my foaf has heard of lipstick contam before but never seen it

he thinks this could be it, there is a lipstick color growth

also some brown spots

could the rust from the lids do any harm?

oh well:eusa_doh:

can't be 100% certain of what it is
but one certainty = that ain't right
rust seems pretty harmless but is still best avoided

Yeah, don't open those indoors. If it is lipstick mold and it gets started in your house it is, so I've heard, a real bitch to get rid of.

I'd skip the simmering and would only go with the 48 hour soak. Drain well and pc.

That jar definately contains some kind of mold. It looks Lipstickish.

seems like it, it had the brown spots on the surface, i shook it and saw the reddish stuff in the core.. so it wasn't visible before the shake, i have about 5 more, not so good...

thats the problem, i dont have a pc.

first grow went well, soaked 48h, simmered and did fractional sterilization

this time only soaked for 24h... maybe thats the secret, it soaks for 48h until it literally stinks, that prolly when the nasties germinate and then i simmer and tyndallize.... oh well, just gained some experience and knowledge

People here have shown some pretty good results with fractional ster. Reefer just had an awesome grow up- and he used wbs. So I'm certainly not knocking it. But you may get better results from pf jars just cause they are easier to sterilize than grains. At least until you don't mind losing stuff and can experiment with it. Just a suggestion.

i am still to try wbs, it sounds good.

ive done 1 pf jar that worked wonderfully with the fractional sterilization

it's amazing how my house mates have the ability to rot fruits in the kitchen , everyday it's something different, im sure this contributes to nasty spores all over the place, other than molds there are fruit fly and moth nests in the pantry,,, i get so mad :eusa_snoo

Yeah, that doesn't help! Keep your area clean. I've had good luck with those flat mouse/spider sticky traps when a fly problem starts. At least in areas where you don't want to see flypaper (I firmly believe they are disgusting looking, lol). You can mount them upside down under cabinets too. I've used scented ones from catchmaster- thats probably key. Disregard the entire suggestion if you have pets.

Sorry about this one, but better luck is to come!
