Fucked my first grow up before i started
    #3315385 - 11/03/04 04:14 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I decided to try a mushroom grow using the brown rice flower/vermiculite cake technique. I was planing on doing it all last sunday. I was interupted after i had put all the stuff in the jars, but before i could sterilize them. I went to sterilize them just now, and noticed they reak of garbage. This probably means there is some other fungi already living in them.

Not ever growing shrooms before i'm looking for a little advice on what to do.
Should I sterilize them anyways and go forward as if they didnt reak?
Should I empty them out, replace the flower and vermiculite, and then go ahead?
Or should i throw them out all together and get new jars and start over completely?

Thanks,
N_R_Z

Empty them, wash them well with water and soap and start anew.

Yea, you didn't fuck up anything. If anything, consider yourself lucky, you now know you have a contaminated place. Take additional measures to create a steril environment, then empty out all of the contaminated crap, wipe down your jars, refill them, sterilize, then inoculate. But from the sound of things, the biggest piece of advice you probably need is to read read read!

smell is usually associated with bacterial contam. Use a little bleach to ensure cleanliness when you clean. and rince really well.

Good luck
