Purple discoloration. Please help
« on: August 07, 2012, 08:49:07 PM »

Hey, so a friend of mine has some cakes colonizing that appear to be creating a purple discoloration in the mycelium. they're about 2.5-3 weeks in and im afraid it might be some sort of mold. we could only find very little info on the web and what it had to say was that it was just active components degrading naturally and its nothing to worry about. but i just want some more info on it. Its a very faint light purple discoloration that looks somewhat fuzzy. its not all over the cakes just in spots. What is this and is it safe to continue with fruiting or does he need to toss it out.
