pinhead question
    #2660172 - 05/10/04 06:03 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

i have a jar that is 95% colonized (only a very little at bottom not) and it has a mushroom growing. it think this is called primoridia or something any way it looks like it is about to dry up and rot and im wondering if this will contam the cake. if so, can i birth the cake prematurely and rip that boy off or will it fux it all up. also can i still dunk if it is not 100% colonized after i rip it off.

have you tried flipping it upside down? It needs oxygen exchange. I would birth it soon. How long has it been there?

the mushroom has been growing for about a week. it is about an inch long in the stem and the end toward the cap is starting to turn darker. im worried about it rotting before birth. the tip is turning darker and lookin like its shriveling up. can i birth with about a one inch by one inch patch of non colonized substrate? dunk and roll technique still ok??? WHERE ARE YOU WHEN I NEED YOU BUTTERNUT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The mushroom will probably abort. . .it's a tough situation to be in because the mycelium is in fruiting mode, but is not completely colonized. Birthing the cake might actually cause the very bottom to colonize, but it might also expose it to mold contamination. Was the substrate overly wet at the bottom? This might cause the mycelium to halt there, and go into early fruiting mode.
It's hard to say what the best thing is to do. . .It might be a good idea to invert the jar and slam it, trying to slide the cake downward and get an airspace at the bottom. That might allow the mycelium to cover the uncolonized part. Birthing it and hoping for the best might work as well. I wouldn't worry so much about the mushroom contaminating, but it most likely will abort regardless of what you do. Tough call. . .

You should try turning it over, setting the jar on its opposite side will allow it some air exchange. You might get enough colonization in one day to safely birth your cake without it rotting your entire cake and messin it up.

Just to add that this situation normally happens if you expose the jars to light. Make sure you use an incubator which prevents any light from getting inside.
Also, letting the mushroom grow invitro it's not so bad as long as it's growing healthy. It looks like you're running out of time with that one but i'd still flip the jar and wait a couple of days before birthing the cake.
