Hey guys - can you give me your opinion on this?
    #3257352 - 10/20/04 07:25 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Sorry for cross-posting this in two different forums, but my other thread isn't getting much attention.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/3256576/an/0/page/0#3256576

I'm just curious as to what you think might be causing this in all of my jars or maybe even what it actually is. I can provide more detail into how I prepared the substrate if necessary to answer the question of "what the hell is that stuff and how can I avoid it?"

Thanks.

A spore syringe I purchased from one of The Shroomery's sponsor, so I know that the spores are credible. (I hope.)

Yeah, I'm thinking of trying popcorn or rye next. I might as well move on because bird seed isn't working out for me.

:frown:

To begin with i always rinse my grains really well, then i soak for 18-24 hrs., rinse again then let drain a lil and load into cooker. I also would pc for 1 full hour after 15 psi has been reached. Some may call it overkill but as many contams as i got when i first started the extra work is worth it to me.

Perhaps I'll try letting the bird seed soak a bit longer.

looks like a Cladosporium THE most predominant genus of all airbourn contams. Hard to tell for sure from just a pic
but be carefull some are toxic and can cause severe skin infection

*soak for a full 24 hrs at least
*PC for longer at 15 PSI
or ****try a different brand of birdseed
