I believe grey is bad. If you don’t empty the leftover vermiculite from your bowl when doing pf ten, that grey fuzz is what grows on it. Of course pictures are needed for folks to answer better than I can!

I’m not seeing anything red flag. I don’t think you can overdo it with the needle. If you injected too soon, worst case scenario is you killed the first bit of spores due to the heat. Your mycelium will be white though, like chalk white. I had a jar 50% white, some grey and some green. Heartbreaking but it happens

If that happens and half’s white and half’s grey or green can you cut it in half and save the white part? i’m not hoping or planning for this but i just want to know what i’s possible and what is not. thank you too bro! hahaha i was tripping. but yeah ok. and it’s just the needle was black i think from all the smoke the lighter did. i think i should’ve left it on more till bright hot pink red. and then cool. but cool ima just wait 1-2 days and we’ll reallllly see!

I know some people have had success separating things, but I sure didn’t. Lol. I scooped out all the bad, next day it was only worse! Those spores are microscopic so just the act of scooping it away must have sent them flying everywhere. It’s not worth it to try.

As for the needle, honestly I don’t heat mine up enough due to having a lighter and not a torch. 4 of 6 jars were contaminated. I doubt any of it was due to needle contamination though

and i buy the brf jar online already sterilized so i think the only possible for me is the injecting part. the jar is like double sealed i can’t tske the lid off easy. i tried open it so i could get the needle ok good angles but it wouldn’t open and i thought its prolly like that for a reason

Please do not try to save any contaminated cakes. Do not play around with molds. Your cakes will let you know if they are good soon enough.

got you! yeah i think i’m fine. i just worried the needle was black from the flame and i didn’t let it get red hot and maybe kill the black shit. kinda how like you clean a dab nail glass you just burn it super hot. pray for me guys! i got burma spores and blue magnolia from Dr.seed.danks.

well i inject my spores about 2-3 days ago and i see fuzz but it’s not white white yet? can you tell me if this is good or bad? i did kinda shake the jar one day one? like a day after i injected? i just flipped it and it all clumped and went down and i did so like 2 times. maybe bruising a little? it looks like grey whitish fuzz. i’m super worried and just want my babies to do fine and someone tell me they are fine !!!

next time take pictures in natural light and not with camera flashlight because of the glass 

 

its too early to tell, but if you injected with spores 2-3 days ago this is not looking good,...spores usually need 3-4 days to germinate, and you have alot of grow already, also cube myc is not so light 

 

but dont throw them away yet..

Yup what he said. Sometimes it'll start off a little light and wispy but not in such a large area. Wouldn't hurt to keep em around a little longer and see if they do thicken out.

Bacteria can survive on a needle if it's not heated to red hot. Not sure how much this matters with brf cakes but it sure matters when using a scalpel on agar lol
I say this because brf are a bit more contam resistant. Agar is much less forgiving
