Color Question
    #807914 - 08/09/02 09:32 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Im about 16 days in on a 9 jar amazonian grow and colinization is at 8 / 10ths of the jar.

Im now seeing what appears to be a red dust on the nutrient cake it self. It seems to be on only about 3 jars though.

On a couple other jars there is what seems to be a yellow color.

Can anyone identify these colors? Thanks.

If you see red and yellow, those jars are contaminated. Throw them out.

redish is not cool.
GEt some more info on the redish jars!
I'm gonna crash now, figured I'd tell ya yellow colorization in jars is caused by water and is fine.

Does the red area appear to be red flecks or is there considerable growth. If it's just flecks and they appear to be kind of rusty you might be okay. I was worried when I saw that same growth on my cakes but I think in could be the begining of pinheads. I've heard that mycellium sometimes produces a yellow byproduct, so you might be okay with that too. Good luck.
