hoo poo turning yellow but no pins HELP PLEASE!
    #1349563 - 03/04/03 11:23 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)



A Foaf asked me to post these for him and see if anyone has any idea what is keeping it from fruiting? Is this some form of contam? He says it doesn't smell and he heard that Horse poo (the pic is rice cake mixed with horse poo its been in a tank for almost 3 weeks now with no signs of pins just this funny yellow loooking stuff. He says the temps were ranging from 55 F at Night to 78 F during the day. the humidy may have been to high so he put them in a new perlite tank

He's really curious to know if anyone else has seen anything like this before? Is it related to horse poo?

Thanks

Hard to tell from the pic, could be mycelium excretion. I've used horse dung before and that coloration happened to me once, the problem was a mix of lack of oxigen and low temperature, stabilizing those parameters (increasing air exchange and rising temp) resolved the problem in my case.

Thanks my foaf says he's using a 10 gallon perlite tank with plastic wrap "lid" so air exchange could indeed be a problem. He's been fanning it once of twice a day. Would a different kind of tank be more effective when working with poo?

Sorry bout the lousy pic his camera doesn't seem to like taking pics of anything closer then about 3' away

The bigger the better.

Anyway, if you're giving the mycelium the right parameters but it doesn't colonize the dung after a couple of days, you should consider starting all over. This last pic shows (as far as i can see) a very humid dung, too much water makes the growth stall and creates a good environment for contaminants.
What about those uncolonized areas ? You should let the casing incubate longer after the transfer.
