my progress....
    #641080 - 05/23/02 12:50 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

hello again my friends!
i'll remember you my situation once more.. 5 jars sterilized (i put them on a high temp and the water went mad in the pot and after that i put the jars out,maybe some water went into them), 2 unsterilized. both shoot with 2 eq syringes (it didnt need too much spore solution,i know)

i inoculated 5 days ago. now, the 'sterilized' jars have no mycelium growth and the unsterilized have a 10-20% mycelium but both jars have 1 red spot!!!?!? what exactly is this?it's just a very very very small red spot! i saw it in both jars.
no digital camera available

what do u think?
thanks!!

Hey, I find these red spots all the time. I find that they can be a discolored peice of vermiculite or some other material from the package of vermiculite. However, its important to consider and treat this like a contam. I find a perminant marker works well for marking on the jars, and will come off with a little alcohol. Take a marker and circle the spots with a tight circle around the circumference of the spot. Now write the date by it and watch its growth and possible developement. If it grows, your screwed, if not, then it was a discolored peice of vermiculite. Good luck.

Take it easy big guy. 5 days isn't that long. I have had some jars take longer than that to show signs of growth. If no contams are showing just be a little more patient.

Ya, Road is the man...
Hey Road, drop some of that knowledge on me sometime (if you have time )

One Q, did you let your jars cool befor inoculating?
you could have fried the spores. Hope not.
Best of luck to you.

I'd recommend leaving them a little long than just 5 more days if you don't notice any contams. If conditions aren't optimal, I've wittnessed jars lacking any visual signs of coloniztion for almost 3 weeks. No point in just chucking them at day 10, due to doubt, if the jars are would just be sitting there empty for at least another week after that anyway.

I've only experienced very fast colonization once (my first grow)
and the jar showed great colonization in less than a week.....

Every other grow has taken much longer for the wihte guys to show up.

Give it a little longer.
