How are these doing? Contaminated? w/pics
    #4543614 - 08/16/05 09:21 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Does anybody see any problems with these cakes? Or are they healthy?
The first 3 pics Im wondering if some of them are molding and the last pic Im worried about that orange color on the cakes.


Also is is alright to have them on aluminum foil? Ive noticed some of the mycelia has spread onto the foil.

Thanks for any help.

.... what the hell! those are wierd ass cakes, did you dunk and roll with perlite or something? and it doesnt look like the bottom right hand corner in the last pic is fully colonised, i definitly wouldnt of birthed it like that, most people cut the uncolonised parts off if they cant wait any longer.

Im not an expert but all i know is that the tinfoil is ok if the mycelium spreads onto it thats grand.... the rest id leave up to the experts... whats your humidity at? do you have a bubbler or just perlite, how much do you fan?

Its just perlite. I fan and mist atleast twice a day. I know that that one cake was not fully colonized but it stopped and was like that for over a week so I figured it wasnt going to colonize anymore and put it in. Although a week ago I had to leave for a few days because of work and I do not think the two people I left in charge sprayed or fanned them.

eesh you shouldnt have put an uncolonised cake in there... your cakes look odd but i don't know if its a contamination. I don't doubt that the uncolonised one will contam though, followed by the others in there with it.

Some thing seems wrong man. Your shrooms will more then likely be small. They don't know where to go, lol left, right, up, down. They should ALL be going UP. This is from some one I know. I like the way it looks, so I took some pics.

No contamination that I see. But you see where the cakes are puffing up? That's from a high CO2 count in the tetarrium. Exchange the air more and after this flush use the double end casing tek with vermiculite as well. You're not getting the most out of your cakes without some casing material.

Sorry for the delay. Here are some pictures. I dont like how the caps on some look black. Are they ok? Plus how does that last one look. The cap was not golden like it should have been.
