White Spikey Contam? What on earth is this?
    #25868036 - 03/11/19 07:16 PM (6 months, 8 days ago)

Most of my fruits in this container have white mycelium growing up the stems, and it's clear they want more FAE.

These two pins, however,... they seem to have something else growing on them. It's not white like the other mycelium, it's more of an "off white." It's spikey... I haven't noticed an unusual rate of growth or anything alarming like that.

It's just weird looking...

...does anyone know what this is?

Seems like mycelium looking for air to me.

I do see some odd discoloration in front of the far left (rear) fruit, though.  Is that bruising?  Hard to tell the color.

Take a look at this... do you still think it’s just aerial mycelium?

It’s just so weird looking...

I never could identify it. Pretty sure it wasn’t myc. I chucked it.

Just mycelium. Very poor growing conditions

I agree that growing conditions were poor. No arguments there...

...you really think it was myc though?

-Thick strands all bound together?
-Spikey texture?
-Off-white when compared to the rest of the mycelium in the tub
-Slowly overtook the pins it was growing on

Still seems like mycelium to me.  The growing conditions likely became too poor and the mycelium went in search of air.  I assume the pins slowed/stopped growing?

High CO2 and poor growing conditions can certainly cause the off-white appearance.
