    #375085 - 08/20/01 10:06 AM (15 years, 10 months ago)

i inoculated my jars 10 days ago (PF TEK). After 5 days the mycelium from white turned white-pink. (the same in each of 6 jars) - new mycelium grows white but after some time gets pink as well - what to do ?

How old are your syringes and where did you order from? If you have the same contam from the SporeChicks fiasco then your jars are doomed. They may fully colonize but they will never fruit even when birthed. The evil pink will get progressively worse towards full colonization. If you have a digi-cam post a pic. I can tell you in a second from a decent pic if it's the same type of contam.
Pink/purple colors in a jar are definitely not good no matter what contam it is though. Perhaps watch them for a few days and see if it gets worse or improves. Prepare for disappointment though...
