mycelial cultures
    #2637145 - 05/04/04 04:17 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

ok, so since i'm running low on spores, i decided to try the honeywater tek.

so i sterilized some honey water...
added spores...

now there are white fluffy clouds of mycelium. i'm pretty sure its the right fungus, but does anyone have some clear, detailed closeups of mycellium growing in a liquid like this? what are some common contams that i may have growing in there that look like a cube's mycelium?

while i'd like help with this, i guess theres only one way to find out for sure...so tonight (once my jars have cooled completely) i intend to innoculate with this solution unless someone definitely lets me know i have a bad fungus growing in there.

unfortunately i don't have a digital camera, so i can't offer you guys any evidence as to what it is. i'll hope for the best  :syringe:

The clouds are mycelium more than likely. The thing with liquid culture is that you can't usually see the contamination until you do use it so shoot it up and hope for the best. Good luck!
