i have recently encountered what i believe to be "olive-green mold" or bacillus) all contams are different, and i was just wondering if anyone had any experience with this, and could enlighten me with any precautionary measures that might be taken, short of isolating the jars from the rest of them.
the contamination forum is a sad place.

Isolating jars is a good idea when dealing with contams. But anyway, you should describe your situation a little better, i mean, have you birth the jars ? Which kind of terrarium or incubator are you using ?
Yeap, this is a sad place mostly, look at it as an hospital :wink: ....

i've got a tit incubating a few "waves" of hp's. i have already isolated the one's with the bacillus (olive green "burr"-looking things) i was wondering if anyone knew much about this particular contam.

my main question is: given that this thing only forms a single spore in it's parent-body cell, is there any way that i can fend it off? should i say f-it and case 'em anyway and pull a flush or two out of 'em? what i can find says nothing regarding the toxicity of this contam.
any input would help

It's hard to tell without a microscope.
Anyway, mold at this stage of development will normally lead to irreversible contamination, but there are some lucky stories.
You could try leaving the jars incubating and learn a bit about contamination, or you could be lucky....
Just don't sniff the jars and wear a mask when disposing.
