Contam maybe
    #3187250 - 09/27/04 06:29 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have 2 Jars that were innoculated and are being kept in an area thats about 78-80 degrees. They were innoculated at four points each and its been about 5 days. There are light white clumps forming at the innoculation points but it looks way to light to be mycelium, and more like mold. I would guess it is mold but it's just that it's at the points of inoc. and seems to be getting a little whiter (and not as light) each day?

soon will have pics... but what do you guys think

Ok, the jars were innoc'd ~ 6 days ago as of today.  Depending on the mixture and texture of your rice and verm substrate it may be a little thinnner or thicker than other pictures you've seen.  I've seen well over 200 jars that I've done in the past year and I've seen everything from a solid white wall covering the cake in 2.5 weeks to hair thin mycellium thinly spidering across the cake and seeming to take forever to ever  get thicker.  If it looks white and is coming from where your innoc points are you are probably good, you dont need to jump to conclusions for atleast another week.  I'd say you're probably good though. :cool:
