What is this???? PICS
    #944717 - 10/09/02 07:55 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

This shit started showing up on my cakes and I don?t know what it is. There is white fluffy shit on top and the cakes are turning greyish blueish. Is it a contam, are my cakes too dry, or what? I birthed my cakes about 10 days ago and have had them in my terrarium with a cool mist humidifier going. The cheap humidity gauge I have goes up to 90% then just says HI and I have kept it where it says HI. The temp. has been kept around 75F. I also put a little peroxide in the water like it said in one of the techs. I hope the pics help and I hope someone can help me.

Hard to tell from the pics, but I think it looks okay. I would wait a few more days and after that I am sure there will be no question if it is a contam or not. :smile:

Did you dunk/cold shock your cakes?

The "white fluffy shit" on top is okay. Looks like primordia forming. From the look of the pics, you should be fine. As to the grey/blue, it just looks like bluing, but keep an eye on it. I can't really say for sure that it's not a contam. Just wait it out a bit.

No I haven't dunked them or anything. They have just been in the terrarium. The white fluffy stuff came up first then the tops turned blue and now they are blueish greyish. Should I try dunking or just let them sit a little while longer?

Might not be a bad idea. Usually after 10 days you would see more "fluffy" myc growth on the cake.

Have you given any thoughts about crumbling it in some poo maybe?

What do you do with the poo after you crumble it in it? Put it in the terr? Sounds like it would stink up my house.

After you crumble the cake on top of the poo, give it a couple sprays of 1%-3% Peroxide to Spring Water cover the container with plastic wrap or tin foil, poke a few holes in the cover and put in the incubator. Give it a week or so to colonize the poo. Maybe case it with 50/50 or something after in colonizes. Put it back into your fruiting area and wait it out. This adds more time to your cause but it will be worth it in the end.  :grin: There is a much more in depth answer to this question in the FAQ so you might want to check it out if you haven't already.  :cool:

take a good smell of it. That should give you a good indication if your cake is good or not.

If you know what you are smelling....

The cake needs to be hydrated from the looks of the pic.

Well, I'm not sure about you, but I can smell the difference between a pleasant earthy smell, and a ungodly terrible rotting smell.

Yes I can, but I was speaking about the person who originally posted this question. And it doesn't always have an "ungodly terrible rotting smell" when there is a contam.  :smirk:

There is no bad smell. I think they may be drying out. Where is the dunk tech? I read it once but I can't find it again.

From your description it sounds as though your cakes are drying out. You should consider adding some perlite to your fruiting chamber. Humidifiers can be unreliable.
