Orange discoloration -Contam??
    #696023 - 06/23/02 11:58 AM (16 years, 1 day ago)

4 out of 7 pf cakes are begining to show a orange discolor on the mycelium about a week after birth. The 4 cakes with the orange color are growing a lot slower then the other 3 cakes. There are no bad odors coming off the cakes.....perlite is used as a humidifier and have been misting with a part water/lime solution. Has anyone experienced this. Could the orange color just be staining from rust in the tap water?

I`ve got the same discolorisation.
But mine has seen no difference in fruiting speed.
I`ve got pins starting to form as well.
When I initially birthed the cake it had a few orange rust spots.
I wasn't concerned and continued with the fruiting process.
I observed aggressive mycelium growth on the cake.
The orange spots eventually just grew off with the growing mycelium like I expected.
As the mycelium grew it slowly started to discolour, due to the fact that I misted the air with a slight bleach content I`m assuming.
Now the cake has started pinning everywhere but at the same time it seems as though the few rust spots have returned, everything looks perfectly healthy and deffinately no bad smells.
Everything has been sterile and clean.
Even the orange areas seem to rather be a return rust occurence, I`m going to continue to watch the cake.

Derrayld and out of control

I noticed an orange spot forming on the mycelium growth as well. I am hoping it'll be fine because it's underneath the casing and in the straw layer. I am starting to fruit in a few days. Wish me luck!
