cobweb questions
    #3188452 - 09/27/04 10:36 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

im new to growing boomers. i started about 2 weeks ago and my myceyium(sp?) has started to take over . i was checking them out today(o yea im using the vermiclite and brown rice method with 1/2 pints) and 6 of the jars apear to be contaminated with cobwebs. im just making sure that its cobwebs and not myceycium. i pout 1/2 an inch of vermiclite at the top of the jars and it appeared to me that the cobwebs were in that so i took one of the contaminated jars out and opened it far away from the oters and checked it out. and sure enough cobwebs were in the top layer of verm.

i was just wondering if the myciuemememe could gte in the top layer of the verm.??? and should i dig out the cobwebs???

Hard to tell without a pic, but if something is growing right on the verm layer but mycelium has not yet achieve a good growth level, then it might be a bad occurrence and a case of cobweb.
Right now you can't do anything but wait, if mycelium keeps growing, you'll surely see it as pure white. Meanwhile, report any change.

Damn ...
Molds before birth are very hard to fight. All you can do is wait and see, but tossing the infected jars and starting all over seems like a good idea to me.

I think I got cobwebs... But don't know. Anyways, I've posted this on cultivation and was redirected here, so hopefully someone can help or at least give me enough hope so I can go to sleep.

I don't know if it's cobweb or not. But I'm on my 3rd day and the growth covers about 1/2 of the glass surface. It's really moving fast and thin. So think that I can't really tell if it's white or gray. The growth is from the innoculation sites but they are so fast. I'd wait couple of days, but being this is my first growth, I'm getting serious case of anxiety attack.

Anyways, the strain is Golden Teacher, 4 syringes were made from a print(it actually was 2 mush on a print) with saline with 5% dextrose and soaked for 20 hours.(maybe contam got in here?) Each site was injected with .5cc. I'm almost at 72 hour point. Jars in tub in tub at about 84 degrees.

I'm hopping it's the mycelium growing on the Dextrose solution and not cobweb.

Here's the question, anyways. How would I know if it's a cobweb? Would it become obvious in few days?(The waiting will kill me) Should I just chuck them and start over? I still have 2 syringes in the fridge. Should I take them out of the tub to see if I can slow the growth?

Any advice would be very very appreciated, because I can't sleep with this possible comtam looming over me. I was really really careful and use sterile everything!

Thanx.

Unfortunately, without a pic you have to play the waiting game. There are some good pics of cobweb around, I'm sure you've seen a few. The growth looks more 'fine', 'wispy', and FAST. If you're seeing that much growth in a 3 day period from spores, it doesn't sound great. . .keep an eye on it and really look closely at the growth. Compare to some of the jar growth seen in some of the grow logs. If you can get a pic, that would be very helpful.

I looked up some pictures of cobweb(there's no good side view) and they don't really look like it. I'll sit on it for awhile. At least I still have burma strains colonizing properly. Thanx.

Just an update. I woke up this morning and found the jars in question to be looking healthy all of a sudden. It's stopped growing outwards and started fattening up into nice fluffy white stuff. I guess it was just wide spread germination or something... maybe dex in water... in any case, I'll keep an eye on it.
