Purple Contamination
    #4200068 - 05/20/05 04:42 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hi! I originally sterilized, and inoculated a group of glasses on May 11th I did 4 small drinking glass ~200ml, and 1 medium glass ~350ml. I had a small amount of BRF/Verm leftover so I decided to try and grow inside a ziploc bag. I placed the material in the bag, and sterilized it like the rest. 90 minutes steaming in a pot. I followed the, "PF-Tek for Simple Minds," today I finally saw some real nice rhyzo growth so I pulled out two glasses and take some pictures, I also pulled out the experimental ziploc grow, which had some ny mycelium growth. However, on close investigation i noticed the base of the cake had a large purple area. VERY deep purple. I'm not worried about losing it, since it was extra, and I didn't expect it to work.

The exact procedures I used were:
-put brf/verm mix in bag. I pushed it towards 1 corner making a cone shape.
-sat in steam for 90 minutes
-pulled out and cooled, directly stuck innoc needle into side through ziploc. (it used up last bit of syringe)
-placed the whole bag inside a second ziploc bag, both bags were zippered shut.

well I haven't destroyed it yet, but it is seperated from my good jars. Since it seems unknown I'll let it keep going and see how it reacts with the mycelium. Maybe even do a culture.

I did more searching of the forums... the only thing that came up often for purple coloring, during incubation was Fusarium...

The stuff sounds bad, so I opened the outer ziploc and sprayed about 2tsp of lysol into it. I also direct injected some H2O2 into the purple area of the inner bag with a syringe.

I'll see what happens to the purple area over the next day, I'm still hoping it was just some rot from some water collecting at the base of the cone shaped cake.

Appears to be a strain of Neurospora or Penicillium. The contaminate spores from Neurospora are a headache to get rid of.
