Tiny brown spot at bottom of PF cake
    #4425676 - 07/19/05 11:39 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Greetings and salutations!

A couple weeks ago I started my very first batch of mushrooms with the PF Tek. Sure enough mycelium started to grow and I was very happy. But last week I noticed a **tiny** brown spot -- about the size of 1 grain of coarse ground vermiculite -- on the bottom edge of some of my jars. They were so tiny that I couldn't even be sure whether they were new or had been there all along and I'd just not yet looked close enough to notice.

Since they were (1) so tiny, (2) right at the very bottom corner of the jar, and (3) some of the spots were right in the middle of a big healthy-looking patch of mycelium, I supposed they might not be anything to worry about, but being a cautious bee (okay paranoid SOB) I separated the jars and decided to wait a bit to see if they grow. Now, a week later, the spots are still just as tiny as ever.

Sorry, I don't have access to a digital camera, so I can't post a picture. Once again, they are TEENY TINY spots of very dark brown right at the bottom corner of the jar (not on the flat surface of the bottom, but at the corner between the wall and the bottom). Has anyone ever seen anything like this? Am I okay or should I just write off this first try and start all over again?

Thanks very much for your time!

They are very dark so i don't think it's just a spec with no flour.

Have patience :wink: .
If the spot doesn't grow, you're probably ok ...
