One of my cakes recently grew a section of contam less than a square inch big, near the bottom of the cake (this cake happened to be dunked without any h2o2 and later rested directly on the perlite...I did something slightly different with each cake since this is my first grow). This contam looks...well, more 'velvety' than the myc and appears to be a dark gray (although it could possible be a shade of green, I have odd light in the storing area.
I put this cake in its own mini terranium to prevent spread. It has not grown noticably in the last 20 hours. Unfortunately, I do not have a pic. I know I may not get help this way, but if anyone can tell me what this contam may be by description, and if the cake may live on to produce non-dealy mushrooms...I would appreciate it a lot.
Feel free to ask more questions, I will try to describe as best as possible.
Its been a couple days now, no increase/decrease in the size of the area.
Anyone think this velvet looking grayish/green contam will hurt the shrooms? The contaminated area is near the bottom, so it prob wouldn't hinder the mushroom growth...provided that the cake fruits with the contam there.
