5 Month Old Jar...
    #2964001 - 08/04/04 01:45 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I started some PF jars about 5 months ago. After a few days I noticed that they all had green mold growing on them. Or so I thought. So, I just left the jars in the bottom of my closet and forgot about them until today. I finally decided to clean them out and use up the rest of my spores. I opened this jar, and it wasnt green like all the others. It has all white growth on it (hard to tell by the pics but it's white) and the BRF is now like clay and it is gray. These pictures are of the BRF and vermiculite in the jar, the first pic is of the top of the cake and the 2nd is of the bottom of the cake. This jar was made from the last little bit of BRF and vermiculite that I had so it's not a full jar. Does this look growable or should I throw it away?

Thanks for any help

Cob Web mold i think.

And jars should be cleaned out as soon as you see mold on them.

I'm with Kingkole. That looks like cobweb mold.
I don't think a 5 month old contaminated jar is worth saving. My advice is to toss it and restart.
Good luck with your next grow :wink:

I definitely wouldnt use anything that looked questionable. Its just not worth the risk. Good decision and good luck this time!

DON't even open it
That jar will dump millions of mold spores into your house
Throw it out, jar and all.  :wink:
