Mexicana A woes
    #11214914 - 10/09/09 02:06 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

damn, so I've had some Mexicana A quart jars innoculted from a Sporeworks spore syringe sitting for a few months now. I thought it was a good time to crack one open and harvest some sclerotia today but all I found was mycelium and rye berries with a VERY strong almond extract odor. Initially I thought maybe  I had waited too long and the jar had rotted so I cracked another one a month old and one 2 months old. all the jars contained the same white fuzzy mycelium with brown/orange spots (that i thought was characteristic to Mexicana A mycelium) and NO sclerotia at all! I only saw white mycelium in the jars and no other colors indicating contamination.  Has anyone else encountered this? hell, do I have a stock of jars growing something else all together? thanks for the assistance

Opening jars that are only 1 month old is wayyyyy to early for sclerotia strains

yes i realize this; i was just checking to see if sclerotia had started to grow in any of the stages of jars i had. Since jars from 3 months and 2 months did not show any signs of sclerotia growth i just checked it out of curiosity. there should have at least be initial sclerotia growth in one of the jars, right? they shouldn't smell at all, at any stage of growth; right?

never open jars to check them they could potentially contaminate that way best thing is patience.

right, I wasn't going to just check the jar and put it back. I wanted to just harvest some sclerotia from one of the many jars I had sitting.

Didi you use half weak coffee when you made up the rye and a pinch of gypsum?

ya. the almond smell unnerves me and makes me think i've been using a contaminated syringe or something. without even small sclerotia i'm pretty puzzled

you should have plenty of visible stones at 1 month.
with that said mexicana have small and numerous stones, they often are about the size of a rye berry. Almond or nut smell is a sure sign that its mexicana.
wait longer, spawn them for mushrooms(and stones in the casing), or buy atl#7 for big stones.

I think I'm heading down the same path. Lots of mex A no-shows lately, it seems.
