Grey contam
    #4230228 - 05/28/05 04:19 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hi, i'm a newb and in my first batch of PF jars, only one got contaminated so far. I wondered what contaminant it was but i couldn't find a fitting description in the FAQ. Maybe someone could help me.

The contamination formed black dots at the edge of the mycelium and all the substrate turned an uniform grey. Anyone have an idea of what it could be? Sorry i can't give pics, i don't have access to a digital camera.

Sounds like cobweb mold. There is a great write up on contams somewhere around here take a look around if interested in further information.

Well, i've seen pics of cobweb mold and it didn't look like that.

The weirdest thing is how the verm/BRF turned grey. Nothing visible grew on it, it just turned grey.

Same thing is happening to one of my jars of verm/brf. It has this little spot of grey.. it's wierd. I don't know whether to isolate it or not. I have it with 5 other jars in a TiT at 86 degrees
