Cottony looking stuff on corn cob spawn
    #369281 - 08/09/01 12:23 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

A foaf has made several batches of corn cob spawn they have all looked the same. But 1 was opened yesterday that was different it was white and cottony looking only on the surface , the cob just underneath this was darker than usual, and ther were none of the rhizomorphic root looking white hairs of past batches. Also there was an odd smell a funky cob smell rather than mushroom smell that had been typical of other batches. The strain was south american from spore chicks. There were successes earlier from same syringe but different teks. Is this contamination or just a different kind of mycelium?

Sounds like cobweb mold to me. Could be just fluffy mycelium though who knows without a picture :)>
