Contam q's?
    #4736746 - 09/30/05 02:49 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Ive got some pretty mysterious mycellium on my hands. I lost 3 to grey(the substrate is turning greyish black powdery), 2 to green mold, and i think another 3 have cobweb.

But, I'm not sure. How long would you say it takes for cobweb to take over a whole 1/2 pint jar? Because I've suspected it to be contammed w/ cobweb, but the thing is - it said it can take over in 2-3 days, how ever this looks like cobweb(i think), and its been there for well over a week. I inoculated the jars on 13th.

Cobweb would have done you in already. Wait it out with the ? jars and redo the ones you know are bad. Cobweb is easily confused with myc. I've made that mistake before too. I had a jar that I thought had cobweb, so I just threw it in a closet and forgot about it. 3 weeks later, I found the jar full of mushrooms.

What's your substrate? How did you sterilize the jars? How did you sterilize your needle.. and did you do it every time between each jar?

im using brf/verm 1/2 pints. i boiled 6 jars at a time(did 12 total), i didnt have a pressure cooker, so i boiled for 1 1/2 hours and kept the water levels at one inch + at almost all times. As for the needle, I just flame sterilized with a ciggerette lighter until glowing orange/red.
