Is this really oyster? or a mystery contam
    #24451383 - 07/02/17 08:17 AM (3 years, 10 months ago)

I spawned 200ml of spawn to this tub containing 1.5L, and this is what it looks like a week later.


I was expecting total colonization, just a single solid mass.

or at least thin whispy growth all over. Is this really oyster?

What is it meant to smell like?

What should i be expecting on coir with a little gypsum included.

I thought oyster could make it on cardboard.
Now given it is spreading, it doesnt really look like its eating the coir, moreso, just trying to join up with other grains like cubes would. Its spreading slower on coir than it does in a grain jar. By now the jar would be done top to bottom consolidating.


Because i cant seem to clean this up on agar, and it never seems to produce anything remotely rhisomorphic, i suspect that my initial agar slice might have been overrun with a mold of sorts that looks like oyster myc and grows rapidly and never produces spores.


Or does oyster simply not grow well in coir?

Either way im making a new culture from an older confirmed hay jar that recently fruited after 6 months from the same culture, but 6 months ago.


How do i know if its oyster, what are the characteristics it would show?
is it normal for it to have a sweet-ish smell, like somewhere between the smell of a lithium battery, and menthol, but not at all fruity, just sweet.

Should be much more colonized than that for a week. Oysters grow just fine in coir, hpoo, straw, pretty much anything really. Fruiting though would be a different story if it doesn't have the right things in it, but it will rip through pretty much any bulk substrate.
