Contamination? (Blue Meanies)
    #4237788 - 05/30/05 09:02 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys,

I have a quick question for some of you more experienced growers. I just inoculated a new set of jars with blue meanies about a week ago and now under every injection hole it appears that it is contaminated in every jar. There is however a small amount of white fuzz that you would commonly associate with the mycelium growth, but this is far outweighed by a dark blue/green substance. There is no reason that the jars should have gotten contaminated through the inoculation as a new steril needle was used. Also there was no growth whatsoever prior to the inoculation period. I guess the question is whether this is common for blue meanies or, as I fear, is contamination. Oh, and on a side note I have used spores from this same supplier (Ralphsters) with no problems. Thanks for any suggestions.

Shnob

i would have to say regardless of you using a new needle you can still be the cause of the contams. how did you go about sterlizing the needle before innoc?

Even new sterile syringes from a sponsor can occasionally be bad.

The needle is not sterile after you remove the cap, obviously you're inoculation technique isn't up to snuff.
