!!!!!!!!!ALL 12 JARS ARE CONTAMINATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    #4019399 - 04/05/05 11:57 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

God damn.. I am so pissed.
Me and my friend bought a grow kit from visiongrowkits.com . It came with 12 substrate jars filled with BRF and worm casings, and verm and all. They were pressure cooked and shipped. He inoculated the jars, and used every precation while innoculating them not to contaminate them.
He put them under his bed for about a week, then we moved them to a better environment with a heating pad and a hepa air filter.
All 12 of them have been contaminated.... I was hoping to get aleast some goddamn mushrooms!!!.
I was wondering what we did wrong that made them contaminated them. Should I have put some sort of filter on top of the jars to filter the air for contams??
Please some suggestions would be great...
Thanks in advance for replies

are they contamed at the injection points or random areas?

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.

I would bet that the jars were not sterile when you got them or your syringe was not sterile. I don't know how the pre mixed jars work exactly. Do they come with the water already inside? Where did you get your syringe? Is it the same type of contam in all of the jars?

I had identical results with my first grow kit (long before I found Shroomery) and it even the parts were identical to the one that guy sells. visiongrowkits.com is another Keeper reincarnation site (RE: ripoffs newbs) as far as I'm concerned.

Best route is to PC your own jars, and obtain a clean syringe from one of our sponsors. This will get you started off right, screw those awful grow kits, I hate the things.

I as well just had my first attempt at growing tainted with contams...we left 6 jars inoculated in the attic in a incubator for a week and a half all of them grew black mold all over except one was partially covered with white mycelium and partially black mold ...i think we messed up by not using a glovebox during inoculation and two i forgot the dry verm layer as i was in a rush to inoculate but i still got 4 syringes left to play with so my next attempt should work out ...my friend says the jars stunk up his house real bad and his grandma thought something died when she was over there...lol haha

hey dude look that place is a ripped you off, but it could be worse. Let me tell you about my first grow
I bought 12 jars and two syringes from fanaticus, did everything according to pf-tek, inoculated the jars, and all twelve went right through to complete colonization decided to fruit the first three, got fruits tripped, and then my grandma found a terrarium with two cakes, and i didnt know how to explain it, so before you she found the other nine fully colonized jars, i decided to cut them up and make shroom tea out of them, later I came up with the excuse that i was doing an experiment with mold, so I had to start from scratch, atleast you've found a place where people can lead you in the right direction
