PICS NEEDED FOR CONTAMINATION FAQ * 1
    #420457 - 11/30/02 02:35 PM (21 years, 3 months ago)

So.........it's been a while since I last posted.
I still want to startup the contamination faq.
Because I'm very busy with school I haven't managed to get things started.

I'd like to request pics of contams again, I will lookup more when I get the change.

So please send pics to (identifiable onces)
nononsense@shroomery.org
or much better post them in this thread please.

A contamination FAQ would be great. Beginners and mycologists would have abundent use for it.

absolutely invaluable!!!!!
not just to identify what IS contamination, but also to know what is NOT contamination.
for example:
white fuzz= good
cobweb=bad

Yess, that are the ones I can use....very nice puscle, now it's a matter of identifying. Do you know anything about those contams?

Please people these pics clearly show what I need. If more people can send me pics like these I am convinced I can get the faq started.
Thanks again puscle!

Howdy! I'm posting a pic of some green stuff that's growing in one of my casings. After steralizing all my PF jars in a pressure canner, I still had about 5 that were showing signs of contamination. I even used the Ramsey vermiculite seal tek. The only thing I can think of is that maybe they were contaminated during innoculation. So I threw all the contaminated ones into a container and cased it anyway, to see if anything capable of conversation might grow. It hasn't started talking yet but it does look interesting.

Does anyone know what this stuffi is? Is it toxic?

This site rocks -- thank you for hosting it!!

I think that is meldew. My apartment flooded and meldew was all in the carpet, and eventually spread to my cases. The bastards who run the apartments took a week and half to come clean.

That looks very nasty, it could be mildew. If it's a very agressive contam wich destroy's other mycelium than it could also be an aspergillus I heard. I have a mould contam with is green inside and white on the outside wich I am told was an aspergillus strain.
Thanks anyway's for the pics y'all.

Hmm.. I might point out that you really need a few more pictures of cobweb mold than one. That one is rather curious, its very fullgrown and appears to be quite white, as opposed to the classic grey.

Of all the molds, often people new to growing find it hard to conceive being able to discern between mycellium and cobweb mold. I wish I had a cam because I grew about 10 jars of various types of contamination not long ago and it would have been nice to have some use for them.

That defenately sounds/looks like wetspot or bacillus.
Should smell sour 2 than.
Bacteria often come from unsterile equippment.
Better do a good sterilizing step on all things.

This forum has been dead for a good while so I decided to wake it. Most of my contamination happened the last round of jars I did. The goo happened I believe because I didn't was my jars very well after I had dumped everything out. It also might have been because I cooked the seed to long and it was kind of mushy, just a little bit more than my first batch.

The black pin mold came from me being lazy. All around lazy. I innoculated without sterilizing my syringe at all with a flame. And the reason the jar looks so bad along with the others is because I haven't cleaned out my closet for a while, so they have been sitting there for a good two months.

The cobweb I believe isn't really cobweb but probably black pin mold. That is what the black pin mold looked like before it turned black.

I have never opened any of the jars so I can't tell you what it smells like except the goo which does smell like apples/socks/bacon all in one.

I will hopefully have more pics soon (not hoping for contamination but it is inevitable) so I will post more as they come. Sorry the pics are so large, I figured that it would be better that way.

Later

What is black pin mold. I have something funky in a jar and its not spreading? It looks like black dots at the very bottom of the jar. I doubt its contames because I boiled the jars in a pan for a half hour and the bottom of the jars would recieve the most heat therefore guaranteeing sterility. The dots don't seem to be spreading or multiplying. I think it might be rust from a metal that got mixed in with the verm.

Bacterial/unkown on rye





Trichoderma in jars, this is what happens when you are not clean. I did not sterilise my needle adequately between innoculation of jars. My result was a %40 contam rate.

This looks like Black Pin mold (aka Dingleberries)

They smell like coffee grounds through a mask, but smell more like feces when the mask is removed. You almost didn't get a pic that's how nasty this stuff is.

Young cobweb on a cake. It formed about a 1/4 inch layer of the mycellium and it rubbed off into a lime greenish color.

werd to the fliks of contams.....my thing is, do any of you have any pics of contamsin a liquid inoculant?....are they common?
my frog has just begun to see lots of activity in some liquidcultures on potato dextroseand water, molasses and water, and honey water......
they seem uniform, and he's fairly confident in his sterility, he's just curious...before expanding the contams(if there are any) about what to look for in this liquid....
actuallly,he can post pics of them tomorrow, prolly,....but descriptions would be cool...peace

Last time i did that i had a sore throate for a week.
Remember there could be some more dangerous pathagens which could cause some serious problems especialy with agar cultivation.

Hey, I just got some of that green stuff too I think. This is my first time also and I'm using a Myco bag. Got started under sterile conditions and everything was going good. I had about 1/4 of the bag white with mycelium, all on one side of the bag. I last checked Sunday and it was fine, today I give a look and on the side without the mycelium are tiny little green spots. Is it doomed?

Just a question from a newbie,
in that picture that juxtaposes the mould from the mycelium, which one is the mould? the really white one, or the off white one?
sorry to be such a dumbass.

the very white one, on the right is the mycelium, and the cobweb is the more grey colored wispy looking one on the left. As for getting mold or a contam in your jar, yeah, your fucked, time to dump it out, throw the jar in a bucket of bleach, or some similar way of cleaning the jars (bleach always seems like the easiest and most effective way to me), and give it an other wack.

This was a pretty nasty syringe Id assume cause all the jars ended up like this... glad It was a trade and not a vendor

Tazmanina with BRF as substrate

there were yellows, greens, slimes and even some white, some brown and black mold looked evident but everything that turned black then became something else so who knows... Looks very poisonious almost toxic... didnt bother to smell

wow nice pics. I read it all and viewed all the pics. Im gonna post pics if I see any possible contams. Heres some advice:

1. the most important: if theres alot of contam and it cant be saved, dont bothe opening the jar, throw it away. dont even smell it. much better to waste a jar then a visit to the hospital!

2. early mycellum looks like cobweb, but it usually isnt. observe the growth rate. cobweb overtakes the jar in less than a week and never turns white. mycellum may be gray or transparent in thin areas or the edges of it.

3. use a pressure cooker and cook for 45 min. flame sterilize the syringe each jar you innoculate

4. haste makes waste  :crazy:

so how about adding some solutions to contam problems in this thread. Does anyone know about the Vodka Tek to combat green mold? Could you post a link to it or a brief description.

And what about treating cobweb mold on casings with hydrogen peroxide. Just mist it on the mold early and repeat a couple times a day for the first few days. Stir the soil around a bit where the cobweb mold was the first time you mist it (with something clean of coures, not your hands) and then watch to see if that took care of it. (h202 doesnt harm mycelium). I only know that this works with cobweb mold and on casings. I haven't tried or heard of it fixing anything else, but i know it is no help against green mold.

Hello,

here are my 9 contaminated jars. All of them look differently. It was my 1st try, so I'm not experienced in identifying the contams and would be grateful if somebody just named all the contams I have in the jars :smile:
