White Millet problem
    #8805071 - 08/21/08 12:43 PM (9 years, 11 months ago)

I have 5 White Millet jars that have been inoculated.  I did these exactly one week ago today....or yesterday.

I have germination and lots of colonization on 2 of the jars.  the others are showing little to no germination at all.    There is a funky smell starting to come from the incubator.  Is this bad?  I have inoculated 24 jars all together, and there is germination in every single one of them and colonization and no contams as of now!  Is it possible that those 3 white millet ones are colonizing fromt the inside??  Or is the grain starting to rot and smell bad?? 

thanks

I think for myself....therefore I am myself

I look both ways before crossing the street, 4 times.  It's not because I am affraid to get hit by a car, it would just be a real inconvenience.

Don't make a wish.  Make a decision

My idea of gun control is a firm grip!

I have a white millet mycobag that i've had for over month and it's only 30% colonized. And it took a few weeks to actually germinate, and the myc was weak and stringy. I guess I had a bad mixture of millet, or it just sucks.

Just my experiences.

P.S. funky smell = contam.
millet shouldn't stink

incubaters are contam prone. most people report a drop in contam rate when ditching the tubs. mycelium will colonize just fine at room temps between seventy and eighty degrees F. and light has little to no effect on colonization. its ok if the jars sit out in the open or on a shelf.
