K i have i problem.. i looked at my 30 jars lastnight and found contam on just about everyone single one except about 9 of them, well they look good so far!
all the other 21 had green yellow or either big patches of grey
I'm not to sure what i did wrong for it to contam almost all my jars! I followed the quickey tech on this site
everyithing was sterile and good so i dont know what went wrong
and some jars are taking longer then others
and i also noticed that most of the jars had yellow growing before the wite even started!
If anyone could respond to what i have said

yah i PC all my jars, for the ones that dont have anything growing in the jars yet, i dont think i let those jars cool enough before puting the spores in so it might have killed them
i ordered my spore and kept them in a droor for almost a month or maybe even longer! i think that might have been my mistake
after PCing my jars i let them cool for 2 hours then put the spores in from the 3 holes i poked on top of the jars
after i was doen i put paper towl on top and set them in my closet witha blanket over them!
i?m not sure if it was warm in the closet or not

I don't know what caused your contams, but I agree that 2 hours isn't long enough cooling time. I always wait minimum 6 hours before innoculation, and have only had one jar contam and maybe 4-5 stall, out of about 100 or so. I keep all my prints in my drawer, inside an envy, folded up in tinfoil, so I don't think your drawer is your problem.
Try again, and double check your sterility. Buy Lysol by the case.

I don't really know anyone who grows mushrooms. I just come here for fun.
