Contaminated syringe or killed by heat?
    #3068225 - 08/30/04 09:18 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Turns out all of my jars of Mazatapec got contam'd with somethin.

Had 4 pint jars in one chamber and 7 half pints in other chamber. After about 6 days the 7 half pints exploded with greenish looking mold, I could not identify what it was. Pint size Mazatapec jars were started 5 days earlier but didn't exihibit these symptoms until 14 days into incubation.

Anyways I yoinked the infected Mazatapecs, and it doesn't seem any of my Golden Teachers or Huatlas got anything.

What is this green mold, and was it most likely caused by a contaminated syringe?

Tempurature of incubation chambers may have hit post 85 temps, but I do not exactly know what the effects of overheating are on mycellium.

Overheating does not cause contamination, it causes thermal death of mycelium but its not at that temperature that it will occur.

If it has been that long (14 days) then it probably was not the syringe.

I sprayed 'er down good, I really think it was a contam'd syringe though because it did not spread to any other strain of jars.

doesnt sound like it was the syringe, more like the eviroment inoculation occured in. if you really think it was a bad syringe im sure it will be replaced if ordered from a sponser, but keep in mind if you think it may have been your fault a million different contams will raid your crops in result of karma from tricking a vendor into sending a new syringe.

Well don't you think it would be a little ironic that the contams only got into every single mazatapec jar and not one jar of a different strain? Mazas were inter mixed throughout my two incubation chambers.

My lab is contam free, double chambered off, HEPA blastin, daily spraydown.
