Was using syringe to inject water into my substrate bc I don’t like misting pins because I’m scared of causing them to abort. So Im just dipping my syringe in my gallon of distilled water and realized I went through a little spot of mold and now have infected my entire jug. They are only $1 but it still sucks to have to throw it out. Not worth trying to boil it since I don’t think boiling kills mold. And I refuse to bust out the PC for some water. Good thing I have 3 more gallons. Lesson of day...if you’re going to inject your substrate pour the water into another container to draw from. Noob mistake # 4378

Okay, so you attempted to hydrate/rehydrate your substrate with a syringe because you were afraid to mist your substrate directly because you didn't want pins to abort?

 

I'm not sure where you're getting your information from, but I can tell you without a doubt, that one can mist the shit out of a healthy cubensis colony, pins and all, with no negative consequences.

It should unless you live in a moldy area of the world. Thankfully I am in a very very dry and hot area. I have to try very hard to get mold to grow here.work with what you have.good luck all!!!
