A little worried...
    #310216 - 05/06/01 12:54 AM (16 years, 22 days ago)

I just started noticing some growth in some jars which were innoculated about 5 days ago. The growth is small, white, and fuzzy, but does not look like the pictures I have seen (its not brilliant white). The spots are very small so far (1 cm or so).

What exactly do the EXTREMELY early beginnings of mycelium growth look like?

Give it a few days...be patient. When the spot gets bigger youll be able to tell for sure. If where your keeping yer jars smells funny then its probably contams. Give it a few days tho (unless it smells funny)

The first time I had jars colonizing I thought the same thing, contams. It was not bright white like the pics but whispy dull white. All is sure to be well...within a couple of days, when the rhizomorphs begin spreading further, you should see the colonized portions get more dense and brighter white. Some strains produce slightly different looking mycelium than others. Some being very dense, some being sort of whispy. What strain are U working with? The outermost edges of the spreading mycelium may continue to look whispy while the inner areas will thicken up. Keep an eye on them. If what you are seeing is consistantly showing up beneath the innoculation holes it is bound to be the right thing...Unless of course you had a contaminated syringe...lol...just joking. give it a little time..
