Karo Question... now with pic
    #3024978 - 08/19/04 08:31 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I tried the Karo tek, and i did get some growth, but i also see some brownish specs in the bottom. The water has also grown pretty cloudy, im guessing its contams b/c the white stuff doesnt look totally white.


you can see the brownish red stuff on the bottom, i dont remember it being there in the first place.




whats it supposed to look like?



also, when popcorn is fully colonized white in the jar, i noticed after i shake they seem like they arent so colonized, every kernel has mycelium on it, just not totally covering the kernal, again this is after shaking. Before i shook them they seem totally white, are they ready to case?

nah, but i will try try again. 

Not sure what i did wrong.  My procedure is pretty well proven, i think it may be that im not using real tyvek, only a cheap knockoff instead.  Also i used cotton instead of polyfill which doesnt seem to work as well, i noticed one jar contamed and the cotton had some green on it.

This time things will be different :wink:

That's rust. Don't worry. Happens to someone I know all the time.

argh! damn you all for not replying instantly! haha, no j/k, but i did already threw out the jar:( oh well, i really didnt like the way it looked anyway.

Plus, i can just suck out some mycelium from one of the popcorn jars and inject into another karo jar, so i shouldnt have to wait as long this time.....

and the idea of it being rust sounds very practical, as my lids are becoming pretty shabby, time to get more....
