Karo Contam?
    #3946603 - 03/20/05 11:30 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I was looking at a foaf's Karo culture the other day, and noticed a tiny, pepper flake sized black fleck. The fleck has not grown at all in two days, but the myc is progressing nicely. Could this be a contam?

...And sorry in advance, my foaf does not allow pics.

Could be. Also could be something that got in while you were making the karo water.

You'll find out when you shoot up some jars with it. :wink:

if it hasn't grown it could be just a spore. If it doesn't grow then its not a contam. just give it time.

Thanks hatter, I'll let the ole boy know to stay away from that side of the jar. Maybe that will do it.

Like you said, he'll only know for sure when he's either got a pile of shitakes to munch on, or a pile of nasty green shit to throw out.

That's good news, because he's pretty sure it isn't growing.

"it could be just a spore."

Good point LethalX5.

Commonly mistaken as a contam by peeps new to liquid culture.
