Visual diff between contam and Myc. for newbie?
    #549816 - 02/13/02 10:22 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I've seen the thread asking for contam pics. Since I'm still new, I was wondering if anyone could post, say, a cobweb or similar contam next to healthy myc. AFOAF has started some jars, but was wondering if they got contam or myc. They look off-white, not bright white or fuzzy or anything. Then again, it's been less than a week.

BRF/Verm jars, oven-tek innoc. The "stuff" seems to appear over the innoculation sites, so AFOAF assumes it's the real deal. Any reason why s/he should assume otherwise?

I'd say it's myc. It starts off kind of dull and as it grows stronger it goes a nice white :smile: You should see some cool strand things forming as it grows - like heavy growth.

Your best cue visually is going to be color. Watch for reds, greens, yellows, and blacks. If you are unsure if something is contaminated or not, remove it from the location of the other jars and give it a day or two. Contamination usually spreads in a jar pretty quick. If the jars have too much moisture in them, the white mycelium can gain a yellowish hue.

Another common contaminate, wet spot, appears as a clear to slightly grey mucus in the jars. It will look like a "wet spot" that will spread and fill in the spaces between the grain or vermiculite. It also has a fairly nasty rotten apple to dirty sock smell. (No need to open the jar, if its wet spot, you will be able to smell the smell escaping from the jars.)

If a jar does contaminate, toss it. You can make yourself sick playing around with unknown bacteria, fungi, and molds.
