Fuck Mold..
    #3455044 - 12/06/04 04:19 PM (12 years, 6 days ago)

What the hell, my first grow went to shits when ALL of my jars got green mold.  Now 4 of 6 jars have gotten it from my second attempt.  The last jar looked so full of mycelium and just YESTERDAY, a TINY spec of green could be seen. All I can think is WTF.  I tried staying sterile as hell on my second attempt, taking every precaution.  I bought my syringes off ebay, so who knows how sterile they were.  I think I am going to buy the next ones from a legit site, like one of the Shroomery's sponsors.  I was just so sterile, and the only thing I can think of being contaminated is the syringes.  Oh well, sorry to ramble.  :crazy:

Are you PCing or trying (repeat trying) to boil?

I boiled them both times...maybe thats the reason? The first time I steamed/boiled them for 1 1/2 hours. The second time was like 4 hours...I thought they would have been sterilized then. I use a small tin at the bottom of my pot that the jars sit in so the bottoms don't get charred or something bad like that.

The single most important thing in this kind of indoors mushroom cultivation is the pressure cooker. Everything else is of secondary importance. You can experiment with changing any aspect of the technique, but finding an alternative to PCing is the most dubious enterprize of all.

I agree, non-PC preparations are risky at best. If you must try them, be sure to keep a jar aside that you haven't inoculated to [somewhat] determine if the sterilization was successful.
