SAVE THE PESA'S (Day 9 Pics)
    #4076741 - 04/20/05 01:36 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

currently i switched to grain spawn and have been semi-successfull. i ordered some pesa spores and out of 5 pf cakes and 6 ml's of spores all i got was a very small patch (about the size of a quarter after 1 month of incubation)of mycellium. what i did was broke the colonized piece of the cake out and placed it a new sandwich bag. then i broke that up and spread it out between 4 quarts of grains. well let me just say grains are fricken awesome cause those mini chunks colonized almost a 1/4 of the top of the jar in only a matter of 3 days. yesterday i noticed some green mold starting on the very bottom of the jarend the edge of two grains. i've already used up half the spores so i am trying to save the pesa's by scooping out very top of the grains(so they are as far away from the mold as possible)and placed them in 4 differant sandwich bags and sealed them with a zip-tie to see if they grow mold or mycellium. i was an hour and a half late to work today just so i could inspect all the grains through the bag with a 10x minoculare and none have any signes of mold. what do you guys think the chances of saveing the pesa's are?
P.S. I will keep you all informed of how this works out just incase it does.

Chances are you will get more contams, where there is 1 contam there is bound to be many more. Only time will tell for sure, obviously.

i'm just hopeing for the best. it's not my highest priority right now but i'm waiting patiently to try the pesa's but yer right, time will tell. The thing that pisses me off is i've gone through 6 cc's of solution and i've got a shitty quarter size piece of mycellium. it's like what do you do with that ya know

Chances are 99% it will contam IMO.

You only need one cc though...make a nice grain jar and a nice LC, 1cc of spores in each. Chances are one of them will grow and then you can spread that to more..

well day nine here and no contam in any of the 3 bags of grains. one of the bags of pesa spawn looks great grew in nice and full, the others just aren't growing very fast at all. i split up the one bag that fourished last night and spawned it to 5 grain jars and two karo jars. so far this morning, mycellial growth is already visable in all five jars. now will the jars contaminate??? IMO, i don't think they will based on the fact that they had plenty of time to contaminate in the bags for nine days.
