possible contam?
    #3275109 - 10/25/04 02:03 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I have 4 PF cakes that have been fruiting for almost a week. There are some fatties, however, most of them are covered around the base and stem with a fuzzy, white growth. I've been looking on the contam forum and it somewhat resembles cobweb but it's not gray enough. I'm thinking it's just overgrown mycelium, but before I make any decisions I figured I might ask a few second opinions. FYI: i use 6/18 fluorescent lighting, mist once or twice a day, fan 4 times a day, temp. is 75 F, and the cakes are sitting directly on a half-inch perlite layer in a dual-chambered terrarium. Sorry, no pics. Any help or information about this kind of growth would be greatly appreciated.

Everything I post in this forum is entirely false.

Yes, I'm almost positive it's just mycelium.

I have seen this in pics of other people's grows before, one person even had a mushroom growing off of another mushroom!? 

Anyway, I think it was chalked up to being too high of humidity or something.  Mycelium on your mushrooms will cause absolutely no harm, and if anything increase your potency by the amount that is in the mycelium :wink:

If you had a picture it would be great :frown:

I still think you're fine.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
