Stinky Soil smell In PF jars
    #4013830 - 04/04/05 08:25 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey shroomers!

Just a question regarding molds. I searched the post Anno left for all to see(very useful info) but couldn't find a mold that resembled what I just threw out. First, it smelt like my jars were harbouring some rotting soil. This was only true of the 8 jars I inoculated with Orissa spores. The growth appeared to be a light brownish colour and on one of the cakes, a small patch of mycellium was present but so was the other growth. The stink was bad though so I dumped the jars and sprayed the entire jars with lysol. I then rinsed them out in HOT water and washed them with soapy water. I rerinsed them in HOT water and plan to use them for some new cakes. Anyway, I'm rambling, I just wondered if anyone had any ideas of what I may have encountered based on the minimal info I'm providing. I took pics, but none show what I'm talking about clear enough. Thanks!

I don't know what mold that is, but I say forget about the mold, and figure out how it got there.

Then prevent it from happening again.

Did you PC or steam em in a pot?
