Rust-Red stuff that seems to be expanding.
    #1641317 - 06/18/03 03:06 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

To make my substrate I used long grain brown rice ground up by a blender. It was not that grainy but still had a few .5 mm sized pieces in, so pretty much it was not flower.

The germination went well. Its now 2 week into the colonizing phase and some mysterious rust-red areas have begun to show up. It is slowly spreading. It is not a solid, just kind of on the edges of the rice powder and air pockets. I was thinking this may just be oxidation or something but I want to be sure. It did not start near the mycelium.

Can anyone help?

It could be rust from the lid, it could be a problem but that's ok.
If it spreads it could mean contamination, toss it in this case.

If you can clearly tell that it's rust from your lids, don't worry about it! Just cut it away later (since it won't spread out anymore.) Although I've heard some one this board who I concider experts (opinion) say that rust is no problem at all! As MAIA said, if it spreads, toss it...

I'm pretty sure that it is lipstick contamination...

It is spreading like a contaminate would and it isnt just on the top part of the jars.

It is not rust for sure because I didnt use any lids, just 3 layers of foil.

that sounds like a similar contam I just found growing in a few jars..it looked like it was only small spots on the outside...but when I broke up the cakes it was pretty much right through...I tossed em and if you break em up and find it thick inside you should do the same
