Well, that sucks
    #2801843 - 06/17/04 11:12 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I just went and checked on a few of my Koh Samui jars this morning and they are all contammed with the green mold. My Eq abd B+ that I did over a week ago are doing fine. My question is what is the most likely cause of this. The only difference that I did on these jars are that I did not use a dry vermiculite layer. THe jars that did not comtam had the verm layer and polyfil. I innoculated the KS the same as I did the others. Anyone have any advice?? Thanks

The dry layer is there for a reason, it act as a buffer between the cake and the outside elements, my guess is they contamed cause they didn't have the dry layer.

Or Koh Samui is just a fucked up strain... i'm a little bitter too, i've lost quite the number of jars these past few weeks to the green death myself. Somewhere along the way we let something nasty in, for you yeah, it's probably the verm layer. :mushroom2:

I had a bit of the green nasties too, but I found out what was causing it so it shouldn't be an issue anymore.

"THe jars that did not comtam had the verm layer and polyfil."

Well that was easy to fig out

Well, I assumed that it was the dry later, but I guess I just wanted to bitch a little bit. Is that okay with you guys? :wink: Also, this is my first time with KS, and I wasn't sure if they are prone to contam or not. Sounds like they could be. I have another syringe left so I'm going to give it another go with the dry layer this time. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

Domey,
I did follow a tek. It was the Polyfil tek from Fungi Fun, and he says that he doesn't use the dry verm if he is using poly fil. So, I do have a right to bitch. You may not think so, but I do. No need to be a dick about it.

Lets be nice folks. I don't wanna lock a thread people can learn from. Poly didn't work so stick to the verm. Thanks for letting us know your results.

I used the verm layer at first with the Polyfil, and then without. I wasn't trying to cut corners, this was suggested on the Website. But anyway, no hard feelings. Someone has to give the new guy a hard time. :wink:

I highly doubt it contamed from a lack of a verm layer..I have never once used a verm layer and I've never had a problem

also ppl use polyfil with grains all the time and obviously no dry verm layer is used...more likely just a bad syringe

I thought about the syringe being bad, but it came from Ryche Hawk. Not to say he's never sent out a bad syringe, but he knows what he is doing. I've got about 3cc left in that syringe, plus another syringe of KS from TLG. I'm going to finish the 3cc's off and see how it goes. If they contam too, I'll get in touch with Hawk. I know that he has had some personal problems lately. I know that it has effected his timeline, but I hope that it hasn't effected his quality.

Just an update on this. I innoculated some Creeper that had no dry verm layer. So far, they are doing great with no contams at all. I'm now leaning towards a bad syringe of KS. This is kind of good because the jars appear to colonize much faster using only polyfil. Still sucks that I got a bum syringe though.
