mycelium fighting contam!?!?
    #1853801 - 08/27/03 03:47 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Well one of my pf style jars has a green mold growing on em which seems the mycelium is putting up a fight. But I was just wondering if they completely take over the contam is it still ok to birth this cake? or will it just not be healthy to eat them if I do birth em? If somebody with some knowledge with contams can help me that would be great. Thanks

The contam can contiune to grow inside the substrate, and you dont know this untill you break up the cake.

If you have more jars, its best to isolate the contaminated one, or
even just give up on it.

Why does putting contaminated cakes outside make them okay?

because when you burry them under ground, conditions change such as heat and air, these are a major factor in the way molds grow...most of the time, fungi will deal with these conditions, and live on while the molds and bacteria die off

ok so I just ran into this comment. So wouldnt it be valid to put contaminated stuff in like a refrigerator, mycelium will live on. Make sense?

Because everything lives in harmony outdoors and each lifeform finds its own niche. We don't use sterile procedure indoors to protect ourselves, as is commonly thought by new growers. We use sterile procedure indoors to protect our mycelium, because we're growing under artifical conditions.

No, because molds and bacteria will live in the refrigerator too. Ever leave cheese or meat in the fridge too long?
