Is this contam or myc piss?
    #2431358 - 03/14/04 03:08 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

My muppet had a rye mycobag colonizing quite well, until some green mold (looked like trych) took over a few loose grains that were close to the filter patch. None of it looked like it was on the main mass of rye, which was mostly colonized anyway. To play it safe though he took the main mass out of the myco bag and removed anything that was near the green stuff and sprayed it down with h20+h2o2. After a few weeks there isn't any green mold, but some yellowey stuff has appeared, and it smells kinda strong. It doesn't seem to spread or have any pattern of growth, and the myc is growing over it, but if its a contam this will become a outdoor patch. Anyone know what this is?

:confused:and what would you be circling?

Metabolic waste looks yellow to orange and usually apears in little beads. I see it when colonization temperature are too high, when the grain is over colonized or in the rarer case, when there is not enough air exchange.

If there is just a little bit of this don't worry about it. However, if there is quite a bit, enough to make a whole section of mycelium turn yellow (where the bead was to big and "poped"), this can cause problems as metabolic waste is acid, which favours bacterial growth.

You say after a few weeks, which was after most of the grain was already colonize, sounds like it really needs to be fruited soon.

Yeap, probably mycelium waste but it's hard to tell. What about the extent of the yellow stuff, is it also growing in other places rather than the removed section ?
