question from first time grower - should I put these in the pmp? NO PICS
    #4059646 - 04/15/05 06:12 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I don't have a digital camera, so no pictures.

I have two cakes, each presenting a different appearance. I wonder abt both of them.

They're both the same unknown strain - one syringe leaked in transit and the labels faded.

I used the PF tek recipe for the substrate. The first week they were in the tit, the temp was too low. No growth was seen.

I got a heater, and after 2 weeks, both cakes were 100% colonized. Total, ~3 weeks to complete colonization.

Cake A displayed some thing that looked cobwebby but that _looked like it was crowded out by myc growth. I decanted it today, and put it in to dunk. When it was birthed, the area that had looked cobwebby was as solid as the myc parts, but was a lighter color - translucent, rather than the nice white of myc.

The second cake, B, over grew the verm seal. The top verm was covered by white mic-like growth. It was yellowed at the part under the holes in the lid, and was a little weaker there (crumbled on light rinsing before dunking, revealing more myc underneath).
It felt more slippery than the other cakes I had birthed. The slipperiness did not rinse off.

Both are in the fridge in their own containers for a 12 hour dunk.

In my PMP, I have four cakes right now, at various ages. One had more pins than I could ever have hoped for.

Should I throw away A and B? I don't want to risk ruining the four cakes of which I am sure just in a misguided attempt to get more product, but also don't want to waste A and B if they are ok.

I only have one PMP, and can't buy another, so isolation in a pod for questionables is not an option.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you for all the awesome info here.

-Carter

It doesn't really seem like there is anything wrong with your new cakes, except what you said might be cob web. The other cake sounds fine. If you are worried about placing the possible cobb web cake in your PMP, you can rig up a ghetto chamber out of a 2 liter soda bottle. Place your suspect cake in there until you are sure about it. If it is cob web, it'll be back soon so you will know. Good Luck.

Ooooh. Great idea. Thanks. During the dunk, I'll have time to rig the soda bottle chamber.

Cool. Once again, thanks.

Good Luck and you are welcome. I believe there is a TEK around here somewhere that might even show you how to rig up and take care of the bottle.
