FINALLY!!!
    #1940135 - 09/22/03 10:58 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I don't know what it is but something's finally growing in my jars!! I haven't been able to check on them in like a week and today when I looked in my incubator all of the jars are growing what looks like white, fuzzy mold or something. But considering that this is my first time growing I don't know what mycelium looks like. I hope mycelium is white and fuzzy because if it is then I'm well on my way to some healthy shroomz!

Yes, I did read, but I also know from opening month old leftovers in my refrigerator that mold can be white too. I wish I could post pics but I don't have a digital camera. My husband has already been told that I want one for Christmas.

I've been looking on ebay for a digital cam, but I have an iMac computer and not all cameras are compatible with the iMac. The ones that are compatible are a bit pricey, and I've got a 6 month old son whose needs are more important than a camera right now. I'll get one sooner or later...

I don't learn by reading, I learn by doing. I've read everything about the pf tek and how to cultivate/harvest mushrooms. But until I do it myself and understand how everything works and what everything looks like from a first person perspective, I'm clueless. I highly doubt that everybody is a mushroom expert and has the answer to everything before their first grow. If that was true we wouldn't need these bulletin boards because everybody would be successful on their first grow. But people make mistakes all of the time. Now I'm gonna look like a big fucking idiot if I end up incubating my cakes for another month only to find out that it was cobweb mold I was incubating as opposed to mycelium. I've READ in the contamination forum that the two look very much alike. But that it's easier to distinguish cobweb mold on a fully colonized cake as opposed to a partially colonized cake because the mold will appear gray on the white mycelium. Well guess what? My cakes are not fully colonized. In fact there are only "small spots" of colonization on my cakes. I inoculated my jars on September 2. Today is September 22. Here it is 20 DAYS LATER and now somethings finally growing. How can you be sure it isn't mold? Please fill me in...

Hey there take a few breaths and calm down .
Do self favor though and be willing to read all you possibly can on the topic , that way when you talk to folks they know you have the basics , and will take time to guide you through the hands on experience part .
A good place to start is get a copy of THE MUSHROOM CULTIVATOR , you can read it at will i.e. in bed , the toilet etc... it will be the best money you ever spend if you are serious about growing your own mushrooms .

But if I take the lid off to smell it I am once again risking contamination. I guess I'll just have to wait it out and see what happens.

Smelling it at this stage of the game would be a waste and possibly contamiate them .
Cob web looks just like it sounds ... Cob web , kinda on the greyish side very whispy like .
Mycelium is very white , like snow , fuzzy kinda like cotton , sometimes with ropey looking stands (rhizmorphic ) growing out in star like patterns .

ive read that after 2 weeks she should start to worry,if she wears a face mask,sprays the room and loosens a lid just a tince she could do it without contaming it,i havent had contamns yet but i did loosen a jar and had a quick wiff and it was ok.

20 days from inoc is not shit , she does have signs of some sort of growth , it is best to wait and see IMo , why take chance of infecting jar this soon alonng .
That 2 week BS is misleading .
Have personally seen a petri dish with agar take 3 weeks to show first signs of germination , have seen them only take 3 days too , but to say to be "worried " after only 2 weeks .... HOGWASH !

who's misleading, me or the tek i read it from?
i dont give a rats arse what she decides to do its up to her,im only trying to pass on info that might help her.
this was taken from the omc:
How long until I see growth?

After inoculation, you will start to see growth within 3-7 days. Sometimes it will take longer. The growth will be white and spread out.

How long until my jars are ready?

PF jars are ready when they are 100% colonized with nice healthy white mycelium. Usually, the bottom is the last to colonize. It?s recommended that you keep your cakes in their jars for another 3-5 days to ensure that the center is colonized. The process takes on average 3-7 days until you see growth, and 12-30 days until they are completely colonized.

My jars aren?t colonizing?
If it shows no sign of growth after 14 days, start over. Some strains start slow. If you see absolutely no growth, check for darker spots in the jar. This could be bacteria. If you have darker spots (kind of hard to see) then re-examine your sterilization process.

where's your site so i can check out your expert advice?

THE MUSHROOM CULTIVATOR . And many reliable folks here in the shroomery , is my resource center , and hands on trial and error .
Dont get so offended by someone making a statement of belief .
I believe that is very misleading info and could lead others to unwarranted and premature failures ! I never claimed to be an "expert" .
Enjoy sniffing jars !

so are you saying the theomc.com is bullshit?
how strange when it is a sponser of the shroomery!
your either saying that the "expert" advice from this forum is bullshit if YOU havent read it or your saying that i'm a bullshit artist for quoting from it!
make up your mind!
then you try to say i shouldnt get offended when the tone of your post is offensive which ever way you read it,then you add a smart little quip at the end of it like you are real witty or something.....goodone hahaha  :thumbdown:
