No growth in jars
    #3752016 - 02/08/05 07:31 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I inoculated 12 brf/verm jars and 9 of them got lipstick mold... due to my sanitation no doubt.

3 jars had no signs of contamination so I kept them it's now been 2 weeks with no signs of mycelium growth or contamination. The temps are at about 82F. Should I just start those jars over with my others tomorrow?

Yeah, start a new grow that one is shot. Are you using a pressure cooker?

What do you mean by start those over, re-use them? I wouldn't, start form scratch and review your practices to figure out how you went wrong the first run.

Good luck on the next one!

I had a successful grow last time. Then when I was reusing my jars I didn't bleach my jars. I don't have a PC so I used steam. I think maybe my jar cleaning is where I went wrong because I was actually cleaner this time than I was my first time.

What I meant by start over is just dump the jars, clean them etc.

I think steaming jars is where you went wrong, not the cleansing of the jars. I have never cleaned a jar out, always relied on the pressure cooker to kill off the bad stuff. It hasn't let me down all these years!

WOW. This is amazing, your story is EXACTLY the same as mine. I had one previously successful grow under my belt, re-used the jars for the second and lost most of my jars to lipstick mold, and the ones that didnt get contamed just didn't grow anything at all. Weird.

Out of curiousity, where'd you get your spores?
