something happened, what to do?
    #3922982 - 03/15/05 10:45 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

i came home and found my incubator broken. the heater broke so the water is at 65-70. i have 4 jars that are fully colonized, i just wanted to give them more time to strengthen up but they are done. then i have 4 others that are anywhere from 20% to 80% done.

well i came and inspected the jars and noticed they were really wet, there was more moisture inside then usual and there are little yellow spots. i thought it was myc piss but when i looked at them closer in the light they look like little yellow grains or something. they arent grains though im thinking they might be pins? or the start of a pin. would they start to do that without light? i dont think its contamination because the only variable that changed in my setup is temperature.

anyone have any experience with this or can help me out? im curious as to what i should do next or what is happening.

thanks guys you are all great!

Makes sense But...
>well i came and inspected the jars and noticed they were really wet, there was more moisture inside then usual and there are little yellow spots.

If unsterile water got in then your contam. chances are high....No light, no pins, simple..They're phototropic and need just a bit of light every day to form, if you didn't give them that then there's really no way u'd have pins...

Crack the lid of on and take a small breath (not to deep, hate to see ya get sick) and see how it smells...that should help..Never really had this prob. b4 thought, :shrug: Gl

How'd it break n e ways? Just isn't working or it cracked?...

I never identified what it was. There aren't any pins there, it's a half colonized jar of whole grain rice. Whatever it was, mycelium overtook it very easily.

There wasn't enough mycelium there to really put out that kind of waste, it must have been a contam of sorts.

Diver: its not a splotched like that its a round spot that sticks out of the white fuzz. on some its just a little yellow oval, it looks as if a rice piece is sticking out of the myc but its not.

Shroomguy: if i birth them now and for some reason they ARE contaminated, are my other cakes in danger?!
