Red mycelium
    #369405 - 08/09/01 04:52 PM (22 years, 8 months ago)

A couple days ago a friend and I innoculated several jars with PF and B+ spores. Three days later we noticed that the PF jars are doing fine, and the B+ jars are showing the same ammount of growth but all the mycelium is red! It looks like paprika sprinkled in there. Is this a dead giveaway that the syringe is contaminated?

That's contamination. The syringe may not be contaminated; it could be a lack of sterility. Make sure you're working on a very clean surface sprayed down with lysol or H2O2. Try the syringe again, if you still have stuff in it. If you get more contamination of the same color the second time, it's a safe bet that it was the syringe, and not you.

Where'd you get the syringe? I have noticed a lot of people that get their spores from sporechicks get uniform contamination, meaning it is probably from the spore syringe. They all report a red/rust colored contam.
