Honey tek contam identification plz : )
    #4005897 - 04/02/05 07:53 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Ok can you tell me if this is contamed or if it is mycellium i now the pics aren't great but maybe some pointer on indentifying the contam. It is a 5% honey solution. Thats right i pushed the envelop to 5% : P And its portabella : )





thanks for your help, and on my other jar i didn't post their is little wispy white strands growing i assume this is mycellium.

On the pictured jar i cloned from the stem of a bella where it atached to casing. Droped it in the honey and three days of no growth really then bam it hit fast.

Blue marbles are a mean contam, better chuck it.

J/K, I can't really see anything from the pic. Your description sounds fine. Keep in mind, portabella mycelium will appear slightly different from P. Cubensis.

WTF! Strange contam indeed. Launch that motha into the trash. Next time go with karo instead of honey. It's much easier to work with IMHO.

Yes i'm serious. Throw away the jar with the blue contam. That's not good. Honey has more sugars and junk in it that make it harder to see contams than a Karo solution does. Karo is much clearer and performs better IMHO!

Naaa man! You're good. Next time use Karo for your LC's. It's much clearer than honey after sterilization. Contams aren't very easy to spot in LC's. Yeast seems to look like a carbonated fizz of some sort. Molds will start to spot in there colors. In other words, molds will start to have spots around the edge of the jar to the water line. If you use Karo, they are easier to spot IMHO. Good luck!

Good luck with that. Don't mind me, i've been drinking all day because of the Final 4. Your cultures look good. I can see that you've got some condensation in one of your jars. What's the inc. temps?

portabella spore will probably not germinate in honey, also you will most likely fuck up the strain with that high of sugar content. With lc's less is better.

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.
