Liquid Mycelium Contamination
    #3252728 - 10/19/04 07:53 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Is there any way to tell if a liquid culture made using either honey or karo in the container or after it's in a syringe is contaminated?

If the water is very cloudy or you notice colors other then white it could be contamed. Theres no way to really tell for sure though untill you try it. Do a test jar(s) first..

Some of the mycelium I get drops to the bottom, some floats on top, and some stays suspended in the middle. Is it supposed to be one or the other? Or does it not matter?

Does it float on top before you shake it.. like... has it been sitting for a while... then you look at it?? Mine looks like a glob of white spit on the bottom of my 1/2 pt. It's always at the bottom when I look at it... after shaking it up (which you should).. it floats all over.

Yeah, when I first look at it there's some floating on top, and some on the bottom. When I shake it, it's all over the place and pretty evenly dispursed.

Doesnt matter where it is. If its myc its myc. If its not..you'll find out shortly after trying it out.

Ive had growth on the top, it grew off the surface almost as if on agar. This was karo that was G2G'ed so the grain floated with the growth. Other then that if the growth is underwater it sinks and should have a nice clear bubble outline not a weak jagged one.
