slime and mold????
    #2693928 - 05/18/04 12:37 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

ok

I was taking my cakes out of my chamber to prepare to dunk when i discovered a couple scary things:






the first image is of a gelatinous translucent jelly that I discovered under one of the cakes. The second image is what looks like blue bruising or possible mold??? Both of these afflictions were found on the bottoms of the cakes and appear nowhere else on the cakes...

if these look contaminated to anyone, what should I do?..are the cakes a write-off, and what about the shrooms I've already cultivated from the cakes and dries - can they still be eaten?

:sad:

I don't think you should consider eating the black ones.  Good rule of thumb to not eat the black ones :wink:
On a positive note, it really doesn't look like contamination to me. . .Two questions though:  Were they placed directly on wet perlite?  Was there anything like peroxide or bleach in the wet perlite? The gelatinous stuff might just be waterlogged, I've seen that before.  Is it possible they were sitting in a puddle?  The black is worrysome.  It looks like extreme oxidation, but could very well be a bacterial infection.  Either way, the best way to go is to pitch those funky parts and [perhaps] let the cake try again.  Peroxy-dunk beforehand might be a good idea.   
I think if the previous mushrooms looked fine, they're probably fine.

the cakes were sitting directly on tin foil which quite possible was wet - so waterlogged could be very possible.

The black one is actually more of a dark blue. all the cakes seemed to have it on the bottom but this one in the picture was the worst of them all - could it also be because it was wet that the blue bruising might appear darker?

About the first cake, i believe it's contaminated, that gelatinous jelly looks too alien to me.

ok - my main question is: can I still eat the harvested shrooms?

First cake, no.
Second cake, maybe. It depends on how it develops.

you can eat the shroom off a contamed cake as long as the contam wasnt on the shroom.

That's wrong. It depends on the kind or specie of the contaminant. Toxins are carried through the mycelium network to non contaminated areas and they can be very dangerous. My advice is not to eat anything from the first cake.
