I'm no pro. But if it was me I'd toss it. Is that brown rice flower and verm? If so ya I'd get rid of it. My brf jars never looked anything close to that during colonization

There is rhizomorphs at 12 o' clock and 9 o' clock. I'm not confident that this is mold, I would give it more time to grow or take even closer and clearer photos to confirm, if possible. Mycelium can grow in wildly varying densities and patterns depending on the type of substrate, nutrition in the substrate, moisture in the substrate etc.

Edit: didn't see the text under the photo, if it's black it's mold. Toss it.

If the substrate was not black prior to inoculation than the black areas are def. mold. I was assuming his substrate was dark already(you never know what people put in their cakes, like coffee grounds).

Edit: I didn't see the text under the photos, toss it.

I threw it out. Didnt seeme like it was moldy because the substrate didnt stick together as if it were colonized, but there was definitely something wrong with it.
