Jars look like they're coming along nicely, but I have a question.

Well, attempt number 2 looks like it's going well, thanks to you guys answering my questions quickly and honestly. I tried 2 jars my first time, and they both ended up being duds. One started to grow mycelium, stopped, then just turned wet and green and was obviously contamed. The other just never grew mycelium, even after almost 2 months.

I wasn't ready to give up quite yet, and I had plenty more spores in my syringe, so I bought a dozen jars and went to buy new supplies (the first 2 jars were pre-prepared). I prepared and inoculated 6 jars, being extra cautious while doing so. This was almost a month ago, and the jars are looking nice, at least compared to my last attempt. One jar had to be tossed because of the mean green, but that's no big loss.

I do have one question though... The mycelium is pure white, but there are some VERY obvious strands. Is it normal to see such strands in the mycelium? I suppose this could be hyphae, but I'm not sure... I'm not a mycologist!

I haven't had experience with cobweb mold, and I'm hoping that's not what this is. I'm fairly certain it's not, but I just wanted to be 100%. I don't have a digital camera sadly...

Thanks ahead of time!

Lots of thanks. I hoped that's what it was, but just wanted to make sure. If all goes well in a little while I'll have some great mushrooms!

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be
