I have three GooKit'd lamps - all 32 oz. None of them are sealed all the way. I've had them in my basement for the past 2-3 months. I noticed a big black fuzzy blob in my red/white not long after I put it downstairs. It has a Wizard cap on it, but no bottlecap. The size of the black fuzz is about the size of a walnut.
I picked up my green/red and noticed that it has a film of something floating just about the wax. Looks like it will fuzz up in time, too. This one has a bottlecap on it, but it's not sealed well.
Anyone else seen this before? Is this because I don't have my bottles sealed? My remaining blue/green is the last one I did and it's clear - no fuzz at all.
I used distilled water and followed the GooKit instructions 100%. Bottle was totally clean. There is no hair in the lamps. It looks just like mold. The stuff in the red lamp is black and it keeps growing.
I have birds, but they are upstairs. And even though they aren't sealed, there is a bottlecap and cap on one and a Wizard cap on another. So they are not totally open, per se.
I have a filtered Grande with original Lavalite fluid which has the same problem as yours ;)
Maybe i can take a picture later.
lol Erin you got yourself a reversed faux lamp!!
