Does anyone have PICTURES of this mold anywhere? If so, I think everyone would want to see that...

Yes, if anyone has any pictures of this contam, please please post it. While we are freaking out over this, I could use a better description of this contam..
Is this contam both pink and purple? pinkish purple, purpley pinkish? Are they dull, bright, or what? Does it appear as it's own growth area, or does mycelium simply take on that color? Im concerned, because one of my cakes has some blues that could be purple, but the mycelium is simply that color in a few spots which leads me to think i may have just bruised the cake, or maybe my H2O2 solution was too strong. Any thoughts?
If someone has seen this contam, can you please make a color-sample image in photoshop or paintshot so we can see just what color this contam is. I think making a picture would be better than a color description.

Thanks to all, peace, and take care.

Well, this is the best i could do in the form of an adobe color sample... and this is only what my jars looked like.  But for me, my mycelium grew fine and after a few days the first few jars became contaminated with little pink dots on top of the mycelium on the sides of the jar.  It seemed to envelop some small bits of BRF or vermiculite because it was all in little dots of different sizes and the colors ranged from light pink to dark pinkish/purple.  On two of my twelve jars it appeared as a pinkish haze over the mycelium but later formed the little dots. 



That's pretty much how the purple was dispersed throughout the mycelium's surface.  By the way, I also used the Sporechick's syringe and had let all my jars sit dormant for two weeks before innoculation to test for any would-be contams and no signs appeared.  O well, 1st time down the drain... but it wasn't really my fault right :wink:.  Bit dissapointed but not discouraged.  Only thing is... I can't bare to throw out the only other syringe I have (which is from sporechicks).

hey doc, could the bacerial meningitis be spread if you didn't dispose of it correctly? I wouldn't want the stuff sitting in my house, but i wouldnt want someone else to contract it by NO fault of their own and with NO idea of how they'd gotten it.

My head is hurting..

My thanks to you! well im a bit more at ease now.

I experimented with soaked wild rice in a few of my jars and noticed the cake has a slight, very very slight pinkish hue to it. I am assuming that this may have to do with colours leaching out of the wild rice husks (dark purple/black). I am also reassured by the appearance of primordia prior to birthing. Im hoping things stay ok. If any of you think that my assumptions are incorrect, PLEASE let me know.

Thanks and peace to all,

i inoculated my jars 10 days ago (PF TEK). IN THE BEGINNING mycelium was white but after 5 days from inoculation it turned from white to white-pink (like a facial powder for women). (the same in each of my jars) - new mycelium grows white but after some time gets pink as well - what to do ? mycelium still grows

How old are your syringes and where did you order from? This pink contamination actually colors(pink/purple) the condensation in the jars and appears as little dots of pink on the mycelium\BRF itself. If you have the same contam from the SporeChicks fiasco then your jars are doomed. They may fully colonize but they will never fruit even when birthed. The evil pink will get progressively worse towards full colonization. If you have a digi-cam post a pic. I can tell you in a second from a decent pic if it's the same type of contam.

Ok, yes i am new here, first time posting but have visited many times... i got 'ringes from sporeworks, and my jars colonized fine, and now on the second flush or so i see this foookin crap that looks like whomever said powery-womens-makeup... its mostly just on the tops of a few cakes, but has begun to travel down the sides of some, and some of the fruits are getting coated in it... i knew that it wasn't good, so i am currently losing like 1 of 5 fruits... i flush them down the toilet (LOL DEAL W/THAT, SANITATION DEPARTMENT!!), so my question is this...
If i put on my full hazmat gear, and scrape the pink fluffy "mineral powder" pink makeup shiet off my cakes, then use my crem brulet torch and fry the fook outta the cakes where the pink stuff was at... will it come back??

PS--this stuff NEVER was in the jars, it showed up 6 months into my farming, on batch 2, and seems to love the puerto ricans but is also on a few B+ and hawaiian cakes.... i'll take a picture, but only if someone really knows their funGis... dun wana post digi pics w/out getting the metadata out of them first... PLEASE "PM" me or email me or post here if you can help a semi-rookie shaman that does not want his parents, cats, girlfriend, friends, UPS man, etc to DIE cause of me... i called my dr and said i found this shiet outside and am getting a Rx of anti-biotics tonight, so i want to dawn my hazmat gear and go to town on my precious closet kiddies with the torch, but want advise on that 1st.... Great_Cthulhu i will try to contact you via email in case you dont hang here anymore....

Thanks all,

FREEE JAH MINDS!!!

No pictures, no ID. 

This thread has been dead for 7 years.  I'm sure if you search the contamination faq, you'll find similar pictures to what you're seeing.

Sounds like you have bigger problems than just the contams.

If you are so worried about your own safety and the safety of others then throw the shit out and start over.

Really hot tea may kill the contam but probably won't breakdown any toxins that may be present. You could still get sick.

Once again, throw the shit out.

Hi there people!

I was looking for pictures of Neurospora on Agar; Because i have a "thing" on my homemade PDA-Agar that looks strange and wanted a confirmation.
It's mycelium from P.cubensis B+ on homemade PDA

Searched the forum for neurospora but didn't found any picture, except the ones here: What-are-common-contaminants-of-the-mushroom-culture

So, i'll post the pics from my contams that look similar to Neurospora, IMHO.
Can you confirm it's Neurospora?













*Sorry for replying to such and old post, but didn't found another topic that fitted better.

This sounds serious. I recently had brown rice vermicukite jars come up with a purple tint in small areas in my jars 6 days after inoculation. Does this sound like the safer purple mold to you?

sorry i know this is a old thread, but i thought these pictures of my agar dishes were relevant to this discussion.

i have yet to have this contam identified.

That is bacteria, not a mold. Unfortunately IDK which specific type, but it is definitely bacteria. Fusarium, the mold which causes the issues in the OP is not bacteria.
