Reishi Mycelium
    #3719758 - 02/02/05 05:28 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hrm...well I inoculated my mycobag with reishi spores in early december and it's been fully colonized for a while. After I cut the holes in the bag, I noticed some brown/yellowish spots starting to appear in the mycelium near where I had cut and also some other places. I was worried that it was a contam but I let it be anyhow. I went to Phoenix for a few days and now that I'm back, it looks like a mushie starting to grow out of one of my holes. I was just wondering if anyone had experienced the brown/yellow coloring in reishi before and if it might just be bruising or something benign. I've checked what few pictures there are of people growing reishi in bags and it seems like some of them have some of the same coloring but less of it.

You are describing what happens when primordia form, and mushrooms begin to develop. Do not worry, you are in the clear! Give them air to have them develop a conk, or elevate carbon dioxide to have them develop antlers - whatever you prefer...


The coloration is a feature of the mushroom. Perfectly normal...

Excellent!  I'd heard reishi mycelium is good at getting rid of contams and am using this first grow as my trial run.  My apartment definitely is not clean ATM (I smoke cigarettes and don't vaccuum enough in here as well as burn incense).  I had intended on making a little terrarium for my little bag, but when the time came I had little $$ and thought it would be interesting to just see how resilient the mushies can be.  Sorry I don't have any pictures...maybe I can get my mom to bring up her digital camera so I can get some pics up on my first grow :smile:
