Mushroom Contam ID? and why aren't my mushrooms colonizing ?

Recommended Posts

mycobabe

I have been waiting for this batch of mushrooms to colonize for over a month now and still nothing! This happened on my last batch too, but I assumed that because I ordered them while it was 110 degrees out that the heat killed the spores... Would anyone be able to tell my what I could have done to keep my jars from colonizing? Also, would anyone be able to ID this contam? It's light green, and wanted to make sure on the type of contam so I know how to dispose of it...

That sucks,  no one answered you.. Hopefully you got some good jars by now. Chuck that. Could be bad spores? Find a good vendor man, Also it should never take a month to show signs of growth... A month to full colonization maybe a lil longer depends on a lot of factors.. Good luck tho

Could be immature trich, or aspergillus. Looks like some bacteria started in there as well.

If its not a big deal just toss the whole jar away or empty and rinse it outside.

You could have a dirty syringe, or a flaw in your sterile technique etc. Leaning more towards bad syringe since there is absolutely zero white started in there though.

      Title Kinda states it all, Have multiple strains Knocked up By MS, bad weather destroyed all my cultures so i am restarting.  Should all be ready to go in 2 and 3 weeks.  Using WBS and Rye grains to look at differences in times and potency, takein the golden teacher to Agar as too the MS syringe is tamed. 66qt tubs,  not much more to be said at the moment either than, this will be a large grow and will start posting pictures of progress for educational purposes  when my master jars are about to be G2G. i have 16 master jars and plan setting them all to 10 jars (160 Qts of spawn). lets see if we can get pans to run strong in a mono, thats really all i care about, spore prints of the cubes will be available for trade or just for fun , Pans are up in the air as to experimental on my part  Ask questions ill answer to the best of my ablity if your curious, until then, you wont here back from me happy trails

      coming from someone who builds homes  for a living.... that will DESTROY that room in a few months, black mold everywhere etc.....love the fact that you have a GH room, thats dope but, unless you have (please dont take offense to this) a more professional build on This "GH room", you will end up destroying that room. i have though of building a shed for this purpose many time...unfortunately i do not own my own home yet

      Thank you.I didn't think this seemed right.time bulk casing I use comes from non-sponsor vendor, sms it seems really good.this Will bye muy first dedicated monotub grow- I've only done cakes so far. Dip,a little feast sms a lot of questions seem to be right in line.it seems maybe the person telling me this isn't real grower material? I've never seem any results from him, and I guess I can see why. I appreciate all your input, and I'm really grateful for your time.thank you so much.
