Pinning problems, possible contam
    #2307361 - 02/06/04 01:41 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

AFOAF birthed his first cake (Puerto Rican) into a perlite terrarium one week ago. After a few days, this cake seemed to form some hyphal knots (they are small little twisty mycelium nubbins coming .25 cm off cake surface). These knots have net turned into pins yet though, even thought they've been there for several days. Is something wrong?

Even more concerning, the cake, which has not been touched, has a very slight bluish/green discoloration on the top. Is this a contam? If so can this small area be scraped away or is the entire cake shot? Thanks for the advice.

well if they have not gotten any larger then they may be aborts... and the blue green color is probably just bruising... everything sounds about normal just give it time... time usually works...




I have not touched the cake at all. I thought in order to bruise it must be touched...can it bruise itself though?

Yes it can, mostly due to environmental stress.
