Meatbolites or Contam?
    #11259962 - 10/16/09 03:19 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

Does anyone know the location of some good res picures to help me distinguish if this light orange spot that appeared on one of my cakes was a contam or a splotch of metabolite buildup?


I already hacked off the corner it was on, of course. The moment I see anything other than white mycelium and blue bruise I chop a good 1" quarantine zone off and place the cake in a 2liter bottle on it's own.

Well it appears that you know what your doing.  Metabolites are pretty common.  You can check the contaim forum and see if what your looking at resembles a contaim

Meatbolites to me often look like globs of honey

I'm sorry, I just remembered we had a forum for this. And yeah, i've done my reading. But I am still just a wee padawan, so until I see thi stuff first hand i'm gonna be looking for images like crazy.

The orange was a small patch on the surface of a fully consolidated PF cake. it was small, perhaps a few mm of surface area, and a bright orange/yellow standing out against the myc. Those pics are reassuring, because most images of metabolites ar ein vitro.

There is also some perlite turning orange. My tank is a bit dirty and hase some poo cakes sitting directly on it, so I chalk this up to myc pee. The odour in the tank and on the cake in question seems the same.

I just want these cakes to survive long enough for my bulk grow to start up. I'm making my LC today my taking a biopsy of a 6 inch monster I grew.

Take a pic.

usually perlite goes orange due to the rust from the lids the cake sits on
