It could just be mycelium forming hyphal knots which will turn into pins, into shrooms :smile:  ... However if could be cottom ball mold or cobweb mold. I recommend comparing it to photos in the shroomery contamination faq @ http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23418.

If they look like this it just seems to happen sometimes. Other then the funky lumps everything went as normal

You have good intentions, but you don't know what the hell you are talking about.  It's ok though.

Negative is talking about a cake on top of casing mix growing  and spreading mycelium through outthe casing mix, I think.

The mycelium will spread throughout the casing in search of new subtrate and water. I bet if you were to pull it out it would look like it had roots.

I know it's normal to happen, my friend's is doing it in a similar method and he has the mycelium spreading out on the bottom. It recently got green on it, but he scooped it off.

Anyways, should my friend do anything with the cake to get it to birth? He hasn't dunked it yet.

hmmmm, yes magash that is what is growing. However will these turn into anything? because it is somewhat massive. And they are on cakes but not on casing. Just the geolite. As a "Poormans" pod" slightly modified is being used as a terrarium. Also what i thought was cobweb mold 3 days ago has not seemed to changed color and has not seemed to spread either. Is this ok? i'mfairly certain it is mycellium or "aerial mycellium. but i am really not sure and worried

after looking at the contam pics again it would appear that the tops of a couple cakes dop have this kind of "webbing on them. But it it is not really gray nor has it spread. And it seems to kind of "blend into" the mycellial growth. someone told me that it would eventually turn green. How long might this take because its been on there for about 4 days
