Orangish Yellow Contam? ~Picture~
    #1598069 - 06/01/03 08:37 PM (19 years, 8 months ago)

Cakes were birthed 6 days ago. Humidity is around 90% and the myc seems to be growing like crazy. But I do have this weird coloration on three of the cakes. It looks to be a light yellow with a orangish tint. Contams? Piss? Anyone? Thanks!

I can't tell you if that's a contam or not (some signs can show up later, so time will tell) but if it isn't, it could be piss or dried mycelium.
I bet on the last issue, cakes need to be highly hydrated, you have to up those Rh levels to at least 95%.

Right now I'm hand spraying with the typical pf terrarium setup and it's a bitch trying to keep the humidity up and the cakes just seem like they might be getting dry. Do you think perlite is the way to go?

put a bowl or two with 10% h202 + 90% h20 inside of your tarrarium

Switched to perlite from the hand spraying and added some h202 to the water and humidity climbed to 100% overnight. Things are look goooood! The orange tint seems to be fading and being eaten up with the white frosty goodness. Thanks for the suggestions!  :grin:
