Leetle teensy bit of black mold (PF tek)
    #2744322 - 05/29/04 02:49 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I used a pressure cooker and all that, but I scorched the bottom of the jars by turning up my heating pad too much, and about a week went by with no colonization so I didn't think anything was going to happen, I kept the jars around but knocked them over and stuff, not paying much attention to them. Sure enough most of them did colonize, but the vermiculite at the top got tossed around and most of them have small amounts of contamination at the top. The one that colonized the fastest and has started pinning only had a very small amount just around the top, and the black mold looked about as harmless/pedestrian as black mold can look (?), and the mycaelium quickly overtook it. I'm wondering, can I just cut the contaminated part off and hope for the best? Or should I not even worry about it? Or should I toss it out? Any input appreiciated, thanks, sorry if I sound like a dumbass but this is the first time I've had contamination.

I would toss it, I am not an expert on this, but I BELIEVE that black mold in harmful to us..... I tossed all my jars that were infected by it....

One potential problem is that the mold might be more extensive than you think. The black/green/red that is seen with contams is often just the fruiting structures produced by the mold. . .think of a green mold on an agar plate, usually white with a big green center. The black that you see may just be the mold forming fruiting structures at the top of the jar.
On the other hand, it could just be a tiny bit of mold. This isn't a good situation or anything, but soaking the works in 1:100 bleach solution might decontaminate it enough without killing the mycelium.
I think anytime you see mold in grian jars, you shouldn't push it. Use those jars to play around with that outdoor tek you've been meaning to try.
