WBS cake contam HELP!!! (pics)
    #4245555 - 06/01/05 08:57 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hi guys, I am really new to this. I have successfully grown one pf cake and now have inoculated WBS in Rubbermaid disposable plastic containers. Only 3 of the containers made it as their lids are type 4 plastic and I did not know this until after I PC'd them. I did let the WBS - pennington brand, sit for 12 hours. I now have 3 fully colonized cakes and I have a picture wondering if this is a contam? I think I might be cobweb but I am not sure. I actually just did put a casing layer over the top about an hour ago. Anyways here is a picture I hope it works

It looks like some of it has a greenish hue, and that solid patch in the middle looks suspicious. Is that stuff actually green?

I do not think that it has a greenish hue... The darker patches are where the millet- or sunflower seeds are. I put another picture hopefully this will help... Thanks for the quick reply  :laugh:

looks like you have got something besides myc there, maybe cobweb, its likely. some of the myc actually attached to the foil.
peace

Looks ok to me, at least not like cobweb. The more solid white stuff near the middle of the second pic is confusing. That's polyfill in the Al foil, not mycelium.

Thanks for the replies. I am still not sure what it is. I guess I am going to see what happens with the casing material, 60/40 verm/coco. I really hope these are not contaminated...

yeah looks like a contam to me. keep an eye on that. if it turns green or grows incredibly fast then youve got a contam for sure

no green, that I can see, but it does have somewhat of a sweet smell to it compared to the two other cakes. I Dont know what to do. I think I may just tosss the one I think is contamed.

People, if you're using foil to cover the casing, don't forget to wipe it first thoroughly with a cotton piece soaked with alcohol.
