Purple Possibilities?
    #972320 - 10/18/02 03:15 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I got some purple tinge on my cakes. It doesnt look too offensive or smell funny, but is purple on the cake a common thing? I thought mabie it was similar to the blueing effect. any feedback would be good.

If it is purple and not blue, it could be 'fusarium', a contamination which can be very toxic.
If it is fusarium, do not smell the cakes, do not touch them, just get rid of them.
Fusarium is one of the more dangerous contaminations found in mushroom cultivation.
Rubber gloves and dust mask!!

Good luck

Dustmask and rubber gloves, do not hesitate, get rid of them now.
Wash the terrarium out with bleach. Again wear gloves and a dustmask.
That is propbably fusarium, as I said before, it can be one of the more toxic contaminations.
Do not smell them. Do not touch the mould with bare hands.

The purple/violet mould could be fusarium poae or Fusarium moniliforme.
Look here:

Good luck

Scary stuff. From the site:
    The trichothecenes fusarium can produce are potent inhibitors of DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis, and have been well studied in animal models because of concern about their potential misuse as agents of biological warfare, due to their ability to destroy human health, alter DNA, and affect the mind.
Not something to play around with...

Peace

Let me just say that this is a good example of why we need the contam forum, if for nothing else.

I'm damn glad I thought of the idea. YAY ME!
