Musty/sock smell in terrarium on fully colonizied cakes
    #1916625 - 09/14/03 10:48 PM (14 years, 12 days ago)

This chick I know birthed some fully colonized creeper cakes. When they were birhted she said that they smelled fine with the classic mushroomy smell. Its been about 4 days now and the terrarium is starting to get a musty type of odor but she said everything looks fine so far. Where could this smell be coming from? She has her cakes in a 10 gallon fish tank with the cakes sitting directly on the perlite. She said she done this a bunch of times before and hasnt had any real problems yet. What could it be?

I had a strange stagnant smelling in my terrarium  :mad2:, and after driving me crazy for a while  :nut:, I discovered that it was the sylicone sealer. I knew everything was allright with the cakes cause when I fanned manually the pleasent mushroom smell appeared  :thumbup:. Of course, I don?t use the terrarium anymore cause some of the mushrooms that grew inside tasted like that smell.

She fans 5 to 6 times a day with a small power fan. When fanned she can smell a hint of the mushroomy smell. its really driving her crazy because the cakes are starting to get hyphel knots and all. I'll have to tell her to check into the silicon theroy. But why would that be the cause? She always used the same terrarium with no problems..!!??

If the flush is poor, you should suspect about something.
I don't know about your fanning procedure, a bubbler would be the best option but if you can't get one, waving with a piece of cardboard would do just fine. Fan a little bit less when all pins begin to develop.

ok heres an update. She just discovered some green mold near the bottom of one of the cakes. It got tossed. Hopefully that was it. She'll just have to wait and see.

Just like you said, wait and see.
If you get more green you should clean all the growing area.
