Strange red colored contam, help ! :(
    #11280553 - 10/19/09 11:15 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

It's day 19 and 5/8 of my cakes are fully colonized. All were showing perfect mycilial growth untill today I noticed what seems to be a strange contam in one of my PF jars. The jar is about 80% colonized and the mycelium looks healthy and very rizomorphic. When you look at the uncolonized part of the jar near the bottom there are strange dark red dots. I'd say theres about 5-6 small dot's anyone know what this contam could be? In one spot it seems the mycelium has grown over the contamination. Thanks

Pics? The only mold I know of that's red is lipstick mold. I'm not at ALL saying I know every single mold out there, but I have experience getting lipstick on my dick and in my bag. Sounds like it could be lipstick but we won't know till you post pics.

...hopefully better ones than in your sig where you took a picture of a bottle of red liquid.

if the mycelium is growing over the spots then you ought to be fine, you might need to cut the area out later though.

One of these days all the answers will be revealed until then we learn from each other!
