little green on a cake
    #377788 - 08/24/01 02:56 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

Of two cakes that were in my terrarium, I just tossed one in the ground because it turned green all over the top overnight. The other had a small, nickel-siez area with a tinge of green. I dabbed it off with a q-tip soaked in saltwater, and here's what I have left:

Do you think the cake is worth carrying on with? I am frustrated to have not yet succeeded in growing a shroom!
Does it look like it can still pin?

Just hold onto it for a few days and see if the green comes back. It probably will but it can't hurt to just wait and see considering you don't have any other cakes in the chamber.

It looks like you had a nice cake going if that contam hadn't got ahold of it.

Can I ask you how come you only had 2 cakes in your chamber? Is that all you are doing at a time? If so I would suggest that you bump up the number to at least six. That way if you lose one to contamination it's no big deal.

Karen-
Thanks for responding. I started with 5 cakes because that is how many jars will fit in my PC at one time!
I am doing a little experiment- 1 is in a mini casing with some white poking through in a few places now, another I am doing invitro, and I tossed #5 because of a strong winey smell.
These all started from a wild spore print. I saw in another post that using a wild spore print is much harder than started with a strain that has been growing inside for some generations.
That true?

Yes very much so...it is a lot harder to get them to pin is my understanding. Also the flushes are not nearly as even or large. You are lucky you got as much as you did considering that they could likely be contaminated coming from the wild.

I don't know much about using wild prints except pretty much what you said....it's a lot harder. Usually what happens is our fantastic spore vendors work on domesticating them and release future generations of them.

Err.. not good.. buy some 3% hydrogen peroxide.. pour it over the cake. h2o2 kills contaminates .. admittedly though, it does stun the mycelium for a bit. better than tossing though
