My cakes are covered in what looks like shaving cream?
    #1643040 - 06/19/03 12:08 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

My cakes are covered in what looks like shaving cream? How is this happening? I have been growing shrooms for years and I have never had problems to this magnitude. Everyone of my jars have clumpy white looks like shaving cream on them. I used the same jars that I have used in the past. Could that be a problem? The lids were a little rusty. And I boiled them(jars and lids) for hours before I used the jars. Could it be my spores? I didnt frigerate them when I got them I just stuck them in my closet. Could that be a factor?

i think thats a sign of a healthy cake. a picture would help, but it sounds like mycelium that grows off cakes when humidity and air exchange are close to perfect.

If that's contamination it should turn green in a couple of days.

well its been over a week and 1/2 and they are not turning green but there is nothing sprouting. Like I said I have grown lots of shrooms and have never seen my cakes look like this? I even tried cold shocking them by putting them in the frig for 24hrs. And they colonized really fast which when my cakes had colonized this fast before I had cobweb!

I am also having this problem. The cakes were dunked an cold shocked 3 days ago. Now in the fruiting chamber pure white mycocelium like "shaving cream" is growing on the cakes and there are no visible pins. I have fruited cakes with this setup before with no problems and there are no obvious contamination problems with this set of cakes. Unless this is something...

The strain I am growing is Lipa yai... Though this strain seems quite tempermental so I may switch to equadors soon...
