Flakes in Karo
    #3647904 - 01/19/05 01:04 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I have 4 jars of Karo that I have been growing for some time. The problem is I have noticed some small gray flakes inside. They are about 1cm square and are in all 4 jars. There are about 5 or 10 in each jar. Other than that everything looks great, clear water, and nice big cotton balls of myc inside. I am hoping that these are flakes of rust off of the lids. Has anyone else seen this? Since these are solid pieces instead of cloudy water, if I avoid sucking them into the syringe should everything be ok?

I had the same thing happen to mine but it was a fresh jar about a week in to incubation these flakes showed up is wasnt wispy or anything like my others, i just threw it out didnt take any chances
i had a layer of saran wrap between the lid and water also though so i dont think mine had anything to do rust

Due to the fact that they are solid I really am hoping I can pull out the myc without getting them to and transfer it to a new jar due to the fact that they are the last of my store bought syringe. Trying to avoid cloning or making a new syringe. I have never seen a contamination that looked like this, usually contamination will cloud up the water or change it's color.
