    #8787335 - 08/17/08 05:58 PM (9 years, 6 months ago)

Hey,

so these cakes have been birthed for approx 4 or 5 days now. They just started pinning a couple of days ago but im getting worried as this morning i noticed a fair amount of what appears to be contam. is there any way to save them? your the experts...so i thought your the best ones to ask. also what is the possibility of being able to save them with alcohol or peroxide?





cheers and thx

This thread was moved from Mushroom Cultivation.

Reason:
It looks more like bruising, but you'll need to take better pictures of the green area.  I can tell from the fruits that you need more fresh air into your terrarium, and poor air exchange is also a common cause of molds as well.

If the green is a separate layer above the cake, it's likely mold spores.  If the green is simply the color of the mycelium, it's bruising.  I'll move this to the contamination forum.

it is indeed bruising then it wont go away unless you find the cuause.

bruising happens for a few reasons.

handling or touching the mycelium, lack of moisture (usually as a result of low humidity and the cake drying otu). lack of fresh air may cause it too.

make sure that your rh is in the mid to high 90's, fan out your terarium at least 4 times daily misting before you fan.

to check if its contam, whipe the suspect area with something to see if the colour rubs of. it it does its mould spores.
