contamination or water damage?
    #1009724 - 10/31/02 11:38 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

i started 6 PF jars of the B+ strain and 6 jars of Gulf Coast nearly 3 weeks ago. the GC is a little slower than B+, but the B+ jars are almost fully colonized now. my problem is that the fungus doesn't look a bright white color like the pics i've seen. could this be because i can see the grey colored substrate through the mycelium?

i lost only one jar early on to obvious contamination. the rest of the jars seem fine, i've been checking them thoroughly every couple of days. no funky smell, only the smell of verm + brown rice.

there are some light grey/yellowish areas and i'm not sure if this is water damage or conatmination. there's a little bit of water on the inside of the jars, but not enough to drip down the side or anything like that.

the areas of discoloration are not separate from the actual mycelium. it has started to change color after it has already spread out quite a bit.

i wish i could describe it better. any help would be greatly appriciated, because this is my first time cultivating mushrooms. since i have no experience, i'm having a hard time identifying the different contaminants.

ps. i might be able to take some pics of my jars within the next couple of days, if anyone is willing to help. thanks.
