ants in honey water
    #750800 - 07/16/02 12:37 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I stupidly put a few jars of honey water on the floor in the original box so I could let the mycelium grow... Well, last night I opened up the box and there were ants floating in all of my jars. The one jar already had mycelium in it(very healthy too), and there were 2 jars just started and they all had ants in them. I will be using the mycelium to grow outdoors, will this still cause a problem? I don't think it will, but what are your opinions?

Yeah, I was planning on just using it. But what I have to lose is time. Time is money

Unless the ants where in there before you sterilised, it will almost certainly contaminate.

No they weren't in the jars when I sterilized, however, from what I know its hard to get contaminates in honey water. Plus, I'm growing them outdoors and as we all know mother nature has her own way of fighting contaminations, though it isnt IMPOSSIBLE either. I think you're more likely to get contaminates growing indoors rather than outdoors.
Who knows maybe I'm wrong.

Also, I have a syringe that only had about 1 cc left of spore solution in it and sterilized some honey water and sucked it up into the syringe. So most likely that will grow some healthy mycelium(without ants). I could always use that to innoculate my dung.
