Cobweb in my WBS jars?? [PICS]
    #2598779 - 04/24/04 09:02 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Still trying to get WBS jars right. First two attempts ended with sour rot. Anyway... these jars were inoculated in a glove box with pieces of a mushroom body that had been washed in H2O2. Colonization happened quite quickly (mostly colonized in about a week). However, I cannot tell if the fuzz at the top of the birdseed is rhyzomorphic growth or cobweb.

How common is it for cobweb to appear in jars during incubation?

Here are some pics:


In this one, notice the nodule like bits sprouting up in the middle of top surface of the birdseed, WTF??


Shows fluffiness at the top, but I'm also worried about how wet some of the grains look. How do things look here, haven't had success with grains yet so I don't know what normal looks like? No off smells.


Again fluffy at the top, but I'm also worried about the wet looking bit at the top of the birdseed in the center of the pic. No off smells.

Looks normal to me.
Whatever you want to do with it, this grain is ready.

I agree with Anno, that's not cobweb, that's healthy growth, well done !
I'm only a bit concerned about pic #3, you have some darkish grains at the bottom which might indicate some problems. Anyway, only time will tell, i hope for the best :wink:

Thanks for the input. I'll be casing the BS tomorrow.

My greatest concern was the height of the mycelium above the top of the birdseed. In another thread I read that mycelium should never grow strands more than a fraction of a cm high above the top of the grain...

Does cobweb give off a distinct smell?

MAIA, the grains that appear dark in the third pic only appear dark because of the lighting, so I guess I'll case the jars and see how it works out.

Thanks again for your help. The boards here are awesome!!

Yes, the smell resembles something like stalled air.
