PF - Tek / mold in terrarium
« on: October 12, 2011, 09:53:11 AM »
I'm still fairly inexperienced and am now facing a new problem that i did not plan on seeing. I have followed sanitary precautions in preparing my terrarium and now am having problems with mold growing on the perlite. In my last attempt the mold grew from the perlite on to my cakes and i had to through many of them away before they fruited. Now I am seeing moldy perlite again, i have been trying to kill the mold by carefully pouring peroxide over the area but it seems to be doing no good. Any suggestions???...........

PF - Tek / contaminatioin?..........
« on: June 26, 2011, 10:43:02 AM »
I have 8 jars germinating, 2 have been moved into the terrarium. still in the incubator i have 4 B+ and 2 golden teacher strains germinating. this is the first time that my jars have germinated and a few of the jars have some strange looking mycelium growth. I am concerned a bit with the appearance, it is verry white in color but the texture seems to be almost more like jelly than the normal "fuzzy" looking mycelium and seems to be consuming the substrate somewhat instead of forming on top of it. If anyone wants to give me an address to send some pics or any input would be greatly appreciated.

I am a rookie but am on my third straight attempt at cultivation and for the third time ive had the exact same results=no mycelium formation.

I am using the syringe method w/ BRF vermiculite and distilled water. pressure cooking my jars, letting them cool then innoculating...about 1cc per jar.
Incubating in sterile, dark, warm (83-86degree) bins.

this is the third time in a row that i have taken every precaution i can think of, mixing the substrate to the propper proportions, and following every step ive learned via vids from this site. And each time after 2 1/2 weeks i have 0 mycelium formation. I find it odd that i also have 0 contamination formation. The only thing that i could possibly see as the problem is that (possibly) my syringes are not enough full of spores(but i would think that out of 8 jars, 1 would form mycelium). Maybe the syringes don't even really have spores in them, i can see tiny black dots floating around in the fluid but maybe its a scam?
Please help me! and if anyone has any sugestions as to where to buy reliable spores please e-mail me. cjsheehan19@yahoo.com
