HOW does this Green SHI T Move About ???
    #3679778 - 01/25/05 10:28 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)





This jar was done on 12-16-04.Ck'ed it 4 days ago and it was OK.Today I see this green shit on the polyfill and this little in bit the jar.

In other jars I've notice the green in polyfill.There is tyvek under that.

Is the green moving toward the myc?Surely one spore didn't fall of me and land on the hole.

Looking for info to help me control the mean green.

Thanks

I have problems with green bastards too. Seems like polyfill must be in place real tight to prevent a contam. WHen inoculating I push the polyfill to the sides and am thinking I did not put it back tight enough.
But in teh end they did not take much grainjars, had a large green harvest in a strawbed though... :wink:

I place my bets on cleaning incubator and fruiting chamber real good very soon. But those spores are always present. I think working sterile, applying sterile breathing holes as tight as possible etc etc is the best bet, IMHO.

Will try packing polyfill harder.Also maybe add another layer of tyvek or coffee filter.

Thanks for the input.

must not be too tight though... ;P
My experience is that then also inoculation is more troublesome, cause struggling with the needle and such.

In my polyfill I never had other contam than cubes. In a jar with liquid medium. Then there were nutes in the polyfill.

IF I had tyvek I would use that, but it is too expensive. I use polyfill and I put bandaid (comes sterile and is "breathing") over that.
