Karo and green mold
    #2834346 - 06/27/04 08:39 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

So, does green mold grow in Karo? I'd have to say no, the spores just stay in there, invisible, until you inoculate and loose everything in a few days. It's happened 3 times now, and i've narrowed the culprit to either be in the Karo, or in the syringe (which i don't see how it could be, because i thoroughly washed it out with 1) lots of dish soap in hot water, and 2) washed it out more with boiling water 2 or 3 times). Anyone else confirm or deny this? I have a batch of very old Karo, which is still active, but any jar i put it will have a nice little growth of myc, then have green mold over growth in less than 5 days. And i put a control jar, sterilized with the inoculated jar, in the incubator with it... a whole lot of nothing... :mushroom2:

"And i put a control jar, sterilized with the inoculated jar, in the incubator with it..."

It's critical to know the outcome of this test.
The problem is either the syringe (sterilize it next time), the karo or the substrate.
