Is this a contam on top of my cake?(pic)
    #4040096 - 04/11/05 09:01 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm in the process of putting my jars into the fridge for a 12 hour dunk before I sing happy birthday to them. When I opened a few of the jars, this is what I found.


There is something trying to colonize my dry vermiculite layer. I'm pretty sure that it's just mycelium that has grown up from the cake. There are no nutrients in my dry verm at all though. I made sure to wipe the sides of the jar and everything so no contams could take a foothold. I apologize for the pic, if I come across another jar with this I will try to take a better one. The mycelium looked off white and very fluffy to me though.

:what:<--- this is me, trying to make anything out of the picture.

but, its just to far out-of-focus (even the lid on the side is in better focus), its not possible to tell anything. maby its myc (quite likely), but then again, maby its not. try again.

Here is a much better pic.

I'm pretty sure it's mycelium, but this is my first grow so I wanted to make sure.

That looks like the top of any of my jars, just strong growth. If its fully colonized, wipe the verm top off, birth the cake, wash it off with water and h2o2 and do a 24 hr dunk.

Out of the ten jars that I just dunked, half of them had that type of growth on top. I looked at a picture of cobweb in the contam forum, and the mycelia fibers didn't seem to be as tiny as cobweb. I pressure cooked my jars at 15psi for 45 minutes, and I put the dry verm layer on top. I didn't even open my incubator for the first week after inoculation. I would be very surprised if it is actually a contam. Just the fact that there is no food up there for it makes me believe that it is growing off of the cake.
