The pink elephant has FINALLY gotten around to innoculating with some Equador cubs!  So far 19 out of the 20 jars have mycelium without contamination, the other one shows no contamination or mycelium (perhaps it's a late bloomer).
These should make a few nice sized casings :smile:

I don't think it's contaminated. I'm very sterile and I've never had a single jar ever contaminate.

You just jinxed yourself.
Everyone gets contams....Even the best of us.

Oh shit, I just knocked on some wood, I hope I'm not still jinxed :smile:

The only thing that has to be really sterile is the needle.  If the air in the room is still, there should be no problems.  I don't even wipe off the countertops or anything.

Nope. The mexican cubensis that the pink elephant last grew didn't get me trippin at all, and I even ate 8 dry grams! However, the pink elephant sold them to some other peeps, and they reported nice trips. So, the pink elephant is going to try his hand at teh Equadors, and we'll see if I can trip off those.

hey dormit do you flame sterilize your needle? and do you let your spores hydrate before using? i'm getting extremely pissed off with some GT's that are absolutely slow as fuck, i innoculated 3 weeks ago and there is only dime size spots on a few of them, and few have yet to do anything, i made sure i let them cool COMPLETELY, i didn't flame sterilize the needle (i have yet to see any contams, i was extremely sterile) i have them in an incubator too, at a constant 84degrees, none of the stores i go to have vermiculite by itself, its all spaghnum moss/ vermiculite mix, any comments???

GT's are extremely slow, but once they get to about 50% they speed up, mind u I have waited a week for the last few centimeters to finish.........they well worth the wait IMO

Good luck

Man, you guys are working too hard at it!!!
Cook the jars, let them cool for a few hours at least. Then, get a bottle of isopropyl alcohol (90-100% by volume, at the store), dip your needle in it, pull it out, shake it off (never blow on the needle) and inject the spores. You don't need to dip the needle a second time unless you touch it to something other than your substrate.

Visual confirmation of colonization was made exactly 1 week after innoculation. However, the pink elephant didn't check for a whole week, so it could have been seen before then. If you don't see anything within 3 weeks, toss it.
