Contam or bruising? (pics)
    #2418628 - 03/11/04 11:22 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

This cake got a kind of blue/green patch on one side. As far as I can tell, it didn't expand after it first appeared.

It was birthed into a makeshift terrarium, and within a day it was completely covered with nice white mycelium.

I could see that either way, to be honest. This is where 'when in doubt, throw it out' might come into play.

One thing, does it appear to get bigger? It also might be the pic, was the light such that the questionable area was in a shadow?

Either way, it's not the best. . .personally, I wouldn't want to risk spreading a potential mold around. Let's check some other opinions.

Thanks for the answers.

As far as I can tell, it didn't spread. After I birthed it, the area in question was quickly covered with white mycelium. Here's the cake from the same angle, 24 hours later:



And yeah, the area was in shadow.. really bad photography there.

Anyway, it's just one cake so I'll throw it out.
