Contaminant Microscopy, trichoderma?
    #24454589 - 07/03/17 03:37 PM (3 years, 10 months ago)

Backround: tub was spawned direct  to fruiting in an unmodified 16qt  mini mono 2qts spawn :~3.5qts coir. MS cleaned up on agar, two transfers from germ plate, 7/23, this morning an abnormal growth was noticed.

A  scalpel was used  to carefully remove a small fleck of white from the abnormal growth


The white fleck was placed on a clean slide with a couple drops of distilled water and a cover slip.
This is what it looks like at 400x total magnification.


Looks to be  a contaminant, has structures similar to trichoderma and other molds.
Tub has been taken outside and isolated.

When i placed the cover sheet on the slide I think i saw it change color, my first thought was "maybe its just bruising", but then after microscopy I knew for sure it was not, put the tub outside and a couple hours later it was green.
