I tried to do a search, but I didn't know how to phrase the question. Here is my friend's situation. A pint jar with polyfil filters was filled with popcorn, sterilized, and innoculated. After a week, growth is evident, but today he noticed something odd. The mycelium looked healthy, but in the bottom of the jar were a few very dark specks. They could have been black, but also could have been extremely dark purple. I am wondering if they could have been small clumps of ungerminated spores that slowly made their way through the maze of popcorn to settle on the bottom of the jar. Or could it be more serious? I can get a pic for identification if need be. Thanks all!
