I got two jars I inoculated couple of weeks ago that have this very thick and white mycelium . I'm wondering what this red spot is and how should I proceed with these two jars. The other jar doesn't have the red spot as big and dense as this. Jars have myscelium piss already but are not 100% colonized...just about there. I was planning to birth these after they began to pin but now I'm wondering if I should birth/dunk them, unless this is some kind of contam. The mysc. is about 1.5mm thick on some spots, first time I see this.

This stuff is on the jar's lid and the alu. foil. too. I was thinking it was rust that transferred into the jar?

Looks like the mycelium is producing metabolites to kill a contaminant. Unless someone else thinks differently and has advice , I would ride it out till whatever inevitable conclusion it comes to. Or simply may be rust.

Red is a bad color. Could be contaminant that's actually dangerous to you. Dispose of carefully.

Good to know! I've seen it in agar before.

Thx, to the trash it went. I think it was Cinnamon Brown Mold Chromelosporium fulva. I'm concerned about other jars from this batch that do not show this contam. but they're wet from myc. piss and about 90+ colonized. Any thoughts.

Actually, healthy P. Tampanensis forms reddish brown veins right where a stone is about to appear, especially on BRF cakes. Some of the other stone producers do, too, but the Tampanensis especially.

Other than that, yeah, red bad. Red real bad. Unless it's a redhead. When a redhead is pretty...don't get me started.

That looks like pink oyster myc. If it is, you are ok. If not, no bueno. Very toxic.
