karo culture questions
    #3803129 - 02/19/05 01:55 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I've got 3 jars of 100ml water/1tsp karo that have been incubating at about 80 deg since wednesday evening (about 2.5 days). Two were inoculated with about 2ml each ecuador or z strain from purchased syringes. The third has a few flecks of gill material taken from a dried ecuador. The two syringe inoculated jars show no growth, but the gill material jar has about 1/8th of an inch of fuzzy white growth surrounding each piece of gill. It'd be pretty unlikely that this is a comtam, right?

Well, this is the best I can do for a picture, and I realize that it's not great. At this point about 1/4 inch of white, cloudy (but maybe with tiny discernible strands) material surrounds each piece of gill tissue, which was dried, but was less than a month old. In the picture it looks grayish, but is actually a bright white especially where it is denser. The clumps are nowhere near as thick or dense as the pic you posted.

looking good, contams are usally easy to spot. Any milky, fluid substances are bad. Chunky whiteish is good. If you swirl and notice milky stuff coming from the bottom, be watchful. Karo is clear so milky shit can be a bad sign
