Hey Anno,

Is it possible we can add pictures to that?

If so there should be quite a few pictures in the first thread here.

How about adding the possible health risks / side effects from each?

I would if I could. My only bad shroom reaction was this....

"Has anyone ever had this happen? About an hour after eating 4 dry grams I noticed a tingle in my hands. Shortly after my skin and eyes developed a redish tint and swelled a little bit. It went away a few hours later."
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Contams&Number=1078995&page=1&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

The shrooms looked textbook perfect so I have no idea what caused it. As such I'm not sure I'd be much help.

Great.

For those pictures it would be great if you could have 2 different pics at least for each contam. One of the first signs of the contam and one of the full blown contam. A lot of newbies are not familiar with the first signs of particular contams.

It could be something different and there are also at least 2 different species in those plates. When I searched the net I found several different red mold species. One of them - Monascus purpureus is even used in food fermentation: (http://www.allok.com/)

It was so beautiful that I'm almost sorry I didn't keep it.  :wink:

Great FAQ Anno! By the way, I've been reading in the newsgroup Alt.drugs.mushrooms that common table salt will kill cobweb mold without hurting the mycellium. Any truth to this that you know of?

I heard that one can apply it on casings to stop it from spreading. But this is for bigger projects.
If you have a small casing, it?s not worth trying salvaging it really...

just in case some people missed my reply to comario in the disinfectant spray post i had this dust remover stuff that when you tilt it a certain way it releases a very cold spray which can freeze stuff. so i thought you could freeze possible contams at early stages avoiding the trouble and uncertainty of h202 spray, why not freeze? anyway i thought this might be a good find for everyone. i froze the shit out of that cake, well the green and the cobweb MUAHAHAHAHAAH! ... :smile:  :grin:

If someone wanted to identify or confirm a contamination how would they go about doing it? Is it possible to do at home with some research or would it have to be sent to a lab or something?

i was thinking we should collaborate our resources and find out what and when contaminant toxins srart taking effect. when is the onset of illness, what are the symptoms etc. i dont know if you have any info on this yourself, but i tried looking up and i couldnt really find anything. i went to some of the links on the first link you gave and didnt find anything. went to erowid and went to other links and couldnt find anything. some places require a password. i will be looking it up though. wanted to see if there was any information around, to kind of add on to the faq.

How much is too much? It was my first time the other day and i consumed about a gram of shroomz. 90 mins later it barely hit so i blazed about 4 grams but it was an intense high not normal weed so im wondering if u take a low dosage of shroomz and add chron if chron becomes 10x? or if it was just mind over game?

Funky smelling Jars??

smell alone is not a contaminate but rather a lingering left-over byproduct. they certainly should be clean by now and would probably work out, but who wants stinky trays around?

an old trick my mom used to use to clean out plastic water bottles that had that mildewey scent was to mix a few spoonfuls of cream of tartar in hot water, let sit for a while, and rinse. used to take care of those. things like vinegar (half vinegar & half water), or water & baking soda also can clean/absorb the odors

Bleach & hot water seems to work if you let it sit for a day. I agree, this may not be directly related to contams, but rather, the result of. A lot of people save jars, so this would be a good addition to the board rules/stickies/faq.

hi this is my first post, and i am fairly new to the forum and cultivation in general.

anyway i had two basic questions.

first: i inoculated my first batch of quart jars a month ago. it took awhile about a week before i had any mycellium; about day 8 i got my first few blotches and they grew quickly for the next two weeks. They stopped growing at about 80% and i noticed alot of piss colored saturation i the jar (what i now know to be wet-spot bacteria). I decided to pull the jars and birth the mycellium. It was four jars, seperated into 4 seperate tupperware containers to grow. Two of the containers have done nothing yet and the other two have regroup and started to grow quickly taking on about 75% of the substrate with some small pins. Now, since I know the "saturation" to be wet spot bacteria, should i just abort the operation? should i put in a controlled environment away from other grows? or continue on and see what happens?


second question: did my second inoculation about a week ago. six jars this time, and all are 80% or more. One of these - at about 98% - just has a tiny blue-green spot about the size of a pin head at the very bottom. Toss? wait? what about a partial birth( taking the top 50%)? such a shame this just came on within the last 24 hours.
thanks!

that piss colored stuff could have just been what we call "mycelium piss". if you birthed the mycelium before it had colonized all of the substrate, your taking a big risk of contamination to the uncolonized substrate.

for the second question...how big of a spot? are you sure it's not bruising? mycelium will bruise. but it does sound like green mold to me. id say wait it out and see what happens. keep it in the jar though.

is their anyway to discern between piss and wet spot bacteria?

it is just a little tiny blue/green spot, about the size of a matchstick head. but i did look around some more and find another one about the same size. i read if i'm seeing it on the outside it's more then likely to be festering on the inside, so this one seems to be headed to the dumpster.

Lol, so this was forever ago... But I'm working on my 50 posts anyway, I have that happen almost every time. Whether fresh, dried, cooked a bit, big, small, and any amount either... I usually turn like, dark. The worst of it being in my legs, like, sort of a purple-reddish color, like being really cold almost. I'm glad to hear it's not just me that turns funny colors. Lol, I had to ask my sober friends if I was just imagining it! XD

Is this contam? [Re: comario2]
    #15159271 - 09/30/11 06:56 PM (9 years, 27 days ago)


It's been 5 days since I birthed. There is an identical cake next to this one in a separate fruiting chamber (2ltr soda bottle) that looks clean and is pinning wonderfully. This blue dot, as well as a few others, started popping up on day four. I swabbed it with a Q-tip and nothing came off. Then I used a bit more force and was able to scrape some of it off. I heard that means it's mold, but I just wanna make sure before I ditch the whole thing entirely. My fear is that it's a time bomb waiting to contaminate the successful one. Please help ASAP
Thank you

overcoming contamination? [Re: marawanna]
    #15225075 - 10/14/11 02:33 PM (9 years, 13 days ago)

My buddy has a BRF cake that started off very healthy with thick fluffy white mycellium. however, after about 90% colonization he noticed that in the middle area of growth (the cake was colonizing from each side of the jar, right and left and growing to join each other) the mycellium was off white, even grey-ish colored so he assumed contamination but wasnt so sure. however the thick white mycellium seems to be overtaking this grey area and is covering it over with pure whiteness. if the grey gets covered with mycellium completely, does this mean the cake is safe? can mycellium overcome a weak contaminate? sorry he doesnt have pics..

Simple Question about my pasteurized straw.

That I left in the water for 2 days <- laziness
And came out with a sour smell.



I decided to inoculate the bags with LC's anyways.
Should i expect anything at all?
or is the sour smell a way for the bag to say "to much bacteria, I wont give you any mushrooms"

Rabbit poo being collected in a bucket with lid has formed the "beautiful white" referred to in the cultivation section of this site. The poo is being collected from areas not mixed with urine , for this reason I was curious whether it could be inoculated without too much worry about contamination. Do I need to crush it or mix it with straw or does it have the potential to be used as is ? (Have started a liquid culture using dextrose )

My question is about the yellow colored contams. I have 3 jars colonizing at the moment and all three have a yellowish color to them, looks like they are pretty moist on the inside which concerns me. Could this be because of bacteria or can these be kept to fruit?
