first attempt at growing - contam question
    #4323922 - 06/22/05 09:41 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hi everyone, this is my first attempt at growing shrooms. I used the
Magic Mushroom Growers Guide with some spores I got from the free spore ring europe and a fish tank bubbler in a fishtank.  I kept everything as sterile as possible, using disinfectent, gloves, sterilzed the jars in the oven and so on, and after a while my jars were fully colonized.  Being hard of thinking, I had used pickle jars which didnt have straight sides, but I figured that if i used a fairly small amout of substrate when they dried out they would slip out.  This worked fine for one jar, but I had to smash one (erk).  Anyways, all was okay, and today I've noticed my first pinheads apperaring  :smile: :smile: :smile:

BUT i'm kinda worried about contamination, both on the large cake above, and this small one I resuced from the smashed jar

(the weird slimy bit on the lower right) Anyways, just hoping could put my mind at risk/save me from death. Cheers!  :mushroom2:

I would cut off any uncolonised bits and throw them out. They look like it might be to humid.
They are the messiest looking cakes! but well done on your first grow.
