black dots in agar grown mycellium
    #3661978 - 01/22/05 06:47 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've got a few jars containing a home made potato dextrose based agar mixture that I'm using to grow mycellium (the first time I've tried this). I used hydrogen peroxide in the agar, so I hoped to avoid contamination. I put a little piece of cubensis mushroom (cut from the inside of the cap of a mushroom) into each jar. That was about 3 days ago. Something is growing in the jars - a snow white, wispy stuff centred around the piece of mushroom. Overnight however, a lot of tiny black dots have appeared in the white wispy material (which I'd assumed was mycellium). I can't find any reference to these dots in any of the online guides, but they don't seem to match any of the descriptions of contamination either. Has anyone tried this before? Did you see black dots? Have I, yet again, created a marvellous culture of something that is definitely fungal, but definitely not cubensis?
