Growing Progress - Too much water!!
    #597960 - 04/03/02 08:09 PM (16 years, 8 months ago)

Thanks all for the help and advice last time!  :smile:

Three PF tek jars, with four small holes in lid, covered by aluminum foil.  To incubate, were placed in a heated fishtank and partially covered.  The humidity seems too great for one jar, jar 3.  This jar has a pool of water at the bottom!  I put 4ccs of solution into this one, but that doesnt quite account for all that water!  :frown: 

Jars 2, 3, and 1 in that order:

Covered the entire fishtank with a towel instead of the tile lid.  This will reduce humidity... but...

Jar 3:

For Jar 3:  removed the tinfoil and loosened the lid... should this be done to the other jars?  They dont have any pools of water but have condensation on the sides.  Attempt to drain the water from the jar?

Jar 2 has a bit of faint blue on one side, but cant tell if its mold yet! :frown:

These were started on Mar14 and started showing full 'outside' colonization about five days ago.

Are there lids and bands underneath that foil?
If so I'd take that foil off. As the jars reach about
half done. I'd flip em and remove the tape.
Just my 2cc's. Hope that helps.
