Koh Samui, should it look like this???
    #4135484 - 05/05/05 01:04 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Now I've heard that this strain can look like cobweb or other contam in early stages but I'm gonna post these pics just to be sure. They look slightly blue green, kind of like what a bruised shroom looks like. Now I've seen green mold before but still cannot be sure of this. I'm keeping a close eye on them and have them separated from the normal looking jars. Thanks in advance for any input!









Now I noticed that you cant really see this blue-green color that they have, but maybe that's a good sign that it is not contam?

From what I see they look contamed. There should be no color but white in those jars.

that greyish green looks hella suspicious...:shrug: just wait it out and see?

Under his instruction, I taped drumsticks to his head and turned him into a sort of mummy, or perhaps a caterpiller in a cocoon. He remains this way for about three hours, making bizarre noises, pretending to be a new species that must learn to walk and talk and eat, etc. And he communicates with other life forms by way of the antennae on his head. Eventually we jam a tube from a waterbong into it's mouth and figure he's learned all he needs to know.

I don't see any green spots in there, but then the pics kinda suck. I'm guessing it looks like myc. If any of them have green then you're probably contaminated. If it's just greyish, then I'd say wait it out. Sometime myc starting out can look grey. I've also noticed that the raised writing on the jars can sometimes throw shadows that looks like spots or greyish or whatever. If you're really worried about it, seperate the questionable jars from the others and incubate seperatly. If there is contam in any of them, you will know soon enough. GL

Thanks for the quick feed back, all of your advice is sound. I already have them separated as I am very suspicious of this discoloration. But i will wait it out until I chuck 'em.

Sorry about the crappy pics, I do need to but a new digi cam this hp 2.1mp just isn't cutting it any more. Any one have a good recommendation for a good digi cam with macro (for close up shots) that is also reasonably priced?
Thanks in advance

because you both have low post counts, i'll post this if you didn't know:

DO NOT take big long wiffs of a possibly contaminated substrate. if they tell you not to eat it, inhaling it prob. isn't a good idea either. it can fuck u up, take care all

Thanks for the concern both of you, but I learned back in chemistry that you don't want to smell anything questionable. I took another look at these jars tonight and they are definitely contaminated. Now I am convinced that the syringe was bad, since my previous attempt at 7 popcorn jars, all contaminated even though I adhered to every precaution. I figured it must have been my mistake on some minute detail of some sort. This is good news of sorts since now I'm not so worried about a second attempt at popcorn. In both tries with the Koh Samui(sp) I had healthy looking mycelium interspersed with green mold. Thanks for all the help and concern, and I wish you all good luck with your grows.

fill the sink up with bleach and water-
submerge the jar and open the lid.
let it soak for a while and then remove contents.
soak contaminated jars in a bleach solution for about 12 hours and dishwash 'em.
