Contam... EEK What is this ??? (pic)
    #3639242 - 01/17/05 03:44 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)



This stuff took over fast. it was not noticed the day before the pictures were taken, while i was messing with the air hose (green).
it was growing on perlite, plastic, the hose/airline, and geolite.
everything is in process of being sterlized for restart.
can anyone clue me in to what it is? i havent seen it referenced anywhere, and am curious about any environmental changed could keep it at bay in the future. Thanks.

Ps. humidity was at 98% and air circulation was not happining for a few days due to clog in a bubble tube. temps steady at 75F.

Some H2O2 in the water will prevent most of that stuff.

I wanted to dig this one back up and see if anyone knows what the hell it is...


--------------------
Excerpt from one of my textbooks:
Therefore, between a then and its matching else, there cannot be an if statement without an else. Statements must be distinguished between those that are matched and those that are unmatched, where unmatched statements are else-less ifs and all other statements are matched.
I wonder if that would make more sense if I was tripping when I read it.

i trashed everything and bleached everything down. after awhile a few casings went in everything was fine till about 2 weeks ago it came back, on the edge of a casing where it had shrank away from the wall and i hadnt put more casing in. i drizzled hydrogen peroxide (not mixed down) down that area just enough to soak that small area. it was only about a square inch that they were growing in. than i watered with a hydo perox (mixed down with water, but not as much as normal) above the area on top of the case so it would soak in from behind tward the edge it was growing on.
than i watered the entire case with hydo perox

it hasnt returned.

im sure it will someday. ive also had black wisker mold as a friend.
not a nice friend. anyhow- if i see that weirdness again, how can i grow it out to see what it is without killing anyone-
i mean, it could be anything--- right?

more pics from same time as first pic. this will possibly help with identification as it shows alot of how it can grow...

this pic is the drippings of the side of a casing that was in a transparent container, and i had to pull it out, flip it, and place it in a larger container because shrooms were growing from the bottom.
it is growing on small chunks of perlite, the little chunks that roll out from between the cracks. there is a small flake of vermiculite in the pic, it looks huge. it isn't. anyhow...

i love the way it grows in star burst formations. i was so curious to see what would happen if i let it go. in the casing area they grew clustered and a non-translucent dry dusty tan color. I'm assuming the ones growing on the red grorocks had unlimited access to liquid, thus are freakishly white and semi translucent. 


anyhow, a couple casings spored all over the farking place in my humidity tent, and I'm thinking whatever it was was growing and using the spores for food.


why do i think they were growing on the spores?
how nutritious is red plastic?

or tubing?



:eek:  what is it???? 
this is the closest i got... 112k


there was a moment when i believed they were all tiny shrooms.  :grin:

I vote for some kind of slime mold. . .This pic is from Tom Volk's great site, fungus of the month, june '99 :smile:  Check out picture 'b':

http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/june99.html



Googling around, found this site with an interesting description of some food sources:

http://encarta.msn.com/media_461535816/Sporangia_of_Plasmodial_Slime_Mold.html

The plasmodial slime mold is a mucouslike plant that creeps along slowly in leaf litter or over decaying logs. This primitive organism feeds on bacteria, fungal spores, yeast cells, and decaying plant and animal matter by engulfing the food much like an amoeba engulfs its prey. The plasmodium is primarily a feeding stage. Under the right conditions, it transforms into a reproductive stage, producing tiny, stalked, spherical structures called sporangia, which eventually split open to release spores.

From this site, there's a pic that looks a lot like your little friend:

Sweet!  Sorry for the persistent contam, but thanks for sharing the pics!
