Question: Contaminated?
    #1557286 - 05/18/03 03:37 AM (15 years, 12 days ago)

Hate to ask after reading through FAQ, but I'm not entirely sure if my mush is contaminated. There are no signs of other coloured mold, but on some of the vermaculite there appears to be a raindbow tint colour, it's on very little, it might even just be the lighting in the room, also it seems to be growing.. but not that fast in the terranium, it's been about a week and a half since it was cold-shocked, there is noticable growth, but i fear it is not enough, also there is a hint of a sour smell when i lift the glass off the terranium, other than that it all looks okay, don't have a cam so no pics! but should i just let it keep growing and see what happens?

Well the shinyness is characteristic of verm, but i would say if its growing and its not white mycelium...it must be contam, but if its not jumping to other cakes...maybe not... Smell isnt good either..perhaps others can give a better idea.

Remove or cover that area in baking soda. Doesn't sound good if there is a sour smell to it. I would think if it was just the lighting in the room it wouldn't be growing.

not sure really... all i can say is i use a coarser vermiculte and there are occasional chunks of... shiny fishscale looking pieces that have somewhat of a multi-color tint to them. although they dont grow on me haha. as for the smell i have no clue. i've read that theres some kinda bacteria has somewhat of a noticeable apple smell or something... i think.
