Yellow Growth on Bottom of Cakes
    #1579230 - 05/26/03 08:32 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

My friend's last two attempts at growing mushrooms have both fallen victim to the same contamination. It is of a yellowish color and is only forming on the bottom of the cakes. Could this possibly mean there is just too much water gathering at the bottom of the jars? Is this actually a contamination? Is there any way of curing this problem? It has happened to every single jar in each of his last two batches, same exact color and all ONLY on the bottom of the jars...... Any help would be appreciated.

Yellow is usually piss if the mycelium looks fine. When you birthed them last time what happened? Or did you just destroy them?

What do you mean what happened to them? What is piss? does this mean they are still ok?

It looks like dry/old mycelium at top.
The cake it's not fully colonized, something is not good, what happened ?

I just learned this myself, but light yellow growth is nothing to worry about. It's just excrement and won't do any harm. From my experiences, the white mycelium will just grow right over it. So don't throw it out, but if you want to careful just in case, put it into fruiting separately.
