Contam identification...ADVICE NEEDED!!!!
    #1806356 - 08/12/03 05:42 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Colonizing 6 cubensis cakes, 2 have emerged with this curved line at the top seperating the mycellium from the dry vermiculite. The first devoloped about 4 days ago and hasnt grown whatsoever. It is a light beige line outline in an off-white that continues untill it hits the verm, about 3-4 mm tops. Ill try and get some pics...but what is it? Can I save the cakes in some way?

Sorry for the newbie questions...but heres a couple more that are very important to me..thanks

1)My core group of friends go seperate ways in about a 8 days, my cakes (1/2 pint, cubensis, PF tek) are about 2 days away from birthing imo, can i pull enough mushies off 4 (6 if those arent contams) in time enough for all of us (7) to experience one last hard trip?

Thanks to all those who reply.

Growth has stalled for some reason, try untaping the inoculation holes and flip the jars, that way you'll have a better air exchange and faster colonization. There's also the possibility of contamination, pics would help.
8 days to pull up pinning and mature mushrooms is difficult to achieve if you don't get pins right after birthing the cakes but it's perfectly possible. 4 cakes for 7 people is not much to get a hard trip, anyway it depends on how many mushrooms you'll get from the cakes.

Thanks so much for the advice man, I'm gonna try and follow your advice.  All of the jars except one have completely colonized, visually speaking, from the outside.  Being that my innoc holes (4) are evenly spaced between the rim and the center of the jars, how long before i birth the cake? Oh and i will be ummm..dont know what its called, placing them in the fridge for twelve hours unless anyone advises against it.

Thanks you for the help

P.S.  Would i be better off cutting the cakes in half to try and get a better yeild off those 4 cakes, or leaving them as is, any advice accepted with great appreciation :heartpump: :smile:

When it's 100% colonized.

It's a good idea to promote pinning. Do it before birthing the jars.

You could crumble the cakes and make some casings but that depends on your experience. You can leave the cakes as they are, that's a safe bet.

If you cold shock and dunk MAYBE you'll get somewhat of a flush, I personally don't think so but trying never hurts (unless you try to hurt yourself jk :smile:
