Hi. Getting back into the hobby. Have been having some difficulty sith contams and such. Have 6 jars out of 19 with mycelium growth. 9 were mazatapec all had a bacterial contam i believe right off..lrading me to suspect syringe pissibly. At innoc sites there was yellow with some blue..moist. Tossed n cleaned.
The ones colonizing are Z strain. I used 3cc for 10 jars of ms syringe. Have 4 jars with no growth at all. Its been 22 days since inoculation. Going to leave em and xhwxk on em in a month...no mycelium. No contams growing either tho.

Just giving a background of whats going on right now. But my pressibg question is this..

Do i need to use an airport syringe for this jar lid? Got from shroomsupply. Ship and filtered ge fitting..has like a tube coming out of it (small)..any one used these before?
Going to make a LC of either zstrain or aa + albino.63b69986509a31ef9bfd3475e421b523.jpg

3cc of MS solution for a total of ten jars is not much.. might take a bit longer for it to get going if they get going at all. I use 2 cc of LC per jar.

The lid does look like you would need a sterile syringe to equalize the pressure when sticking a needle into that injection port. But, I'm not certain, never used that setup.

Maybe take one of the jars with no contam and no myc and give it a sniff? I had a couple spawn bags just recently that would not even grow the slightest bit of myc. I couldn't see any contam either, but upon smelling the air filter patch. NASTY.

Im not super experienced, I wouldnt just go taking my advice all willy nilly, and I dont wanna be a downer. But i do know, had I not smelled those bags, I might have wasted time waiting on them, rather than starting new jars.

No airport syringe needed, That is a Whatman syringe filter on that lid. Should be good to go as is, but do try to keep it dry.

I innoculated the lc last night. Nope no airport needed i feel dumb but wanted to check :)
I took one of the dormant jars and shot it up with last little bit of the syringe after making the lc just to experiment.

Smelled the dormant jars too. No fucky smells. Just brown rice.

Im bound and determined to have a number of colonized jars even if it kills me!

I think i gave wrong data. Looking at my syringes last night. It was 3cc of maz that i used between 9 jars. All contammed quickly.

8cc z strain between 10 jars. Those are the ones growing with the few no growths.

Smoking too much sorry

No fucky smells is something to help settle the brain a little haha, good luck.

I will be lurking on the thread just because I wanna know how the z strain turns out, and also Maybe get inspired to try some LC.

I'm also curious about the z strain, I've read a few interesting bits about it the last few days. I hope you have good luck with it and keep us posted!

I grew alot of zstrain years ago. Potent cubes. I always fruited around 70 degrees (winter grows) and they turned out awesome.was getting good 1st flushes. Around 1/4 dry per cake.

I cant find a way to edit. Tried the website too. Cannot find a way..and i have something very in need of editing. If a higher up or anyone in the know can pm me that would be greatly appreciated :)

But..trying to find a way-in the process i searched up my original first grow/couple grow log. Was working with b+ and zstrain. And had an lc at one point.

Thought you might want to check it out since your interested in zstrain. :)

Got 8 nocd up w albino a++ yesterday. No growth in LC yet. Maybe a thread or two but cant tell good because theres a lot of floaters(hairs)

The zstrain I have colonizing are soing good. But, one has growth from 3 holes, a couple from 2, the rest hVe only growth at one innoc point....so. Im going to have one jardone long before the others.

Will it do ok in a perlite no holes (hundred somethin qt) by itself or should i start fruiting it in a single cake fc (advice on one?) Until the otheres are ready?

Ive only ever had11-12 cake for..all got done about same time. And i know with them all close together the micro climates awrsome and get killer flushes..never had just one cake to tend to.

Advice appreciated:)

Do you mean that you made the LC and nocced up the dormant jar with leftover spore water, or with the LC you just made? I feel like you meant the former, but if it is the latter, you would need to let your LC germinate before using it. If you meant the first thing then never mind.

Looks healthy from here, though I've only ever made 1 LC before.

The tall half pints are aa+ albino. Dont know how many days since innoc. You can look back in posts. But the myc tookoff and is flying through the jars.

My zstrain. One is consolidating. One has a. Quarter spot left .

Nothing on the dormant jar i shot up again. Junk.

Also. With this success rate im still thinking the 10 mazatapec jars that contamed right away were from a dirty syringe.

Its a first for me. Although i havent dealt with a great number of syringes.

But 10 out of 10 yellow and blue growth starting not too long after innoc. + another 9 jars were pc'd and innocd right along with the offending jars. My assymption. Stoned.
Meh.

Shit happens
