1st grow..heres the sitch..
    #3705445 - 01/31/05 02:26 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

so i had 12 jars, verm, brf, 1/2 pnt, penis envy strain. mostly the jars stalled on colonizing and died of contams (green molds) I got one good jar which i lovingly put into a coke bottle setup with perlite. its been like 2 weeks and no pins yet. i dont know whats going on. its kind of a on the down low setup and not too technical but i should see something i think.. I didint dunk cause it was my first grow and only one good cake so now im thinking i should have. I got some fuzzy stuff but no pins. should i dunk now or shock or something to save the grow? i really would like to salvage and getat least 1 trip for me as a good first grow experience. Please help me out... heres some pics.. P.S. i dont know what the brown crap is but thers not much of it and it doesnt look threatening.. i think it might be where water touched the cake from the sides of the bottle.

possibly, some bacterials look like that after a while... it looks more like
mycelium secretions that have dried.


schwank, try lightly scratching the surface a little with a fork and it kinda looks like your humidity is too low, after you scratch, try dunking

I don't see any humidity on the bottle walls... raise the tray off the perlite... you are covering more than half the surface area which is needed to add humidity to your air.

You did put water in the perlite right... and you have put the cap back on the bottle.

By the way, if your others had green mold, this might also be "Look-alike" green mold... It starts off looking like mycelium, but it may be mold fuz (Mold mycelium). If you start to see green or grey, then that is mold fuz.

I would go back over your pre-soak, PC and inoculation methods and look for possible methods which may have invoked contamination. (Also concider your incubation area as a culprit if you incubate with holes in your lid.)

there was no humiditiy on the walls cause i aired it out before i took apic.... yes there is water in the perlite. the problem might be not enough light. i dont have a light that doesnt need to be plugged in that will stay on for any period of time. so i try to take it out when i can. i dont know if i should try dunking it with t he scratching thing? even though its all colonized maybe just to get it kick started?
