blue mycelium?
    #2777922 - 06/09/04 02:50 PM (13 years, 19 days ago)

I just looked at my newest jar (popcorn spawn, lipa spores)
and its covered in mycelium (unlike it was a day or 2 prior), but like 80% of it, if not more, is a light blue psylocibin color.

What does this mean? is it really bad? what did I do wrong?

Sounds like things are getting dry

well, putting water into it will introduce contams... at least a good chance too... i say keep the jars in an incubator with 100% humidity (they should have holes with coffee filter or tyvek over it so it should get water into the jar)

i just realized that the blue greenish stuff isnt exactly always where the mycelium is..could this be some kind of contam? can my jar be salvaged?

the blue greenish stuff is basically wrapping around most of the popcorn

Toss it and chalk it up for a loss. It sounds like a contam to me.

Yea it is probably a contam, there are some teks using bleach and peroxide for cleaning, but I would just chuck it unless its a huge jar or something.

If there is greenish blue where there is no substrate chuck those jars and do it fast.
