A few questions.....
    #2883075 - 07/12/04 07:40 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I am fruting some cakes in an aquarium with damp perlite on the bottom. How long can the perlite be used for and when should it be changed? I have some more jars that are ready and I am not sure if I should put them in or not....or wait and change the perlite...

One of my cakes got contaminated and the others are fine and I got some pretty good mushies from them. Then I have one that only grows tiny toothpick size mushrooms, weird....can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong that one got contaminated and the other is growing wack mushrooms?

Perlite is pretty contamination resistant, provided you keep it clear of anything for the contams to eat. I'd say pour a bit of H2O2 in there and then put your other cakes in.

As to the contaminated cake....shit happens. Mebbe it was contaminated from the inside, n just showed up? Postmortems are key to determine possible vectors.
And mebbe the other cake is a lil bit water deficient? Mebbe too much verm/not enough flour in it? (possible if you're mixing a goodly amount of cakes at once....ratios can get screwed up at the bottom of the batch)

If you're intent on saving it, look into the water replenishment straw bit....but it might also be contaminated on the interior.

I'd say break apart the contaminated cake (somewhere away from the fruiting chamber, preferably outside...) Might give you a better idea as to what's going on.

Hope this helps.

This may be a little late, but post-mortem refers to what is basically an autopsy.
Break it up, see if it was internally contaminated. If it was, then you know where it came from. If it wasn't you have a much better idea where it came from. A good way to determine which part of your procedure introduced the contamination.
No procedure is perfect.

And the straw bit is a faq located in the growing mushrooms section. I trust you can take the time to find it.
