Looks like contam..hoping it's something else

These look severely contaminated. I'm hoping that someone may say that it's moisture build up or that the myc. is just starting to grow so you can see the verm and flour in the back. But I may have to face the ugly truth. Not sure how they became contaminated I was very clean and proper during sterilizing the jars, and we built a state of the art glove-box. Sadness....oh well see for yourselves. Here are the pics.

Don't take any chances with contamination.

There, I did a hack job with the pictures but you can kind of tell that there is a discoloration. I'm going to go start separating them from the rest of the jars. The pics are thumbs now too s they will take you to a bigger pic. Thanks

Well im just a beginner myself but that definitly isnt good :smile: if you have a good few jars on the go id just chuck out the contents and clean it with alcohol and sterilize it and then start again on the infected ones

It looks like there just over the inoculation points so next time lysol the air befor hand, in a draft free room and make sure you alcohol the needle and then flame sterilize it after each point if you can or every 3-4 points at least

Well that's why I'm so upset. We had a state of the art [haha] glove box made and before I began I wiped off the inside of the glove box, table, top of jars with alcohol. I also sterilized the needles with alcohol and I sprayed so much Lysol that I had to sleep in a different room. What a bummer. I just did a count 31 out of 60 jars are contaminated. Actually, all the ones in one tub are all contaminated and like 4 out of the other tub are contaminated. Lost so many good strains!! SA and B+ seem very welcoming towards contams while Cambodian resists them very well. O. India seems average but I lost alot of that strain. B+ is entirely gone. ::sighs:: What a sad occurrence.

Er...mind describing a little better where it is? I just see mycelium and it looks healthy by the first pic.

did you get your prints from a shroomery sponsor? and was this your first time using the prints, maybe you contaminated them last time you used them or maybe they were just contaminated to begin with... cause if you go to the bother of making a glove box then your miles ahead of most people in the sterile side of things.
