GUYS I have an update on what I'm now calling the Christmas Jars!!!!
I have an untrained eye but I see minimum 3 types of mold, maybe cobweb to boot, and in the past 48 hours it looks like the red mold is trying to overtake the trich!
Definitely going to mess around with this culture on agar, should be pretty interesting
Did your friend mention what they smelled like? I doubt I would even try to smell that for fear of me making a technicolor yawn but that would be a big indicator of what he has.
