A couple of my jars have developed yellow coloring in the growth. It's a pale yellowish orangish splotch of mycelium.If amyone can help explain if this is a contam or normal coloring, I would be very grateful.

Sounds like mycelial waste to me, which is normal. Watch it in case it grows but it shouldn't.

It's around 82 degrees. Is that to high? I was going to move them to a cooler closet in my house as soon as they were fully colonized, should I move them now?

from the water damage and waste?! Whats that? Remember Hip, my jars on the bottomb layer in the PC took in some water. There are some saturation areas where the myceliun stoped- so far as I can tell. Here are some pics 1234

saturated areas that the mycelium stops abruptly.
However in one jar the mycelium continues to grow on the other side (2nd pic). The last pic is of a jar with no saturation spots visible and it's the most yellow of them all. Could this be water damage from the water waste? and what is that? I suppose I should look it up in the archives....can't wait for the mycoCD. Thanks for any feedback, and i'll look up the water waste issue tommorow.

I just had this problem with some test runs I did for Ryche. I was incubating at 80 - 82, and its humid here at this time of year. This time of year one only needs to room incubate jars depending on where you live. The humidity is so high in the summer.

Some of the orange can turn pink, I removed from incubator to room temp (73 deg) then also removed the lids only allowing the verm layer exposed. I did this for a few days then placed the lids back on but loosely.

I would only do what I did if you get to about 60% colonization, that way the uppermost is more resistant to contams.

Hope this helps.

Loosen the lids and flip em upside down... give em a week or so before ya toss em.
