First grow -- looks like a bit of mold [pic]
    #2769426 - 06/06/04 05:48 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I have a number of these jars colonizing, about 3 weeks into it so far. Using organic long-grain brown rice & vermiculite. Unfortunately, it looks like a bit of mold might be forming inside one of my jars.:


(if you can't tell, it's a dark green-blackish patch)

a healthy jar:


Is this indeed mold? Is there a way to get rid of just the contaminated section without endangering the rest of the jar?


This is my first grow, so I'm not quite sure what the best thing to do here would be.

I'd say toss it. That's an ugly, bad mother fucking mold, you'll be loosing time trying to save that jar.

Yeah there are some black molds that are real bad on the lungs... Id be careful emptying it out if not just throwing the entire jar out.

update --

i just looked at the jars (2 days later), and somehow, the mold seems to be receding. the hole that once was not there opened, and seems to be closing. Should I still chuck it? (photo coming tomorrow morning.)

I still think you should toss it. If you do that, or even if you don't, try inspecting the inside of the cake by breaking it. Wear a mask if you do that.

alright. I've set aside the blackmold jar and i'll cut it open this weekend. should give me a good indication of how thoroughly colonized the rest of my cakes are.

ANOTHER SHOCKING DEVELOPMENT.

2 jars have developed this yellowish patch (only on the bottoms of the jars) which looks something like this




I'm inclined to think it's not just rice and verm, but something nasty, as it's an off-hue shade of dark yellow and they look similar between jars. What do you guys think?

I dunno, but that just looks like myc piss to me. But then again, I've never seen that happen on BRF cakes.

that black spot didn't loook like mold. but it was hard to tell from the pic. was if actually a thick growth?

at first glance, I would've said it was some type of bacteria.
For some reason, I've been getting quite a bit of bacterial infection in my jars. The verm starts getting darker, and the jars stop colonizing.
