    #3217465 - 10/05/04 10:42 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

My friend got those worms when he was doing his growing a lil while back, and i just read of someone wondering what they were also. Someone suggested it might be maggots. How can i prevent this? It was a subrate made of brown rice flour, vermiculite, and water.

I dont want to have the same problem. Please help guys!

Thanks

Hold sterility above everything.  Make sure you don't get any contaminants, don't let flies in your growing areas... and uh that's about it.

Just be smart about being sterile. :smile:

They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

I think what you guys are seeing is fungus gnat larva. Are there any flying insects around that look like fruit flys? If there are there's your trouble. Also at what point are you seeing these worms in your jars, terranium etc.?

When they were still incubating in darkness. My friend did think it was possibly a fly perhaps. He would crack open the jar to give it some air, that he thinks that a tiny fly he didnt notice perhaps layed some eggs in there. Im wondering if they both just werent sterile enough doing there procedures.

well if he opened the jar during incubation, that's not being sterile enough. never open your jars in incubation.
