Pink residue on South Americans
    #2380543 - 02/26/04 07:18 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

A friend is incubating some south americans right now, and i don't think they're contaminated, 95% sure. All the jars of south americans have a faint pink hue to the mycelium, but none of the other two dozen jars show any color. I'm thinking its just some sort of biproduct of the myceliums metabolism. Has anyone had a similiar experience with south americans?

Most by-products of mycellium is yellowish. Ive never seen anything being a light pink hue before. Maybe it could just be from a certain dye that was added to whatever kind of substrate your using? Are you using grain? BRF? MAybe some red dye from a sticker or something that was red accidently fell in your mixture and leached into your mix, especialy during the pasturization part aka sterilization.......But it could also very well be a contam, there is one contam called lipstic mold.....mold comes in just about every shade in the colour spectrum.....if it is a contam, i couldnt help you cuz Ive never really had to deal with it, especialy red contams, never had it, and hope I never get it!

Anyone else know of a faint red contam?

using rye grain, i don't think any stickers or dye leaked in. Whats strange to me is that all the south americans have it, but none of the other 24. it could be mold i suppose, i haven't ruled out that possibility. But the pink only appears on existing mycelium, it doesn't colinize the grain on its own. I'll try to get a pic in the days to come.

btw, the other 24 are not south american, just to clarify.

sounds like the contam might've been in the syringe with which you innoculated the SAmericans...IF it is, indeed, a contam....
