Contam or mycelium
    #1438228 - 04/08/03 03:54 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hi guys... a friend inoculated four jars... three out of four were contaminated by day four with a green mold he is just wondering if this looks like mold as well... sorry its not the best pic.

I have more pics but they arent as good.. all growths were at inoculation points.
It looks a litle green in the picture but it isn't. At best it ooks white at worst it looks grey.

Hard to tell from photo, but to me it looks just like mycelium beginning to grow.

Just wait and see, I guess. I think you're okay with that one.

BTW, 'cobweb' (i.e. cobweb mold) is a contam. Mycelium is what you want.

I know I made a mistake in the topic...

Hehe. It happens. :smile:

I see you fixed it though. But it may have been more appropriate to have 'Cobweb or Mycelium', because I don't know of any contam that could be mistaken for mycelium except maybe cobweb mold.

But I'm quite sure that jar is all right. About 95% sure, actually - and that's as good as it gets from a photo, I guess. :wink: G'luck and update so I know how you go!

:laugh:

Thanks man I will.... my friend got very paranoid because of the rest of the jars contaminating..

I see you are fellow aussie too... do you know about www.ethnobotany-australia.net ? would be great to have you add your knowledge to the fungi forums!

mycel is usually a bit wispy when first starting to grow, leave it alone for a while and it should be ok.

You can use that one good jar to grow several more just look under the mycelium culture techniques.

I guess you just resurrected as 3 years old thread, lol.
Nevermind, just try paying more attention next time. This thread is very elucidative though :smile: ...
