Re: Dry cakes, Adding H2O? + Black mold

The safest thing, of course, is to toss everything. That's probably the smart thing. But, if you're concerned about having to wait for another spore print/syringe, you could try to take one of the least contaminated jars and (using aseptic technique in some type of draft-free area) use a sterile blade/loop to transfer some mycelium to agar or broth.

That said, I'd just throw them away!

If you open the jars and mess with the contents, you run the risk of spreading the air-borne fungal spores to your growing environment.

Just save yourself further heartache and throw out the moldy jars now. Good luck next time.

Damn that's some nasty looking shit. Yeah, like sylo said. Dont mess with it too much, keep those lids on and dispose of them outside. afterwards wash your clothes and take a shower. Even with these precautions you've probably got spores on you (unless its bacterial). Clean your incubation chamber... etc.. you get the idea.
