First time grower questions
    #3834679 - 02/25/05 10:02 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

OK so I am fruiting my first batch but had a couple of questions. First I'm growing B+'s on rice cakes. I started out with 4 and only 2 made it. Now both are producing mushrooms but the largest one has what appears to be little spikes growing halfway up the stem. It doesnt look like normal mycelia but spikes is the best way to describe it. My second question is that of the two cakes, one (the one with the largest mushrooms on it) the mycelia seems like it's kind of "stretched" over the rice and the second it seems much more fluffy.

I hope I'm just being too observant but it's better to check before I start eating them.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Everything sounds pretty normal to me; can you post a picture of the "spikes"?

Sounds like Rhizos...very agressive mycelium.

Do they look anything like this?

And heres the closeup.


Another issue I have is that they all seem to be growing from the lid of the jar and not from the sides or top of the cake at all.

Nothing to worry about my friend. That's just mycelium that got excited.
Your cakes are pinning at the bottom because that's where the water is. Do a search for "double end casing tek" or "dunk and roll". Either of those should improve pinning.

Sorry to resuscitate an old thread, but I was researching a "problem" I'm having, that is, excessive rhizos, or spikes, on my cakes. What I'm wondering, and haven't seen answered definitively, is whether this is an indication of anything wrong (or right) with the health of the myc, or a problem with the environment? What causes excessive spiking and knotting?
