rusty looking contam
    #4387023 - 07/09/05 04:35 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I just checked the bottom of my casing trying to fruit it as a cake because I say pins at the bottom, and to my suprise the bottom layer is like rusty red. Looks nasty, but everything else seems fine. Shrooms are still growin, but I have no idea how long this things been around. Whaddya say? Chuck it?

Is it on metal? Are you sure it isn't actual rust? It's very rare for mushrooms to form on a contaminated cake or casing. Usually the contaminant stops mushroom development.

could it just be a color formed by the mycelium and coir layer?

It might be lipstick mold, how bad is that stuff in terms of health, fruits, sporulation and etc. I need to know if I need to clean out my terarrium again, which sucks.
