Contam, bruising, not fully colonized?
    #1433425 - 04/06/03 02:19 PM (15 years, 17 days ago)

My dog told me that after cutting open and fruiting a myco bag in a terrarium it noticed the top of the cake to be slightly less than pure white. My dog lifted the cake out with latex gloves and touched only the top and the bottom, leaving the sides unscathed. Also, it turned it upside down (top is now on bottom of terrarium). In addition it slightly dented the side that is now on top. The bag was mainly wbs (it is fairly easy to determine the bulk of the substrate in these bags) and all the while the mycelia formed you could slightly see the seed (A black oval, as an example,was a sunflower seed). Now that it is in the tank the sides of the cake have all been covered with pins and nice fluffy mycelia but the top seems slightly stunted and not the vibrant white of the rest of the cake. In fact, it seems white on top, but just beneath there is a grayish shade (very similar to the color of the substrate). Anyway, with the information it presented me that I have now presented here, does anyone believe that this could be a contam. My dog is health conscious and doesn't want to be consuming anything but pure fungal matter. Also, it thanks you in advance for any possible information that could be provided.

If you can't distinguish any bad smell and those spots don't change or grow, i'd say it's pretty safe to continue.

The only odor is the earthy smell of mushrooms and humidity  :grin:
