Contams?
    #11376917 - 11/03/09 03:07 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

Hey guys,

The top of the mycelium has a lot of yellow liquid on it and even had two spots of blue. Since I'm new to cultivation, can a more experienced grower tell me if there's any contams in here? I'm hoping the yellowish liquid is myc piss.



Thanks :grin:

Dont looks so well... does it smell different from the myc. surrounding it?

Yes, the top yellowish part smells different. I'm not quite sure how to describe it, but it doesn't have the healthy mycelium smell it had before I put it in fruiting conditions. There's only a few patches of the yellow mycelium on top, should I cut them off?

I suggest you to wash your cake, or w/e it is :wink: in running water and to see what comes off, i guess the infected areas would fall.
I had cut after this parts that looks suspicious.

You didn't wait and let all the myc colonize the cake? Unless you remember using a lot of force where the bruising occurred, it looks like your cakes might be under battle.  You have to let your cakes colonize completely before you birth them to prevent things like that from happening.  Also the yellowing of the cake should disappear after a few days since it's not encased inside the jar.

The smell shouldn't be different either.  Usually it's a good idea that you separate questionable cakes in other fruiting chambers to avoid giving problems to the good looking and healthy cakes.

Good luck.
