PF Cake Mold Operation Performed: **Update**
    #562731 - 02/25/02 03:05 PM (21 years, 9 months ago)

Hey there,
I'm new to growing, so I don't really have all that much experience... anyhow
This morning I noticed a greenish/brownish area at the bottom of my glass (which is already covered in mycelium except for the bottom), and under closer observation, the substrate around it was quite wet.
This lead me to believe that mold was growing, so I dumped the glass over and with a sterile razor blade removed the chunk of mold and some of the area surrounding it. I then applied rougly 1/2 cc of spore solution to the open area and replaced the glass over the cake.
Now I have left the glass and the cake upside down and replaced it into my incubation box.
Please let me know what you think will come of my little experiment, and if I was totally stupid to expose uncolonized substrate to air, even if for only a few minutes.


The cake seems to be doing fine back in the jar... pinning has occured rather unexpectedly, I suppose from checking it every day for about 5 minutes...? Well, about 25% of the bottom (rougly 7% of the entire SA of the cake) remains to be colonized, then, happy birthday!

Moral of the story - reinoculation at post-operation exposed spots helped me out in this case, but mabye only becuase i caught the mold the day it showed. Good luck, whatever situation you are in!

I don't think you'll have any problems.

Good luck!

I had a cake that was like 90% colonized and just out of nowhere I saw some brownish shit on the bottom so rather than throw it out I broke it up cut out the contam part and cased the remains. I just put it in the incubator last night so we'll see what happens.

Santa's not the only one with a bag this year.
