have. use agar to obtain a clean culture and inoculate with that amd im sure ul b fine
