strain vs. mycellial growth
    #1440284 - 04/08/03 08:14 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

my friend has recently cased three trays. all three look lovely, except a few subtle differences in each one. Two were made with Treasure Coast spores, And the others with Mazatapec. One of them has mycellium that is bright white and very rhizomorphic. nice, tight strands of mycellium. another has the same shade of bright white mycellium, but is much fluffier than the other. however, the third casing has the same fluffy mycellium, but is a much darker shade of white - almost a grayish/white.

the first two casings were done with 50/50 tek, but he ran out of vermiculite by the time he got to the third casing and used straight peat moss. would this account for the color distortion? he's pretty sure that the two fluffy mycellium casings were the same strain, and the rhizomorphic one was the other strain. the color is significantly different though. any ideas?

The characteristics you've given to the one different strain definitely sound like Mazzie characteristics. Keep an eye on the casing with the dull grey growth...could be cobweb.

i was afraid of cobweb at first, but all of the growth in that container is that color...i would think it odd that no mycellium grew at all in the casing. i guess it wouldn't hurt to remove it from the terrarium for a bit though just in case. the thing is, it's only grown About as much as the others (actually a little bit less) and cobweb normally shoots out of control.
