Cool!!!
    #3697773 - 01/29/05 12:16 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

This is my first time growing shrooms.I ordered syringes and used the pf-tek.I hope i did everything right.On tuesday afternoon i inoculated my jars with B+ spores.I did 6 jars and put them in a dresser drawer with a heating pad and set it for 85 degrees.I have a remote thermometer in with it and it stays a constant 85.2 in the drawer.I checked this morning and looks like 4 of the jars are starting to colonize little white spots about 1"under the verm layer under the inoculation holes in lid.Do they need to be in a 100% light proof place while the colonize?Are these temps going to be ok?I have done tons of reading and have printed many tek manuals so i can have them handy and not bug u people no more than i have to.I just hope everything goes ok and no green meanies show up  :mad2: Anyway any advice would be appreciated and welcomed.

Light=Pinning...Means that light tells the myc. to stop growing and lets mushies know that it's time to grow....So i'd keep them in the dark...:thumbup:

O, and patience in this hobby is necessary...GL

O, and heating pads suck....(your myc. makes a lil heat...like 2-3F)
The bottom of your jars is probably like 87F and the tops are probably like 82-84F...Pads don't distribute heat well, but it should suffice if you can't get anything else...I use a TiT and it's awesome, jars colonize quick and maintaining it is a breeze...i just change the water out every month or so...or just add a bit of water with bleach lol...god i love incubators...O and wood can carry contams...that drawer will soak up water from ur jars( jars always let out some water, i found that out the hard way)...
Water evaporated and collected on the top of the dress george(sp?) and then got all kinds of bacteria growing and it eventually got in my jars....lost about 7 jars that way so far...But good luck and stay safe....O...and you could put them in a ziplock bag and put them in the bottom and leave it unzipped...that way nothing falls directly on top and you get in cool air(the bag opening in towards the ground)...Goodl luck

Well i think something is wrong.Everything was good and white then 2 days ago i started getting tan spots under the holes where i injected spores.Now all jars have this in the bottom and under every hole what could this be.

Hmmz that (left of the mycelium) is looking like a contam..

Maybe wetspot/sour rot...



How does it smell at the inoculation points?

cause there is the contact with the external contaminated world after sterilisation!

Such as dirty air or a contammed syringe (inside and/or outside)

Dont smell anything really.The spots look real dry.I flame sterilized the needle and wiped it with an alcohol wipe.Was i supposed to sterilize the rice flour and verm before i made the jar then sterilize again?I made the jars then sterilized.

Thats cool, but even if the syringe is clean, you can "inject" contaminated air in teh cake when inoculating. Or even after.
There ARE holes there...

On the picture it dont look to dry to me, but anyway its most likely an evil contam.

Do a search on mold, or grey mold here, visit the contam faq and post in that forum....

I think these cakes are lost... :sad:
