Problems with Bluethumbs Magic bags
    #661419 - 06/03/02 09:33 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Has anyone else had problems with these?

A friend recently tried 10 bags with various strains.
After 30days in 80*temps 3 of the rye pouches are almost colonized.3 others only show a small sign of mycelium. 3bags are showing no signs. The last bag was full of maggots and flies.

2of the 3 that are almost fully colonized are AC and the third is EQ.
one of the bags with no signs at all is AC from the same syringe.The other 2 bags with no signs are EQ from the same syringe as the one thats growing.
Is it possible that these bags were not sterilized?

Its my understanding that 30days is a long time for signs of any growth.

Lets hear some ideas,My friend is getting very impatient.

I would recommend contacting Bluethumbs (if you already haven't) to give him a chance to resolve it.

Keep in mind this was not a flame against DrBluethumbs.

He has been very helpful and willing to send replacements out right away.

I would just like to know how these have been going for everyone else?

Thanks

maybe im wrong though.

not sterilized? what does that have to do with showing any sign of growth? the spore would germinate even if the substrate wasnt sterilized, it would more than likely contaminate though...after 30 and no contamination means that they had to have been sterilized...the one with flys and maggots is a different story....oh well, talk to the DR.

I haven't had success with those either.
On one, the grain got mushy and it stank, so I threw it out. The other, the grain colonized ok, but nothing is happening with the compost, and it's been a month.
I'm sticking to casings. Had no problems with those yet.
