Condensation and contamination
    #4709430 - 09/25/05 01:32 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

After taking some advice on this forum, I took the tape off of the holes of my PF jars and turned them upside down. I saw great results almost instantly, and my jars are becoming more colonized all the time. However, one thing that has also been going on is that I've been seeing water condensation beginning to form on the insides of the jars, and when I woke up this morning, one of my jars had green mold AND black mold growing in it.

Does the contamination have anything to do with the condensation? Is there anything else I can do to protect my other jars from suffering the same fate?

are you incubating in a TiT? if so water and contams will be able to get in through the holes. next time use pollyfill or tyvek no matter how you're incubating them.

I'm not sure what a TiT is. I was assured that the top layer of vermiculite was enough to stop any contams. Also, what's pollyfill and tyvek?

Polyfill is a pillow stuffing/filling found at craft stores.  I think Tyvek is a house insulation?

I too am curious if I have a possible contaminant or if it is discoloration from condensation?  See my post about it:  http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/8581130/an/0/page/0

Thanks!
