Question
    #2910090 - 07/20/04 10:20 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Note- the following is a hypothetical situation put together with pictures taken from other online sources. The people and situations in the story are false, as this was just created to test Shroomers' contam identification skills.



Jimmy Ballet innoculated a jar one day around 4 o clock PM with one syringe. At 7:30 the same night, he checked the jars and noted a strange growth on two of them (10 were innoculated, and NO other jars showed this growth). One had it in one area down the side (not very thick), but the other had a ring around it as well as this "vertical" growth. A picture from another source documenting this is shown below. Is this "syringe skeet" where Jimmy injected too much liquid, a contam, mycelium (highly unlikely as this is way early), or some sign of humidity or other depletion/excess?

We will say the strain is mazatapec.



The growth continues around the side a little more, then stops (but it wraps around the top all the way, although weaker than the vertical stripe).

I posted this in contam but am not getting any responses that I need (because I am curious as to what it is in the picture). Sorry about the double post.

i don't see any growth in your pic
but that is waaay to fast for noticable myc growth
even with myc water
if you really do see growth
it's most likely contam
watch it for a day or two
if it is contam it will spread FAST
good luck

I think it is. From what I read on the other message board, the person injected varying amounts of spore solution into the jars. He said it hasn't grown at all, and it is only in three jars in the same place they have been for the day. Hopefully he updates tommorow to see if it's spread.


I read that he did one jar of z strain. He noticed little blackened parts of the substrate (very little, looking "like a small nug of bud after you half smoke it"). Could this be the result of some water getting into the jars during boiling as he said occurred?



And I'm sure he appreciates your help, muse. I'll give you 5 shrooms on his behalf.

excess spore solution is not good, strictly speaking, as it can alter the water ratios in your jars
but you can get away with it as long as it is not too bad
re: the blackened substrate
i have never experienced this before as i have been lucky enough to use a pc for all of my (legal)mushroom cultivation
