My situation:
Purchase of two myco bags ...cakes stayed in the bags for about 4 months at a room temp of 66...by this time, the cakes were 90 percent....Did some reading, realized my mistake was the temperature. Built an incubator, removed the cakes from the bags and placed them in the incubater...its only been a week...one of the cakes looks beautiful it's white with billowy cotton mycellium and the mushrooms are growing in already...the other cake however is not doing as well...i discovered a dark mold growing next to it on the material it sits on....i studied the cake a little more and i saw some light green areas in the spots where this cake has the least mycellium.
I removed all material from the incubator and replaced with clean items. Then i removed and questionable part of the cake.
My concern obviously is for my other good cake...what is the likely hood that the other cake will become contaminated even if it has well established mycellium everywhere...Is it safe to take it day by day and watch closely or is this foolish?
