what is this black shit on my myc?
    #11327037 - 10/26/09 09:31 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)





So these pics are shitty, I know.  and I know this jar is contaminated, that's not what i'm asking.  I was just wondering if someone could tell me what would cause perfectly white and healthy mycelium to turn black. 

can the mycelium be attacked by some form of bacteria/other mold and cause it to turn black?  I just figured it was strange to see contamination only on healthy mycelia and nowhere else in the jar.


the mycelium started out white, then it started to have a slight grayish tinge a few days later (as featured in the first pic), then a few days later its totally black and in my garbage.

it's in the same family of chemicals as DDT and PCBs.
Don't worry, it’s not DDT, it’s “DDT-Lite!”

the initial mycelium was probably the mould itself and then as it matures and starts to sporulate it changes colour.  It is normally the sores that give the colour to the moulds and not their mycelium.
