Need help - mold or normal growth?
    #24097246 - 02/17/17 10:37 AM (2 months, 7 days ago)

Hello everyone, I recently encountered a possible contamination/rot issue with my mushroom grow. I have a tote full of cakes for two different species (Koh Samui and Purple Mystics). Recently for various reasons I have been unable to perform any maintenance on it. College started again and I had to wait about a month for my brother to bring the tote to me. When he brought I opened it to check on them and immediately noticed a fluffy-looking whitish growth on many of the mushrooms (not on the cake directly). I had noticed a similar growth before but this was a small amount due to overabundance of moisture, and went away after adjustment. Because I've been very busy I have been procrastinating on dealing with this situation, and when I checked on it today I noticed that the coverage and thickness of these cobweb-like structures had expanded greatly. I will attach several pictures of the cakes so that you can see it for yourselves. I kind of assumed at first that this is some sort of mold and that I will have to throw out some or all of this grow op. But on further examination it appears somewhat similar to rhizomorphic growth, which might be normal, so I was thinking maybe this is the fungus decomposing the mushroom/fruit which has died because it was left unharvested for too long, or something like that? This is my first grow, so any input anyone may be able to offer is welcome. Thanks for your help!
