5 grow bags, 5 contams... is it possible? Yellow, Green, Nothing
    #3327744 - 11/06/04 03:34 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have 5 grow bags that I injected on the same date. After a week three bags showed real good mycelium, and two were dead. The two 'dead' ones, after 10 days, are loose grain and show a quarter size white area on the top of the bag as seen at www.livefromhawaii.com/deadbags.jpg

Now the other three bags... looked good for a week until I peeped on them now. All three bags are showing green formation inside! Is this mold contams? What the heck? group shot: www.livefromhawaii.com/greenbags.jpg
heres a closeup:

I don't understand. I bought the pre sterilized bags for my first grow and this is how they are. I was careful while injecting on my part; flamed the needle before each injection until glowing red and cleaned the injecting site with 99% alcohol.

Anyone have any ideas what is wrong here? Did I possibly get un-sterilized bags, or just contam'd bags? What to do?

I cant tell you what to do, but those bags dont look good at all. Ide say they are contamed, but thats my opinion, lets see what more experienced cults have to say.

Thanks for the response. I'm not sure how I could have been more careful; I took my time, flamed needle to glow red before each injection, and cleaned the injection site with 99% alcohol. Everything was looking good for a week, nice white mycelium then suddenly this green appears!

also you are incubating right???( this could accoutn for the slow growth if you not)

and definitely throw out those yellow/green bags and maybe right an email to the company you got them from and ask if this ever happens most companies are pretty cool about things like that

Incubating... I injected them about 10 days ago and the bags have been sitting in a dark closet while the mycelium forms throughout the bags. I will shoot the company an email later. Any pros have any advice how or why this happened, and how to prevent it in the future for others?

complain to the bag guy, and try seeing if the syringe is Contamed.

Thanks for the reply, 4hodmt. It seems its not the syringe, as you notice the bags aren't all doing the same, two just sit there without forming much anything... Will contact the bag people and see what they can say and do.

thanks all

Although this may seem redundant, I dont really see the merit in buying presterilized bags. It isnt necessarilly the providers fault, many things can happen to packages in transit.

If you want something done right, do it yourself. Assuming you know how to do it right. Invest some time and practice on sterlization and inoculation technique. ITs either the tools or the technique at fault, why not knock off 50% of the possibilities and do it yourself. Grab some myco bags and fix the substrate up yourself. Much more rewarding that way also...and likely much cheaper. JMO
