Mycelium help.
    #1334237 - 02/25/03 11:20 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

alright, so its prob nothing (and no, sorry, I can't take pics till friday)

But while the cakes are 80-90% colonized, the mycelium isnt much like how it looks in pictures i have seen. I mean, its white and all, but its not nearly AS white as the pictures I have seen, maybe its the tupperware or something.

BTW, I did get a REAL good look at it when I threw out two infected cakes, it seemed to hold the cake together well enough.

give it a good smell, smells sour or funky? toss. Also look at the actual mycelia, does it look like long thin white roots (rhizomorphic) if it does then it should be good, if it doesn't (thin, wispy, cottony) then its probably cobweb mold-toss.

Take something that is pure white and put it up next to whatever the mycelium is in and look at it. also a smeel test would be good and what soochi said about "does it look like long thin white roots (rhizomorphic)" and yeah there you go. its probably mycelium your just noid. btw how long did it take to colonize.

Some of the cakes I've seen were covered in thick stuff, some looked barely covered (I could still see the substrate underneath) - but they were both fully colonized. I think it's just a matter of how much the mycelia grew, not whether it's mycelia or not.
