Orange?

I`ve got some jars of Cambodians with a rust colored contamination. I believe it came with the syringe as the P.E.S.A.'s colonizing along side them are fine. Anyway, have any of you guys seen this before? It doesn`t seem too aggressive, the mycelia is winning the race. Still, what is this?

sounds like you either got some rust from the top of your lids dripping in , or mushroom excriment(they give it off sometime in supernutritious environments), or something entirely different! mushrooms are so fun! :wink:

My friend noticed the same with a batch of cambos he just did. Where did you get the spores from? Is the texture of it like almost a grainy red dust that someone blew on to it? Kinda weird looking?

Better description of what my friend encountered:
Looks like small tan specks all over substrate. Not isolated specks but almost like someone coated the substrate with tan sand or dust. Only seems to be in innoc areas. In some spots the mycellium and unknown stuff seem to blend into each other.

Someone help! Are they contaminated? If so can he save the mycellium that is starting to bloom? At the very least try to save and try to put outdoors? He showed me one jar that had that shit in it and on the other side of the jar was amazing rhizomorphic growth. Almost like thick roots instead of fluff, we must save the fungi!

AW? I got the same thing in one little spot on pda. It wasn't at all aggressive here either. I still have it as a matter of fact, because I wanted to get it identified. I just sectored out some of the good shit into a peroxidated mea plate and saved the other.

I wish I could tell you what it is, but I just recently ran into it too, and all I've had up until now is Trich. I would really like to know if we should be more concerned about it than I am.

Btw, looks like an alien booger to me.

That`s the stuff, magnusra. Got them from JLF, but they buy from a vendor.

Has anyone been able to get a harvest after this shit hits? It has one of my friends jars BAD! Like the size of 2 or 3 quarters. Do any of your jars smell?

I was just going to do a search on rust colored spots before you posted this. Similar problem here in 2 of 6 Hawaiin jars. They appeared overnight. The spots are very small, and appear to actually be rust or bronze colored. They are both colonizing at normal rates though, and the spots dont seem to be growing much larger. ????????? Any help?????

Someone has got to know here? I hate to bump this back up but my friend really needs help. And I think they got bigger in my friends I really didn't see but I'll ask him. Thanks in advance..

I have heard that it could be cryptococcus fungus. I am not certain though. Does anyone have any pics of this or any further info?

If you're incubating at 80+ degrees, Cryptococcus [neoformans anway] should be in it's 'yeast-stage' and will be more of a mucoid, bacteria-looking colony. So if this thing looks genuinely 'dusty' and mold-like, I think you can rule out crypto; it's generally thought of as a yeast.
I'd be extremely surprised if you got a Cryptococcus. You don't want Cryptococcus neoformans. Inhalation of the yeast phase [i.e. dumping substrate out of your jars] is the major vector for infection, and systemic fungal infections are amongst the nastiest diseases around. Fortunately, a healthy immune system should protect most people. There's a lot of research into Cryptococcus as it is becoming quite relevant to AIDS patients, however.

Many molds are impossible to ID without some type of quick-DNA sequencing. And they're definitely impossible to identify just based on color, though I have seen some Paecilomyces that had a rusty color to them. About half of the environmental molds you can identify by using 400X-1000X magnification, and cryptococcus will require additional tests.
There are SO many possibilities of what this thing could be, if the cubies take it over, I wouldn't worry about it unless you think you may have severe mold allergies. Others will say pitch it now.

If I still had my old job I'd have someone mail me the mold for ID. :P

The above information was received from my friend in Holland. First person accounts are a result of cut-and-paste

Thanks suntzu (Like the name by the way, amazing philosopher). Yea they are incubating at about 80-85 and 97% RH. And it definietely looks dusty. There are some areas that look slightly moist but I think that is due to the moisture. Although in the areas that appear more moist it takes on a slightly lighter color.

Yea I've read about cyrpto it lives and breeds in your nervous system especially brain and spinal fluid, nasty. But I also doubt that is what it is. It seems a little too rare to all-of-a-sudden pop up in such quantities in an environment like that with minimal exposure.

But you would definitely say from my description that it is a mold and not bacterial? Also if this helps. I remember seeing a very similar looking (Could be the same) stuff all over some of my aunts house plants. She now only has like 2 plants but the ones where I do remember seeing it were in my room. They are gone now though. But I also didn't innoc in that room and used the oven tek for innoc. But I will examine the remaining plants and compare. Thanks suntzu you a big help!

Update
Definitely mold. I used a magnifying glass and saw the minute mushroom like fruiting bodies. The color ranges from rusty brown to yellowish tan. Mcyellium continues to outpace it in terms of colonizing but a few jars are real bad. The stuff on my aunts plants is also confirmed as a mold and looks very similar. This mold is only on the potting soil though not on plants. Are they the same?
