Contaminated?
    #25297476 - 06/28/18 07:18 PM (2 years, 10 months ago)

Hey All!

I am new to the cultivation scene and have a concern about on of the bags I am using. The inoculation process with the rye berries went well, no contamination or discoloration as far as I could tell. After About 5 days in the substrate, I noticed a yellowish color on the top layer of one of the bags. Is this normal or contaminated.


Thanks in advance,


John

Yellow is usually not a good color for cube mycelium.....any pics by chance?

Still new to this and can't figure out how to display the image but it let me put a link to it via the site. There is a link atthe bottom of the initial post now.


Thank you!

Is this it?? If so, it looks like metabolite mixed in with the mycelium...not a kill, but definitely watch it.

Yes, that's the photo. Alright, the other bag may be heading this direction too. I really appreciate your input!

I wouldn't get too worried unless that uncolonized area never colonizes, then I would suspect bacteria which that might be the case if your getting metabolites around it.

Bacterial can still produce fruits anyway.
