Contamination
    #1530337 - 05/08/03 11:16 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Ok, I innoculated 11 jars about three weeks ago. All 11 had 100% colonization and within two weeks 5 jars were completely colonized. One of the slower jars developed a green mold (the type that appears on bread and such) after it was 99% finished, but only on an area the size of the circumfence of a cigarette butt. I already had cakes with pins, so I got lazy and didn't toss it out. I looked at it yesterday and the mycelium appeared to have overgrown the mold and the cake *looks* like it's perfectly healthy. My question is this: Would the mycellium be able to overrun the contaminant if the mold never got a good foot hold or is the cake still awash? i.e. is it safe to put this cake/casing into a terrarium...

I dunno about you but you got 10 more cakes...1 loss is great....maybe the mold is within the cake...maybe the toxins from the mold are within the myc structure still....grow it out seperaste and sell it instead lol =) jk

Sounds good, and I would definitely sugest keeping it isolated from your ten "safe" jars.

I would suggest cutting a portion around it out, replace with moist verm then let it sit for awhile to make sure it didnt spread, then when you go to case it break apart the mycelium around it and see if there is any green, if not you should be good to go, i would still put it in a small casing with a the most being 2 cakes used, just in case.
