Oyster on petri looks almost like dust, and grain jars have a green ring

This is two issues.

Firstly, on agar, i have the mycelium grow on two ways, it either makes almost invisible super fast growing mycelium and thats that, or, it fluffs out and looks like cotton candy, kind of, like, the mycelium appears all broken up and spun, totally disorganized unlike cubensis mycelium which grows in a straight line.

Next, every oyster jars grain eventually starts to turn green and go mushy, and smells sweet. One extremely fargone jar smelled slightly of ammonia. every jar does this, even jars i re-did with myc from a dish. Not any like in the picture, its the other kind thats almost invisible. just extremely thin and transparent.

I checked a new jar made very carefully, which somehow colonized (230ml) in 6 days. some grain does seem to be greening, but it doesnt smell, though they usually dont at first. its only after the mycelium really thickens out, then usually the grain gets a bit mushy and if i try to break the mycelium the grains pop out of the myc mass. ive found so far in colonizing coir this stuff doesnt affect anything, also, the myc isnt bothered in the slightest. Im almost inclined to believe perhaps the air supply is just being cut off and the jar is going anaerobic and producing a lot of metabolites, i dont know how clean oyster mycelium should smell, so far my only successful fruit is in a little test jar of sterilized hay that has produced a single small fruit.
