Yellow crap metabolic waste?
    #328938 - 05/29/01 04:28 PM (22 years, 3 months ago)

On my fastest growing pint cakes, it looks like the mycelium took a shit and grew around it. I've heard that in some cases, mycelium leaves a yellowish stuff behind as metabolic waste. Do I have to throw out my best jars, or is it okay?

Nothing of what I say is a personal matter. All cultivation questions are on behalf of counterparts who risk growing. I take no responsibility in being the messenger.

It sounds like mold to me too. But you can leave them and see what happens. My friend put once 3 jars in a casing and one had some yellow and another some green mold. He just took it and I think the mycelium fought the rest of the mold. You can give the mushrooms a second chance! Who knows? But be carefull not to touch anything else!!!!! AND STERILIZE EVERYTHING!

I see trees of green, psylocibe mushrooms too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

stoned strangers don't give good advice..If it's liquid and it's yellow and it's in your jar, that's normal. Don't worry about it at all. As you said, it's the metabolic waste given off from the mycelium. Try using less water in your substrate next time, but just slightly less.

If mycelium is growing around part of your substrate and there is a yellow spot there than more than likely it some kind of contaminate. The reason I posted here is because I just thrown out 5 pint jars that was partly contaminated and it was a yellow stinky mess when I was throwing them away. It was more than metabolic waste. I think someone saying it is fine without actually seeing it might be giving you bad advice. I used to much water in my substrate before and yes I did have a yellow looking water on the bottom and on the sides but it colonized completly and it did not have nasty smell a bacterial infection. I hope azure is right but when you birth it take a smell and see.
good luck

if the cake has been already fully colonized you don't have to be feared : yellow drops are metabolic wastes (but it means that you 've kept the cakes for too much time in the same glass).
when the mycelium becomes too old ,it often produces these exudates !
if you feel fruity or rotten smells and uncolonized grains appear greasy...yes! they're bacteria.

peace
