EQ mycelim look different ?
    #1133513 - 12/11/02 08:17 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I am still a newb to the mycology biz, was wondering if anyone has had experience growing Equador strain. I have grown PF and Hawaiin, and their mycelium appeared similar (with slight noticeable differences) but the Equador cakes I just innoculated are looking noticeably different from the PF or Hawaiin. I really dont think its contam.. anyone know wtf is going on? as of right now I am just assuming that its a species difference. the rhizos appear to be a lot smaller than eother PF or Hawaiin strain, and slightly more off white. hmm. If anyone has any input, i would appreciate it! thanks a ton,

how are they "looking" exactly? Can you describe or post a pic? No "off-white" on my friend's eqs. Nice strong white color. Sure you ain't lookin at cobweb?

Did you do anything differently with your substrate recipe this time? The off-white color you're talking about sounds like it's due to a bit extra moisture.

Nah its not cobweb, I have seen that before... I have a feeling it was some bad spores. This is my second batch that I innoculated, Both producing the same results. This time I went 100% to make sure that I eliminated all contam vectors. Used a pressure cooker, glove box gallons of lysol and alcohol, flamed the needle after every jar, wiped the needle with alcohol after every hole, you name it I did it. it serioulsy looks as if the syringe I ordered was just mold, not even mushroom spores. The stuff that is growing in there isnt emiiting a strong stench yet... I looked at it again this morning. It almost looks like tiny tiny rhizo's, about 1/10 the size of normal ones, and they are nearly the color of the substrate. They also seem to be growing in a circular pattern. Every jar is like this. Now I admit I am not perfect, so one or two jars being infected would be perfectly normal. But all 6 ? I used a pressure cooker, more than 45 minutes at 15 psi you cant mess with :smile:. So I dunno... Im baffled as usual :smile: while I'm at it... my friend owns a horse. Anyone know any good dung/hay recipes ? :P
