Question on Black Pin Mold
    #932302 - 10/04/02 04:58 PM (18 years, 11 months ago)

one of my jars is completely colonized,
but there are spots on it...
they appear to be right on the inside of the glass
tiny flecks of black, that at first i thought were clumps left over from
the spore syringes, but i really don't know
there seems to be more of it than when i first noticed, but again, its such a small amount, i dunno.
the cakes are completely white, colonization is almost done
i don't have a camera to post pics.... could someone do me a favor
and post some pics of black pin mold for me?
it really doesn't look like a contam, and it doesn't seem like its getting into the cake... just on the inside of the glass...
it doesn't look like the black pin mold i saw in that contam pic post,
i'm not taking any chances
does black pin mold smell?
any tests or things i can check for?

THANKS MOFOS

are you sure it's not vermiculite? sometimes as the cake colonizes and shrinks in size, verm from the top 1/4" will fall to the sides

ok, conflicting replies
these "spots" havn't changed since i first posted this
they don't look like anything in the bag of vermiculite
very tiny flecks, it doesn't look like it's colonizing anything
kinda looks like the specks are stuck on some myc.
like so many flies in a spiderweb
the pics of black pin mold i've seen look like black spots all in the substrate
can anyone give me clear pics, or clear advice? :P

black pin mold (Rhizopus) does smell. I can't describe the smell, but it is very distinct odor. I think you will definitaly notice an odd odor if it is black pin. Black pin mold also spreads fast so watch out. don't open that jar anywhere near your other cakes or jars.

In jars I've never seen an infection take hold directly on mycelium in a colonized patch of substrate. The only contams I've seen took hold on uncolonized areas.

don't do anything!!!!!! just wait it out and see if it spreads.. if it spreads it's a contam... if it doesn't it is just spore deposits from your syringe... that happens a lot! I used to always get black dots on my pf cakes when I used syringes with a heavy load of spores.

it very well could be spores

I noticed a series of small, seemingly perfectly circular specs of dark green/blue/black appear in the past six hours since my last fanning.  Now, I may have an explination why this occured...the previous time I fanned my cakes, I sprayed a little Lysol in the general area, but accidently sprayed a a mist directly above the cakes, which seemed to settle on the top of them.  Is it possible the Lysol caused them to bruise, or casued a reaction with the mycelium to make it change colors?  The discoloration seems to be isolated strictly to the top of the cakes, which I hope means it was purely the Lysol and my ignorance.  Any feedback is appriceated as always, because "i r noob kthx  :grin:"

I had the same prob too. I thought it was a contam at first but let my cakes keep growin and it never changed. It is, in my guess, just the black part of the vermiculite. If it were mold, it would have grown and gotten bigger, and you can tell when it's a mold, cause it colonizes as well, like your myc. but just another color.
