Possible contam
    #3841439 - 02/27/05 03:36 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

the cakes on the left and right in this pic seem to be real fucked up. i hav three out of seven of my cakes messed up like this. i think this was because there used to be too much water in the chamber, and there was alot of water condensing on some cakes. now that it has a happy level of humidity, alot of the cakes are pinning, but im wondering do these cakes have a mold that can spread to the other cakes, or what?

Mold can easily spread inside the terrarium. Therefore, if you spot some contaminated cake, you should take it out and place it inside another terrarium or toss it.
In you particular case, what makes you thing the cakes are contaminated ?
Another question, is it the first flush ?

This is my first flush.
I thought there was contam because the cakes had discoloration and myc formation much different than the 4 that were brilliant white with pretty even fluffy myc.
They are pinning near the bottom of the cake today, so i guess they are fine.

They are probably fine, just keep checking that discoloration and report back if it grows.
Those mycelium clumps are probably a reaction to the change on the Rh level.
Btw, welcome to the shroomery :smile: .
