Black Cakes
    #2323066 - 02/11/04 02:00 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Last night i was giving my 6 cakes some light, and they all looked perfect, about 75% colonized.

Then this afternoon, about 14 hours after i last looked at them, i pulled them all out to check again. One cake looked completely fucked.

It usually has the brown/golden verm and brf against the side, but in all the areas that the verm had been the night before, the verm looked like it was ash colored and all black! looks so damn nasty haha :frown:

whats up with my baby?

Bit hard to tell without pics I'm afraid, for instance it may have been bruised but we won't be able to tell without seeing a pic.

If the substrate has turned dark it might be bacteria. One thing is for sure your baby is probably going to be going the way of the garden or the bin pretty soon.

More description would help greatly though, is it a more wet looking black, is it slimey.. etc etc

Any strange smell ?
Anyway, only time will tell. It's difficult without a pic you know ...

ya i took a pic, but my camera has shitty closeup, more of a landscape cam. the first pic im going to post is what the verm/brf normally looks like, and then the second pic is of the contam one. the contam actually is a black with ash color.

a good representation of it would be you have brown wood, throw it in ur fire place, then after it burns out, its a black log with ash covering it. the wood = verm/brf and the burt log is this contam... looks really nast, and i tried smelling but it didnt smell like anything.

I'd try the way of an optimist and bury it in the garden, not too deep, just enough to cover the top, unless it's freezing out, which means it prolly won't make it.
