Which is more likely?
    #337236 - 06/07/01 07:49 PM (17 years, 1 month ago)

Innoculated 6 pint jars 4 days ago using BRF & Verm. Today I have observed definite mycelial growth in all 6 pints. Question: When are contams most likely to showup? Looking at the spot colonization with a magnifying glass some of the "spots" look alittle off color in the middle. Are contams likely to show up this early? Also, if it does turn out to be a contam what if I was to get a really long syringe and just hit that small area with a H202 solution. Is there a chance i can save the jar? Thanx...


Tell me something good then I might agree with you..

Of course, the bacteria's optimum temperature ranges from 0?C- 45?C some like it even hotter. So if bacteria are present they can grow as quick as your mycelium, maybe even quicker when mycelium growth temp is below optimum.

Out of the 12 jars I have colonizing there are 2 jars which show some sort of contam. One is a green algae type growth close to the dry verm layer and also where there seems to be alittle extra moisture in that area. The other is a small more moldy green type growth that you would see on old bread and doesnt seem to be getting any larger. Could this be a clump of BRF that didnt get sterilized properly during the substrate sterilization stage? Actually it looks like the mycelium is going to overrun it.
