3 little black dots
    #2287025 - 01/30/04 02:12 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

long story short, a friend was birthing his 4 cakes and noticed a few TINY little black dots on 2 cakes, thinking oh shit he rubbed it with a towel and it rubbed off! now i know this is bad, but what he noticed was it looked -EXACTLY- like cube spores! it was a light purple/brown (he actually used an entire spore print in one syringes, and ONE syringe for the 4 jars....so hes thinking maybe it was just a clump of spores? or would they have grown...?

Really tough to say. It could be a mold that was stunted by all the healthy mycelium around it. The practical answer should reveal itself very quickly; keep an eye on that bad boy!

in either case, if it doesnt grow would it be safe to remove the dots? (and later break open the cake to make sure the inside isnt screwed)

It really depends what those dots were, and if your substrate was 100% colonized when you wiped the dots off. When were you planning on breaking it open? You are most likely going to want to break it up and perhaps case afterwords if you crumble it when you break it up. If you are waiting for it to get to 100% colonization after wiping those black dots off, then you have probably already introduced more contams then the "black dots". Good luck man, and definitely keep an eye on it.
