this turned out to be an interesting contam. it came from a wild print. the plate was inoculated only two days ago. the pink slime is taking over fast. you can almost se it growing.

Just curious: did you prepare your agar using yeast?

i think that is just regular mea from mycosupply, but it could be an mea/pda mix. i didn't add any yeast to it.

why?

Fast-growing, snot-like. . .I'd bet on Bacillus. It varies a lot from isolate to isolate, and can be quite pretty. Not what you're looking for, but kinda cool.

>i didn't add any yeast to it.

This used to happen to me in the past when I didn?t sterilize the agar long enough, or I didn?t add the yeast early enough in the process.

Then the yeast survided the perssure cooking)amazing, I know) and created exactly the patterns like you have now.

I know it was yeast cause I opened the dish and the contamination smelled and had the same appearance like yeast.

that is interesting that yeast can survive pressure cooking.

i'm not going to open this dish to smell it, though. like stuntzu said, it's probably bacillus.


i was pretty sure this one would contaminate, but i wanted to give it a shot anyway. i had some prints laying around on the kitchen counter for a week and thought it would fun to grow these wild mushrooms indoors and see if the morphology changed any.
