HELP! what is this???
    #4154342 - 05/09/05 07:24 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

so i'm new to the forum and to growing. i inoculated 6 jars 8 days ago, and they seem to be doing alright, except for there are red spots in 2 of the jars. they are small and have been there for about 2 days. i took some pictures.

it looks like one of the jars also has some contam growing in the top... maybe cobweb mold? there are little black specks.

so here are the pictures. does anyone know what this is? should i be worried? toss em?

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

The first two pics look almost like a pink mold. The lower right sections of the cake look like they have a pinkish hue. How do they really look?

it's blood red colored. turns out that the other jar,the one i didn't take pictures of just started growing green mold around it's red spot. i'm pretty close to throwing them both out.

I've got a few jars still in the incubation process and I noticed that they have some rusty colored brown spots almost red. I assumed that it was odd colored mycelium urine, could this be your problem? if not then I myself may have a problem.
