Mycelium Problem
    #2397882 - 03/03/04 12:21 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Hi guys,

Just wanted to ask a couple of questions bout my mycelium growth.
[url=http://www.shroomery.org/forums/files/04-10/833357965-Copy_1_of_Image08.jpg][image]http://www.shroomery.org/forums/files/04-10/833357965-thumb_Copy_1_of_Image08.jpg[/image][/url]
This is one of the jars that seems to be colonizing well. 18 days into incubation, what do you guys think?

But several of my jars (like the one above) seem to have developed this grey looking mycelium alongside the normal white kind...You can just about see on the above picture the topmost part of the mycelium is grayer then the rest... Is this dead or dried out Mycelium? The PF jars are on a heat pad, but sitting on and surrounded by a bed of small Polystyrene balls (polyfill?) in another container... Temp is variable, but at least 75degreesF and (hopefully) not more than 90F... Any ideas what this could be... Also, any tips for speeding up my colonization? The lids have been loosened to allow for air exchange.

Thanks everyone,

Enzan

it could be cobweb. If its a profoundly different type of growth and grey as you discribed it its not sounding good.

I'm in agreement with MoNk, it looks like cobweb mold. But don't despair, throw the contaminated jars away, clean the outsides of the good jars and the inside of your incubator and you'll probably end up with some fully-colonized, uncontaminated jars.

Jesus, i hope not... It doesn't look like a different type of growth... It just looks like dark, slightly see-through, mycelium. Like it's died or something. It is still stringy and rhizomorphic like mycelium. Can you view the pictures I posted, coz i can just see the code...
Here's another, only slight better picture of the grey shit...You can see that where the normal mycelium ends, it becomes greyer...
