Contaminated cakes that fruited
    #2940550 - 07/29/04 02:37 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Long story short, Im currently in the middle of a grow proj. using standard pf formula cakes etc. THe exciting thing is, that I have had two contaminated jars(green and cobweb mold) from my current batch so far. Instead of throwing them away, I dug out the contaminated part, and put the healthy looking mycelia in a little hole in the ground and covered them up with wood multch, nothing more was done. The first was about a 1/3 pint worth of mycelia and so far it has flushed 2-3 times, I collected 23(three clusters of 6-7 smaller ones) off the first flush. The second, about 1/4 pint of mycelia is flushing right now with what looks like 5 big ones. I buried them about 4"in deep with no added substrate, figuring that if a mush can grow in the wild where I live, no reason to think that these hardy amazonians can't. Avg. time to 1st flush was about 2 weeks. My point in writing this is that if an indoor experiment fails, you can still look forward to outdoor success (local environment permitting).

I'm glad to know it worked. :smile:
Just to know, what kind of environment had the chosen area ?
