question about my cake
    #1514727 - 05/02/03 02:05 PM (14 years, 30 days ago)

i have a cake, when the mycelium started colonizing it was fine...
now i'm not so sure if it's mycelium or not. It hasn't grown any in 2-3 days
it's not nearly as "fluffy" as two of my other jars. There's very slight discoloration but it's so slight i can't tell if it's more blue then green or vice versa. It seems like the myc might just need hydration. or is it nasty cobweb? it doesn't seem whispy like cobwebs it seems more like hardend myc. I also noticed that on the micropore tape that's covering the holes right where the hole is the tape is orangeish.

i'll try to get pics

also all the sides of the jar are colonized

I'd just chill some and see how it goes. The orangish color is probably rust from the jar. What temp are you at? has the temp changeD? how much water is in each jar?

Also, might be co2 deprivation, take off the tape and turn upside down

Untaping and flipping jars only after 80% colonization.
Give it time and take some pics if you can.
