Is this mold or contamination of any kind? Just birthed these 3 days ago and this popped up on the top of one of the cakes out of nowhere. There's also very small fine white hairs on different parts of the cake. Is this mycelium or part of the possible contamination? If it is contaminated what can I do to save it? Chop it off and mist with H2O2?
It's very fuzzy, looks like its growing out of the mycelium. The corner it's growing out of wasn't fully colonized when I took it out of the jar but it a small uncolonized spot so I brushed off as much of the unused substrate as I could to the mycelium underneath and dunked. The rest of the jars had been fully colonized for a week so I went ahead with this jar for convenience's sake.
Keep an eye on it. If it starts to turn green you should move it outside somewhere or trash it. There's no way to effectively remove mold from a cake since the mold's mycelium will have spread throughout the inside of the cake alongside the mushroom mycelium and peroxide cannot kill it.
Of course it could just be mushroom mycelium but it's a little suspicious when it starts colonizing like that over the verm particularly in a spot that may have been vulnerable to contamination.
