Agar contam or myc?
    #27289744 - 05/02/21 01:29 AM (5 days, 8 hours ago)

I did my first agar plates and hit them with mss. Out of 10 poured plates I dropped on 4 saved 6 for transfer/ contam control. Today I checked the 6 plates with no mss and 3 had contam whomp whomp. Got me to thinking the growth on my 4 plates may not be myc. Thing is only one of the contam plates really grew a lot but it has the most growth of anything. How do I go about ditching the contam plates? Safe to open inside and wash down the drain or is it an outside job?
I was goin to attach pics but I guess jpg es no bueno

Can't really tell you what you have going on without pictures. If you're confident they're contaminated you can wash them down the sink with a garbage disposal or throw them away

Yeah the ones I figure are contam only I tossed outside already just to be safe. I'm going to figure out this pic uploading and get some photos in here. Thanks for the reply.

Those look like myc to me. The plates that aren't as white but still have the clearish liquid spots could possibly be bacterial. Check up on those in a few days. Other than that looks good

Update, it's only been a day and they have definitely advanced.
Two of those pics up there is contam from a plate that wasn't knocked up.
These are all the hopefully myc plates.

Today it's looking a bit more promising that this is myc but still appreciate any input.
Thanks again for the reply.

Update
It's looking a bit more promising.

When should I transfer? After seeing the rope like myc?
Now before they over run each other?
Any opinions would be appreciated.

I would wait until they've grown out a little more so there's time for the faster growth to get ahead a bit and transfer that out. It's your call though, you could start transferring now if you wanted.

I did ten transfers but I've got a whole bunch of people saying it's not myc just tons of contam.
So I'm gonna ditch the original save only the best/what I find interesting and start again. Practice makes perfect I guess.
