Strange balls of bright white
    #2898580 - 07/17/04 12:53 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I have a casing that I have been incubating for about a week now, and I've just opened it up to check how it's going. It has pretty much colonised all the way through but on top it has these rather large blotches of white (inch in diameter) that rise above the casing layer by a few mm. A very bright white, when touched it feels kinda slimy and oozes water. The patches do connect on the sides with the mycelium underneath though. The casing hasnt had it's gladwrap taken off until just now, so maybe it's just what mycelium does when low on oxygen?

Also at the same time I made two little casings with solo cups. These cups have colonised through the casing layer but it kind of looks like cobweb. They both look like cobweb actually, except where cobweb stays strandy and goes high off the casing, this stuff is squat and tends to "clump" and form big masses of pure white.

Am I contammed or is this just myc crying for oxygen?? :frown:

Sorry about no pics :frown:

It was thick and white, creamy and the whole thing had a mild rotten apple smell. It was cased grain and I think I made it too wet/used glad wrap. I just upended it in the garden bed outside and covered it up, see how it goes out there :smile:

That post pretty much describes it.


EDIT: Actually, I think this was rhizomorphic growth, and I just threw away a good cake :<

Mycelium is growing on the exterior of the cake. As far as i can see, it looks like you have the substrate packet too tight, it also looks a bit dry and it seems like there's a yellow powdery substance on the center area (although it could be the BRF, i dunno).
Adding the smell, hmmmm , my advice is to start again ...
