my first jar......
    #3754026 - 02/09/05 01:53 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

its not turning out so great, it looks awfully green! (BRF)
this was my first jar, im still awaiting my others from smart botanics, i will post pictures as soon as possible.

just a quick question, how long does it take for the entire cake to become white?
and the whole process should take about 3-4 weeks? give or take?

i am in the process of building a poor mans pod, my only problem is finding geolite this time of year.

but anyways, back to my jar, i will post pics asap thanks

If it is green it is green mold, meaning your jar is contaminated, which in turn means it is dead.

vermiculite is getting to be a real comodity, call around to green house suppliers and even the colleges AG and horticulture departments.

Congratulations, you have green mold.

OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH too bad for your jar man. definately buy a pressure cooker. i've been going nut's ever since i bought mine. sterilization is main cause of contam(well the lack of or not enough of). make sure your needle is clean with alcohol.maybe your jar wasn't actually presterilized. better luck next time. :mushroom2:

after putting in the substrate u have to wipe down the inside of the top of the jar, where the dry verm goes... otherwise the contams will use it as a 'bridge' to get to the goodies inside...
