PF Jar colonized with strange mass
    #3198866 - 09/30/04 05:07 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i have a pint jar pf style, 90% colonized, but there are these very strange light brown masses that form. they start off a very light tan it as they grow they get a little darker. what is very strange, is it forms in areas that have been fully colonized for a while, then magically starts to grow. any idea what this may be?

i might add that they get occasional light from me checking on it...
i wish i had a digicam...

I wish psychedelic mushrooms were legal, because I would like to indulge in this amazing fruit of the earth. Unfortunately, I can only learn about this interesting hobby, and cultivate legal mushrooms.

It's fine. It's mushroom mass type stuff. You can pick them off and eat them and they are potent as mushrooms..I dunno what it is exactly but it usually happens if your jars are taking a while to colonize then the more colonized parts form these. Also if you leave your fully colonized jars for to long without casing them. I've noticed certain strains do it more then others, Z's for me have done it more often then other strains. Usually seems to come from cotteny type mycelium.
