Honeywater question
    #1817865 - 08/15/03 07:46 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I made a half pint jar of honeywater (a little less than a teaspoon of honey) and inoculated it with 1cc of spores. 3 days later (today) i don't really see much growth. Just a few wisps of mycelium. my question is is that how its supposed to look? or is there supposed to be tons of the stuff?

when my foaf did his corn syrupwater he microwaved the jar with the syrup/water for 5 mins, covered with saran and innoced, then tapes up innoc hole, and it took around 4-5 days for the ball to come, he had a hard time getting it up into the syringes as it plugged the needle but holy crap, it only took like less then 2 days to see growth on popcorn spawn, full colonization under like 1 week and half in pint jars.

What colour was the ball? Was it brilliant white or a kind of translucent grey colour? I usually use malt extract, and this is my first time using honeywater... I think it might be a contam, but it's just one ball... any thoughts?

Dark Karo is fine, it's just that the lighter stuff makes it easier to see the mycelium

Yes a big white ball of mycellium suspended in liquid...and harvest, yes it speeds up colonization by 3-4 days. Its DEADLY, and a great way to make a 1/2 syringe go really really far!

So if there was a large ball closely resembling a mycelial ball, but the aformentioned ball was of the translucent greyish persuation, and not brilliant white, it should be assumed that this ball is not a mycelial ball but in fact a ball of contaminant?

Anyone else find it funny when you use that word "ball" alot?

ok, just me then :grin:

Yeah, I'm becoming convinced that it's just mycelium , it's not so much grey as a kind of translucent white, and after looking at descriptions of honeywater contams, I think it's just mycelium.
