contam. problems
    #4170594 - 05/13/05 01:41 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Ive had lots of issues with contamination. this is my first gorw and most of my jars were contraminated. i was able to save only three out of seven. im not sure what im doing wrong. when im making the substrate i clean the bowl and mixing spoon with bleach. I also clean the jars with bleach. i wash my hands before i do anything with anti bacertal soap and then rise my hands in H2O2 and let them air dry afterwards. usually leave a 1/4 of vermeculite at the top of the jars to help prevent contamination. i also out a flame to the tip of the needle before i incolnate the jars. the only thing i think might be going wrong is when i heat the jars. i dont have a pressure cooker and just boil them in a pot of water. i always boil them for 60-75min. ive seen many gorw guides on this site that have had lits of sucess this way. any suggestions?

Use tyvek or polyseal.. Verm isn't the best filter in the world, unless you're totally sure you have a clean room..

are you wiping the inside lip of the jar before you put in the dry verm layer?

not wiping the lip can lead to contams.

---

did you use the same syringe?

in other words...did you use the same syringe that you had good and bad jars?

trying to rule out a bad syringe.

---

what kind of contams did you get?

the mean green?
