if my syringes were contaminated, how soon would i know?

My last grow seems to be a complete loss. My jars all got to about 50%, stalled, and contaminated. This could be due to lack of air exchange because I didn't know if you were using polyfil you could take the foil off.

But, I want to make sure it's not my spores. They didn't show signs of contam until almost 3 weeks. I would imagine if I injected contamianted spores, the contam would show up pretty soon.

So, how long does it usually take for the contaminates to grow if they were inoculated on day 1?

If you have a contaminated syringe...the contams usually show up right away.


The contams you got on your last jars probably weren't syringe related.

check this out: my friends first grow was with an OPEN AIR, possible dirty print, homemade noob tek syringe, inoculated BRF and corn jars...
3/6 BRF jars made it
4/6 corn jars made it.

Made it as in 100% viable uncontaminated mycelium...
Don't underestimate the power of good intentions :smile:

My last syringe was contaminated. No signs of any sort of growth until about 3 days, then I had quarter sized green spots at each inoculation point on every single jar I had made. I also inoculated a bunch of the jars I made up with a different syringe, those turned out flawless.

Same situation as wuotan. If it is a contaminated syringe it will show up in about 3-6 days in almost all the inoculation points. It is useful to get a thermometer for your incubation chamber in order to see how the temps are fluctuating throughout the day. Also try leaving the top of the incubation chamber slightly off some days (to expel moisture). Just a few suggestions to try out.

I am, however, a very curious individual.
I also try to be helpful.
