contam solution
    #3502865 - 12/15/04 10:45 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

heres what i was thinking, if you had a jar with a little bit of contam starting right under your verm. why couldn't you steralize some water, add 3% perox. 10:1 steralize a syringe and before the contam got any bigger than a pea, shoot it with some solution. Then heat the outside of the jar right in the area of the contam with a small heat source keeping it centralized around the contam heating it long enough so the jar, in that spot, is very hot to the touch.

I wouldn't say that it wouldn't work in all cases, but it sounds doubtful. First, it would be very easy to throw the water content off; Too-wet substrate is bad news. Second, the patch you see is only the outer surface of the cake. . .the innards would be very tough to reach if they're infected too. Experimentation is good, though, give it a shot!

Nah, not yet, you should break the cake after full colonization and see if the contam was also growing on the inside.

It is also possible that the solution carried the contam further into the cake , if it wasn't already there. Don't get your hopes too high, but don't stop trying! Maybe you can help us all out! Keep us posted w/your results.

Well, it depends if anything was growing on the inside. You should scoop out the infected parts and case the healthy mycelium. Anyway, it all depends on the size of the contamination, if you see too much contamination after breaking the cake, then toss it.

As Mr. Lucifer's attorney, I advise you to be especially careful with
unknown biological agents. I, myself, would only handle such agents
in a laboratory grade isolation / glove chamber.

One cake isn't worth getting sick over.

Doesnt mycellium carry the toxins throughout the whole cake , and it would already be through the whole cake than one little spot by the time u squirt it with sterile water. I would toss it , just to be safe.
