The Hell Is This?
    #3693946 - 01/28/05 05:07 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Here is a picture of my BRF cake on moist perlite. What is this black stuff around my cake? It is kinda shiny looking, but my mushrooms are still growing. Is this a contaminant? Is there anyway to save this cake? Please help. Thanks, Chronic

Most likely spore deposits if so they'll wipe right off.

These can't be spore deposits, this is my first flush from the cake. It is also appearing in another part of the perlite. You don't think there is any reason to worry though? Thanks for your help, Chronic

New Pic: Don't know if its any better..



Well, I guess it could be spore deposits from that open mushroom, but there is some black stuff of the perlite in the corner of my terrarium also. Confused... Thanks, Chronic

Corner of Terrarium:



It is much lighter here, but it is still turning gray. And I did not use h2o2.

i see a slight purple tint to the pic of perlite so im guessing spores. see if it wipes off of the mushie, then it is definatly spores.

Looks like your cake is right on the perlite. I'd get a lid under there.

looks like spores to me. I end up with spores covering the roof of my closet...they can and do and will go EVERYWHERE. If it looks purplish at all or appeared at the time the cap opened you can rest assured. They can look VERY black too...

Also use H2O2 in your water when adding to your perlite otherwise you will definitely have contam problems! GL

Hydrogen Peroxide. Brown bottle, white cap usually. Comes in "3%" and "%6" solutions. %3 is the stuff you are looking for - and it's mostly what you are going to find. Cheap. Sold at drug stores and grocery stores and a whole hoast of other places. Legal, safe, medical grade antibacterial agent. Enjoy

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.
