    I just did some reflasking this weekend and threw out one flask with contamination with a red fungus. I had read your post but did not remember to take a photo.
    If I get any with comtamination this week I'll post some pix for you next weekend.

    Wow a red fungus?!... That sounds cool because usual Penicillium/Aspergillus colonies are gray/black/bluish... em... But uncool for your flask... Sorry to hear that... I'm going to start sowing some seed... I pollinated my phal today... Long road to go...
    Good Luck...
