First time grow, possible contamination (PICS)
    #3707780 - 01/31/05 04:04 PM (14 years, 18 days ago)

I have a post on the basic cultivation forum, where I describe how one of my jars did not show any signs of growth while the other seemed to be doing fine.

However, today we checked on the jars again only to find some discoloration on the top of the jar along with the knotting that I noted yesterday in a post.

Have a look at these pictures that I just took. What would you say? Contamination? Bruising? Should we toss or not?

Yeap, toss them. Be careful when disposing the jars, do it outside your house if possible.

Alright, thanks.

One question though, should I re-use the actual jars or is it safer to just toss them as well?

PF tek (cakes) aint gonna work with those jars. You need jars wide mouthed, without "shoulders".. Otherwise you cannot birth the cakes.

With this jars you could case them but...
