Lost a whole box

White spots. The (noticable) odor coming out of the (un-opened) jars is strong and smells nothing like mushrooms.

I did a search and saw a thread saying this is bacteria.

The cause? Contaminated sporeprint. I almost guarantee it. Another box done with a different print is doing just fine.

Was it your own print or from a trade/purchase?

It was my own. That's 2 of 3 good so far. Still, it has been recommended I don't use index cards, and now I can tell why.

I'm switching to foil!

I'm sorry you lost a box man, that's a bummer. My best wishes for the ones you have left and your next attempt! :smile:
Take care

Have you tried Magash's printing tek using the 1/2 pint wide mouth jars? It works good. I did it a little different. Instead of putting foil into the jar, I just drop the cap on the bottom of the jar itself. Once I remove the cap and the print dries up, I scrape a little section of it with the syringe and dump the scraped spores into another sterilized jar. Then I squirt my sterile water from the syringe into the second jar, swirl the spores around a little and suck them back up. I do it all in my homemade glove box and it's worked good so far. :peace:
