contam or spores?
    #450686 - 11/07/01 08:38 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

This guy I barely know said five days ago he innoculated 4 jars with a very very dark syringe. At least one of the jars received a large, visible clump of spores, big enough to momentarily clog the syringe. Today he checked them and the jars were apx 15% colonized. In the middle of the mycellium of one jar there are a few black spots pressed up to the glass. Since he's a dumb-ass, he didn't know if it was the same jar that received the clump.
He's 90% sure the spots are spore clusters, but what are the chances he's wrong?
If it's contam, will it grow?
What should he do?

It's a spore clump. I'm 95% sure.

Could also be a little bit of vermiculite or somethin in your substrate, sometimes stuff gets pressed up against the side of the jar.
