VERY slow Orissas
    #501011 - 12/25/01 08:03 PM (16 years, 10 months ago)

First time working with anything other than the PF classic race, and something strange happened. My shaved yak inoculated a PF jar with about 2cc of Indian Orissa spores from Hawk's Eye. A day later inoculated some PF classics that are already in terrarium and not really worth mentioning right now. For the first 4-5 days, the Orissa jar showed a slow growing off-white (kinda yellowish) color right around the inoculation sites. Didn't look like mycelium, didn't look like contam. For the next 20 days, absolutely nothing happens. Then, at around day 30, there was obvious (tiny, but obvious) mycelial growth around the EDGES of the inoculation sites. It's now day 46 and the jar is about 40% colonized. It was in an environment identical with PF classic jars that have colonized quickly. So what gives? I've read Hawk's spores aren't quite the brf fans the PF races are, but why start growing after 30 days? Anybody ever come across something like this before?

I didn't read your entire post but I'm guessing contamination!
Try a different strain.
Maybe I can help you, it's Christmas!

Could be. Haven't opened the jar to take a whiff or anything, yet. Since it's still growing, might as well let it go and see what happens once it hits 100%.

Yeah,it sounds like you have some sort of problem in there. Very possibly a contaminant.

Will have to give another try with the syringe. Haven't had any contams yet with this technique, so this just may be the first. At least it'll help determine if it was the syringe or something else. It's also possible the substrate was dried out during the boiling/sterilization process -- left the stove on high boil instead of low.

But what contam waits a month before growing?
