cob web contamination or normal growth?
    #11761126 - 01/03/10 10:23 PM (12 years, 21 days ago)

just wondering if the growth is Cob web mold or normal mycelium growth... heres the scenario.

started out with 8 pint jars with dark rye flour and vermiculite.
pc'd them for 90 min at 15 psi.
allowed to cool to room temp.

(remind that all jars were treated the same)

inoculated 4 with "lipa yai"
inoculated other 4 with "australia"

after 1 1/2 weeks both jars are at 45% colonization.
the "australia" is growing normally with no contamination.
the "lipa yai" is also growing but seems to have possible cob web.
only the lipa yai have what might be possible cob web.
yet the australia is not affected with any cob web.

is the lipa yai characteristic with loose mycelium? and this is normal? or do I have to toss it out?
or let it continue colonization and see what happens?
because the possible cobweb is pitch white with no green or any other color.

Cobweb is never green, normally a greyish colour.
sounds like mycelium.

But post some pictures - that would help.

UPDATE:

week n a half in. the lipa yai suspected "cob web" has now started to look grey and closer to the substrate there seems to be a black mold growing... only on the lipa yai strains, the australian strain is colonizing perfectly. is it time to just toss the lipa strain? or let it grow? seems the mycelium is overpowering the cob web big time. but we'll see. I've quaranteened the bastards and seein what happens.

hoping for the best. not used to lipas, I'm a creeper, cambo guy haha.

If it's gray and black, toss that shit out now.  Filters are not 100%, so if you let that stuff grow, mold spores can leak out the verm barrier and ruin your day for months to come.

I've isolated it to a "contamination" barrier meaning its own plastic quarantine station. so far its still growing. AND the grey cobweb is turning white. I'm gonna stick to scifipirate and see whats up. but to everyone reading... its in its own box. charcoal filtered and on watch duty to see what happens. but like rogerrabbit might just throw it out and bleach n scrub outside. cuz I ordered some golden teachers and shooting stars. see how those little bastards do haha. wish me luck. and will update.

Hey guys I'm brand new to this site so please forgive me if I'm replying or posting in the wrong area. I'm looking for some input on possible cob webs. I currently have a 1lb spawn bag that is on day 11 of colonization. Everything was going great and I was seeing mycelium after about 3 days. But part of the bags for some odd reason were actually drying out so badly that all the grain was beginning to split and seemed incredibly dry. So I placed a brand new, decontaminated humidifier in the room. Temp has been a constant 79 degrees F with roughly 69% humidity. Once I placed the humidifier in, I shook the bag and mixed it, because it was already about 50 % colonized at that point. It immediately started showing robust growth of mycelium, but now I'm questioning it. It all looks great, like classic myc. But now there seems to be a top layer of very white, almost "puffy" matter that is growing on and around the grain. It is white, but some spots look slightly gray. Sorry for the picture quality ahead of time, it's hard to get a good pic through the bag. Just wondering if I could have possibly introduced it to cob web by raming up the humidity? Or is this top layer normal for a healthy colony? Up to this point it was growing very fast and robust! Thanks in advance everyone. If you cant tell I'm a fairly new hobbyist so please refrain from attacking my ignorance.

From the pictures it looks like a bacterial problem, I mess up my grain prep on my last grow and that had happened. Hag great growth after knocking them up than I shook em they grow almost to 100 but would have spots that wouldn’t colonize. Here some pictures of mine. P.S. If so it’s in grain prep drying , pcing
