So okay here it goes........I have two jars inoculated with same syringe but the difference is one is a half pint and the other is a full pint.........now the little jar has cloud like growth like I always thought mycelium should be.........then the big jar seems to be bright white but stringy and stretchy like its reaching out.........but its not so thick like the little jar....I mean in some areas its overgrown but you can still see the rice.........I was wondering if this could possibly be a contam.

None of these statements are to be taken seriously. FarmerD is a fictional character, and so are the things he posts.

no, the stringy stuff sounds like normal myc growth. just let them colonize normally. you don't really have to worryt about contams spreading to outside the jars. good luck.

There are two type of myc. growth, the first is the cottony, puffy kind, and the second and best is the ropey, stringy type of growth called rhizmorphoric. Rhizo growth usually indicates that you will have a great fruiting, both are pure white and usually there are both types of growth in a jar before there fully colonized. Just a theory here, but I compare rhizo growth to like the roots of a plant, once a pin forms the rhizo growth supplies that pin with the nutes and water to grow to it's full potential. It sounds like you just have both type of growths, in different jars, a pic would confirm this if you can provide one, otherwise i would just let it ride and keep eye on it. GL.
