Testing LC is This Contamination?
    #22603085 - 12/02/15 09:54 AM (5 years, 3 months ago)

I'm trying to test a LC sent to me by a shroomery member. I put some on PDA. Tried to get some decent pics, but they aren't so great. I hope they are good enough to get an id from someone. It looks like maybe bacteria? It's supposed to be Pleurotus.

The slime and the shape of the colonies makes me think so.

Yeast and molds look different but contams are hard to ID.

There is at least bacteria present.

I tossed them. I noticed a distinct smell of mold coming from them. How in the heck could the smell get out of the petri!? I had parafilm around it. Maybe the parafilm was not tight? I hope nothing escaped from them!

Parafilm allows gases to pass through so any volatile metabolites can permeate through slowly. You will be fine :thumbup:

It freaked me out. Anyone that grows mushrooms, hates that smell.

I've decided to Inoculate some rye berries with the LC. I'll grow it out and see what the contamination is, so if I see it on agar again, I might be able to better identify it.

And here is what we have so far. Yeast? Definitely contaminated anyway. I guess this is why it's a good idea to test your LCs. Hope this helps someone. I will let it go for a little longer, get a few more pics, and toss it. Great learning experience!

:whathesaid: definitely yeast, maybe you could do a smear to clean it up on agar? I think it would be easier to get more LC to be honest.

Nah. I wasn't too worried about it. It was some type of Pleurotus, supposedly. I didn't give anything for it, really. I sent someone an edible print not expecting anything in return, but he sent me this anyway. I have other Pleurotus to use. I just wanted the experience of seeing something on agar, and then seeing what it turned into on grain. Good to have the experience.
