Re: bright colored spots
    #26660 - 08/02/00 04:16 PM (16 years, 7 months ago)

Based on a fictional story. :smile:

Something similar happened to me (and I need advice about it too).

There was quite a lot of condensation in one of my jars. I looked at one spot in one of my MMGG3.2 jars and saw thin whisps of mycellium starting to cover a large clump of water on the outside of the jar. Hours later I check and the mycellium had gotten significantly thicker, though started turning yellow. Now, about a day later, the mycellium is really thick in that spot but is a dark yellow colour with a little red tint?

Is this just severe water damage?

since it's almost the cakes birthday when I pull it out could I just smell the spot and know what it is?

I'd say contams. I'd toss them just in case.

My cake finished colonizing today.

I took it out of the jar. The yellow area (with a pink hue) had to distinguishable smell. I dabbed it with H2O2, which made it turn darker pink (almost red). Then I decided to cut it out with a flame sterilized knife. The redness didn't seem to go beyond the surface area.

Added H2O2 to the gash I made in the side of the cake, more pink appeared after this :smile:

Flamed the wound.


since I've never got to this stage, I birthed the cake anyway into a poor man's terrarium, am heat, air and light shocking it now.

now a few questions.

Will the spores off any mushrooms that grow be okay to use? (I'm out of store bought innoculant and I want to ensure that I have spores, just in case).

Since there's prolly no way to find out if that stuff was contam or just really bad water damage (the area didn't seem to "grow" over 3 days), can I safely *extract* the psiloc(yb)in for use?

Thanks.

Kid
