Cake problem. Please help.
    #3849490 - 03/01/05 12:11 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Can somebody please try to diagnose the following problem, I am at a complete loss:

Half pint jars filled with brown rice, vermiculite, and popcorn. Birthed into a 5 gallon tank covered in tin foil with an inch of water and an inch and a half of perlite. Airtight cover over the top and flourescent light fixture above tank. Cakes were colonized in 85* and birhted into tank at 75*.

The problem came on day 2 ,after birthing the cakes, when the mycelium puffed out from the cake like a big ball of cotton and ,later on, turned black underneath the layer of fluffy mycelium.Oddly, the mycelium on the inside of the cakes was perfectly fine.WOuld this type of thing happen because of too much humidity or too high of temperatures? Any help would be great.

black? are you sure it wasnt a very dark blue (bruising) ?
ive never heard of anything like that (apart from flat out mold which usually attacks from inside out after birth but w/e)...also if you had a flush of shrooms the spores could look blackish etc.

try rubbing it with a tissue, if it rubs off its mold and should be thrown out...be careful around that shit too

I know you don't want to hear this:When in doubt throw it out.
If its black mold do not breath.VERY bad for you.  GL

WOuld the mold be due to my choice of cakes? Corn and rice?

Also, if it is bruising, how do I avoid doing that next time?
