When do you know that your cake is fully colonized? I want to make sure it is fully done before I sat it in indirect light outside of my incubator. Another question has anyone seen purple mold before? Wondering if one of my cakes is contam. or if this purple coloring sometimes happens. Thanl you and Peace.

look at the bottom of the jar, and make sure you don't see any substrate left. The purple could be a bruise, but it is probably a contam

"I like cigarettes, Miss Taggart. I like to think of fire held in a man's hand. Fire, a dangerous force, tamed at his fingertips. I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking. I wonder what great things have come alive from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

Wait until all visible spots are completely colonized, then give it a day or two after that to ensure the mycelium has run through.

If the purple you're describing looks anything like this, you have a contamination.

Thank You.
