Possible Contam
    #384220 - 09/02/01 11:38 PM (17 years, 4 months ago)

This is my first post so go easy on me, I made a huge mistake of buying a kit from mushroommagic.com 60 dollars for stuff that i could have picked up myself for 20 or less...I'm a newbie and this is my first attempt...anywho everything started out ok..but the humidity was WAY too high and the mycelium was looking like puffy cottony stuff all over the top of the substrate material...so I decided to fan it..well the top and sides of the terrarium were covered in water droplets..I tried to remove the lid as slow as possible to prevent water from dropping down on top but to my dismay it got all over it...when I looked into the terrarium some of the mycelium looked yellowish/orange and by that was some blueish/green stuff...I know that yellow means too high humidity which I have and i know the blueing is normal as well...but I didnt see any of this while the lid was on...could the water dropping down on top of it cause to to turn yellow and blue that fast?

watter droplets fall off of my terrrarium lid and strike my cakes all the time with no noticeable ill effects. white fluffy stuff is usually okay. blue stuff not a big tragedy, but green is bad. yellow is an indication that moisture and humidity is too high, so fanning may help. also carefully wipe up excess condensate from walls of terrarium, which in turn will reduce the moisture/humididy level by default.
