saving infected jars???
    #593926 - 03/30/02 08:39 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

has anybody tried saving infected jars before?
I know that bacteria and stuff can be toxic, but is it possible to transplant unninfected parts of the cake? I am getting rather frustrated with waiting for the jars to colonize, and before they are completed, little spots of green or red start to appear. can i cut these out and keep going??
any thoughts would be much appreciated.

From what I understand, no. But it doesn't hurt (once infected) to experiment as
you suggested. Of course you should take caution as to where you put that cake.
Don't compromise your healthy cakes by putting it in the same terrarium. Sterilize
a sharp knife. Put on some rubber gloves (the kind used for cleaning etc.), pour
rubbing alcohol on them, rub it all over the gloves and let dry, peform the surgery,
and quarantine the infected cake in it's own fruiting terrarium. Check your tek though.
Obviously, something's wrong.

The problems I've had with slow colonization are largely
temperature related. You want at least 80 degrees in
the incubation area.

But it sounds like you have another problem, so
check your tek and make adjustments.

I recommend tossing contaminated jars in the trash without opening them. If you want to save the jars for reuse, resterilize them before you open them. There are several types of contamination which can cause sickness or death. If you don't know what it is, get rid of it...your health isn't worth the risks.

ok, has anyone ever come across a fungi that can make the mushrooms grow really big??? its a green fungi, rather smelly, it started growing from the food, not the mycilia and did not attack the mycilia. the first crop of shrooms was exceptionally large compared to the same type grown at same time, but without infection. I realise that shrooms grow at different sizes but these are super shrooms!!! Are there any type of fungi that anyone knows of that can make shrooms grow better????
