Is this white liquid mycelium? (WBS Jars)
    #11302374 - 10/22/09 10:14 PM (8 years, 28 days ago)

So it's been 10 days since spore inoculation, and I'm starting to see a lot of white liquid splotches like the one in this pic (no stringy myc yet). They're mostly growing along the outer edges of the jar. Is this normal? Will these splotches grow into the stringy mycelium material that colonizes a whole jar?



Edit:
Here are better pictures of my jars

Like, can someone send me a picture of the early phases of mycelium growth so I can know what to look for next time? Does it usually start dry-looking or what?

Wet Spot; Sour Rot - Bacillus sp.

    In grain spawn jars, one commonly encounters Bacillus, which sometimes survives the sterilization process as heat resistant endospores. . A dull gray to mucus-like brownish slime characterized by a strong but foul odor variously described as smelling like rotting apples, dirty socks or burnt bacon. Bacillus makes uncolonized grain appear excessively wet, hence the name "Wet Spot". Pallid to whitish ridges along the margins of individual grain kernels characterize this contaminant. Bacillus primarily reproduces through simple cell division. In times of adverse environmental conditions, especially heat, a single hardened spore forms within each parent cell body - bacterial endospores, which can survive high temperatures for prolonged time.
    The most practical method for eliminating bacterial endospores involves soaking the grain at room temperature 12 - 24 hours prior to sterilization. Endospores, if viable, will germinate within that time frame and then be susceptible to standard sterilization procedures. And, new endospores won't form in the moist environment of the resting jar of grain.
