Lipstick mold
    #4170315 - 05/13/05 12:10 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I wanted to know if it's dangerous.
I have a jar contammed with it, but the mycellium seems to be kicking it's ass.

So, if the mycellium fully colonizes the jar, I wanna case it seperatly to see what happens..

Does anyone know the actual name for lipstick mold?

Lipstick Mold ? Sporendonema purpurescens (Geotrichum candidium)

This fungus colonizes compost or casing. As spores mature, the color of the mold changes from white to pink, to cherry red, and finally to dull orange. It is slow growing. Spores spread in air, during watering, and on pickers. The lipstick mold utilizes certain fats in the compost. It is an uncommon problem. Control is centered around sanitation.

how about this...what if I fruit the cake and take spore prints...there's no chance I'll eat anything from that jar.

Will the spores be any good?

You have a very High chance of getting endospores from the mold contaming the print. the contam its self throws spores, so in theroy the whole jar may already be contamed. Anything that grows may cause health problems if released into the air especially if some get on you and transfer to food or into your lungs. Transfer of the mold to jars is the least of your worries. Dont open the jar, toss it. its always best to just let it go, and start again.

It happens to us all. Heck I've lost whole crops cause I tryed to save one jar. I wouldnt even open the jar to toss it. Jar and all... in the trash.

an ounce of precaution is worth a pound of cure. happy growings!
