Okay so this guy I know must of had a bad print of cubes, all 12 jars got wetspot. This guy has never had wetspot contam before, and now lost a whole set to them (pf type, the dry verm was still dry after boiling for 1:15) he's keeping 5 in which the mycelium tends to be doing pretty well (but keeping a close eye in case they lose the good fight) his questions are these:If by some miracle they survive to fruition (unlikely he knows) will the spores be contamed by bacillius? (he doesn't plan on eating them) or could he clone some healthy looking mycelium on cardboard and try to outgrow the shit and then use that to propagate some honey?

You'll never know if you don't try it. BUT try it as an experiment, if you have a chance to get a new clean print, get it, or else you might loose some money and patience...

It's a little complicated the way you put it, but it can be done. You can also use agar instead of cardboard. Cloning samples is a better way to try saving contaminated batches. Try reading the faqs on the subject.
