Possible contam on rye?? Strong myc growth but brownish color.
    #3959249 - 03/23/05 02:14 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

There's a nice sea of white on most of my jars but a few of the rye jars have a brownish tint to them..Here is a pic:



What do you guys think??
ALSO what causes a buildup of water on the colonized spawn? Could overcolonization cause this? Cause i noticed it on a few jars that i let sit colonized for like an extra week.

I'm about to use these jars to spawn some poo and do a G2G transfer...can someone please tell me if this is a contam or not?

It's not a contam, I'm seeing that more and more lately. It's mushroom type material. The moisture that builds up in the bottom of a jar after full colonizaton is the excess metabolyte. You can open the lid and pour it out. As long as the jar is at 100%, it won't contaminate. If you have a flow hood, use it, but it's not necessary.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

because agar said that g2g transfer jars shouldnt be shaken..Only right after the g2g transfer... so yeh i was afraid of it slowing growth!
But growth to the very bottom of the jars has been very slow so i suppose i should've shaken them...

the jars are all flipped now and the growth is slowly spreading the bottom.
