What's this Contam?
    #4711335 - 09/25/05 09:49 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I'm a first-time grower, and I have two jars with some sort of contamination.

Here is the grow setup, PF+ 1/2 pint jars, equador strain.



4 of the jars look like this:



But two have some dark gray - black mold growing in them.





What kind of mold is this. One of the jars has quite a bit of myc in it, so is there any way I can salvage that? Cut it out now or wait to see if the myc takes it over? One is a tossout, but the other doesn't seem to have too much. What should I do?

Thanks,
Brandon

Well looks strikingly similar to what happened to mine.
4 of them went that route. I only saved one, i let it go like 1 & 1/2 months, the black got covered pretty quick. About that time i remembered i had it, so i went and looked at it and it had mushrooms growing inside the jar.
I Took the jar, birthed it into a bag, broke it up and there was all white on the inside(nothing was black). I let the substrate regroup in the bag for two days then cased it and put it into its own environment. Its pinning quite well.

These are the BLACK contam i got:

looks like black mold as you said yourself. some forms of it are very harmful to the human body. do a google search and see for yourself.
