possible contam on straw - please validate
    #3374062 - 11/17/04 02:44 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

hey!

well i have some straw colonise nice, its abou on day 6 or so and nearly done.

anyway, toady i removed the plastic to air it out and discovered some suspicious
fuzz that i couldnt identify as being mycelium, so, being paranoid i took a pic, here it is:


as u can see, it isnt as white as the surrounding mycelium and this drives me NUTS !!!
its about 1x1cm big and well, u tell me,
btw it sorta looks like a lil ball of polyfill o_O

before i replaced the plastic i sprayed very little .3 h2o2 solution above the straw,
just in case(precautions are always good aight)

so, hoping for positive input
peace ohm :mushroom2:

My positive input would be that it is small, and a good candidate for cutting out and/or peroxide treatment.
My negative input would be that it does look like a bit of mold. I'd bet it will still flush fine, though. Keep an eye on it, and good luck;

damn.

how could i identify it as being mold?
would it spread faster/different than the surrounding mycelium?

peace ohm :mushroom2:

*edit*
i read up on cobweb, i should be able to identify the cobweb if it spreads at the speed of light,
from what i can tell by the look through the plastic, it didnt spread ...

oh god comeone, i dont want any bloody contams, they kill the fun!

I would cut that little chunk out and put it in a bowl with a little wet perl/verm and cover it in plastic wrap and watch it. That way you aren't just waiting around and incubating mold in with your crop, and you can monitor it to see what it does without further damaging your shrooms.
