bottom of cake contam
    #3211502 - 10/03/04 11:32 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

k so Im a newbie and this is my first post. Just began
removing some fully colonized brf jars for a dunk and roll. They seemed perfect until I cleaned the verm. off the bottom. some had a bit of the green devil on them... so I removed the bit and am soaking em individually as to not contam the others. So my question is whether or not the seemingly fine cakes with mold on the very bottom are ok or not. I figured chuck em, but Im not quite sure as they seemed so healthy otherwise. then again I am only a well read, but inexperienced newbie.

thanks for any help

Better safe than sorry, make an outdoor patch. See if you can get some healthy ones that way.

Sterilize a knife and cut the contaminated part off.

by the by is it feasible that they may be ok... so long as I was steril and removed enough of the surrounding region?

I think it should be fine, just be sure that nothing else was contamed and you should be good to go.

if by chance an infected cake went into the terrarium with the rest, would all be infected? I plan on placing possible threats in a seperate terrarium, but Im just curious. If all were infected, would all shrooms be junk?

thanks guys

It could potentially spread, and I think the seperate terrarium is a good idea.  That is what I would do.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

good call silven. definately go with the separate terrarium. the green meanie will make your shroomies unedible. if placed in a terrarium with other perfectly fine cakes, you do have a good chance of it spreading. you did a good thing by using s sterile knife and cutting out out + extra, but put those in solitude and wait for improvement. if you don't see the green come back in say, a week, you should be able to move them to the other terrarium. if you DO see green, toss it.
