Contamination?
    #752647 - 07/17/02 07:56 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

OK, do these sound like contaminated cakes:

First cakes have white foam all over the tops, real fluffy, looks like saliva almost. When I push down on the fluff my finger gets wet. Is that contam or just water getting on my cakes?

Second set, looked like pins on the cake, reddish-amber colored dots on them. When poked the dots are more like a drop of honey or jelly. Same question, is it contam?

Thanks for the help

THe white is probably just excess water on the mycelium. Either your RH is too high or water is dripping from the top of the terrarium onto the cakes, or both... I'd look into that. The red dots are pins, but they shouldn't be so fragile. Sounds like rot because of the excess moisture. You might want to take a piece of tissue or paper towel and GENTLY soak up the excess water from the cakes. Make sure your hands are clean when you do this.

Is the concept of posting a contamination question in the Contamination Forum a difficult one to grasp?


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
