Odd growth.....
    #1003557 - 10/29/02 05:14 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Well, I wasnt sure to put this in the contam forum, or here. I am praying it is not contam, so I put it here.

My sick cat, inocu'd 12 BRF/Verm widmouth 1/2 pints 4 days ago w/ a very vigours amount on strong thick PES HW's honey water.

There is growth in every jar. This odd growth has almost completly colo'd the bottom of every jar. It doesnt look like the web I have had, doesnt look like the bakc mold either, or trich. It doesnt look like the mycel I have had either.

It is more white than grey, but more grey than healthy white. Is this just how germinated spores colo? It is my first batch of em so I am new 2 it. I just dont want anymore contamed jars. And if it is contam, consider the post moved, and consider the jars tossed. I would enjoy any input I can get from ppl that have EXP w/ honey water, and/or PES HW's. (there was only healthy white mycel in the honey water jars, I am sure of that)

And temp has been kept between 76-84F.

As for now I trek to my g/f's for the day, my cat is sick in the hospital w/ a temp of over 106F. So all I need now is 12 jars of contam and my life will B complete.

When I have used liquid cultures to inoculate jars, the growth just looks like normal mycelium. Can you post a pic?

Well, it is day 6.
The growth is still moveing. Not as fast as contams would. I am sure of that.
On advice from an expert. I opened up 1 of the jars for a sniff. And all I could smell is %91 alcohol. So I said fuck it, Xpecially if it is contam.
I poped the cake out and took a nice wiff of the bottom where the growth is.

I couldnt smell anything @ first, Xcept for BRF. But on further sniffs it kind of smelled mushroom'y.
Faint, but it was there.

So now I let em sit for as long as it takes for this to finish.

Does web smell bad? or like anything @ all? Cuz that is my only guess on what it could B.

Now I am seeing mycelin in my future.

I'd do more jars if you have em cuz who knows what'll happen to these......
you could waste weeks waiting for them and in the end they might not even fruit!!  Always have a back up batch i say!  :laugh:

dude, I hate sounding like a dick, but this post was over a month old, I'm pretty much sure those jars have either been thrown out or are fruiting right now. Oh, side note, his kitty turned out alright, at least the last that I had heard, so that's some good news.
