A special jar
    #3299086 - 10/30/04 11:35 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Okay, so I inoculated 12 jars on the 18th. They are colonizing very fast. Extra spore solution helped no doubt :wink:

Anyways, there is one jar out of the bunch that seems a little special....very thin mycelium.

At first I thought it may be contaminated, but I took a closer look in some real light and noticed that it was fine except that the mycelium growth is very thin. I originally thought that I didn't have enough water in my jars, but the others look beautiful, in a fuzzy, moldy sorta way. :smirk:
I see droplets of water along the insides of the jars, so I'm sure that there is enough water, I'm just concerned that this can be a problem, or if this is a sign of a future problem. It is only one jar, but I don't want to lose any of my jars.
Did I do something wrong, or is this normal?
Any info would be appreciated?
Thanks

~Desiree~

Hard to say without a pic. Sounds like it could be OK, but to be safe you might separate it from the rest of your jars....

All of my jars have water on the sides, especially after the mycelium is well along.

The only jars of mine that didn't have water on the sides were too dry and stalled out.

I don't have one of those special cool cameras to take pics with. All I have is a lousy webcam, and the quality is bad. I'm sure it's fine, but I think I will keep it seperate anyways. Thanks.
