explosive growth on 3rd day... could this be contam?
    #4210402 - 05/23/05 04:20 PM (12 years, 4 days ago)

hey all  :smile: and thankyou for all the help everyone does for eachother on here.

now i can get pictures if needed but hopefully specs will be enough.

used standared PF tek, with steam for an hour and 1/2. (in a double boiler)

i have a very small jar (maybe 2 tablespoons full of substrate) and it is  about 1/2way covered with white fuzzy stuff (even on the bottom!). I'd assume its the spores and not cobweb because i poked like 6 holes in the top of the jar. I also put in a full CC for this tiny little container.

now i was under the impression that it takes 20days or so to colonize a jar... so is this normal? because i used such small portions and a ton of spores? :confused:

That is most likely mycellium  :thumbup:

you probably read that it takes 20 days to colonize a jar **completely** You can usually see the start of mycellium growth within the first week of inoculation (white stuff)
