Amazingly helpful (and unnerving) index, especially useful are the pics of various contaminants. This must have taken months to put together. Fantastic work!

I must admit, though, I'm a little confused by this paragraph:

"Overlay - A common sign of Trichoderma is mycelium that colonizes over a casing layer or the vermiculite fruiting PF cakes have been rolled in. While mycelium can also create overlay, if your fruiting conditions have been adequate to prevent it, this can be one of the first signs you notice."

I'd love some clarification if and when you have the time or inclination.

Again, beautiful work! Thank you!

Great write up! And yes I agree with the guy up top, unnerving as well.

I found some weird spot in my BRF cake, i don't know can you tell me whats going on with this pictures.. today is 19 day after inoculation (koh samui, ms syringe) and everything looks great, but this spot!.. i can tell for sure nothing is growing there (for now) it looks like a bit wet and maybe missing some brown rice flour, but I'm 80% sure that wasn't there few days ago.. also those in picture that looks like black dots in that area isn't black dots but holes in verm/brf mixture.. also i steam sterilized 9 jars for 2 hours... all doing great... and this is 277ml jar if that's important..

Thanks for pointing that out. In part it's confusing because I meant to upload some better pictures later but I also rewrote it so it makes more sense. Basically what I meant is when you notice mycelium growing over parts of the substrate you normally don't see it growing particularly in comparison with identically made substrates. When you have an actual casing layer you normally aim for it to not be colonized, and to mostly have rhizomorphs growing through it but then suddenly there's this patch growing over it and...

just made a liquid culture with honey, took my old liquid culture which has proven success and a lot of it.
but I'm quite new to lc, I know it's bad, but why not take the challenge.

my problems are, mycelium doesn't really float, more like dingle to the bottom..
I have kind of frisbee made of mycelium, which floats and looks like something I could pour out of an old bottle of milk..

it came from a clean culture, should I dump?
or just add some absinth, put on my pirate wood leg, chuck it and yell at the neighbors?

Hey yall,

I did  not want to create another thread since it appears many people have posted on this thread for help in identifying potential contamination. I am currently harvesting some fruit, but I noticed a few spots on a variety of cakes that are giving me some concern. I took some photos, and if I did this right they should load. If you could provide any assistance in letting me know if it could be something, or if I am just being over cautious it would be greatly appreciated!:cool:

Thanks for any help, and much love to you all!

It's just mycelium caused by the higher Co2 levels near the substrate and blue bruising from the substrate drying out.

What I wanna know is, is everything we call trich actually trich? Or is most of it actually penicillin and we just can't tell the difference?

Hey guys, newb cultivator here.. This started and has been growing for like a week on the side of my container.. Do you think it's the aerial rhyzomorphs or something more serious? It's in strands and seem to grow upwards.
