what's the better mycelium?

regarding cubes; is it better when the mycelium has a thick threaded growth or a thick fuzzy growth? (assuming temperature and RH levels are optimal.) :coffee:

IMHO....& observations, Myc can change from one to the other, as it needs to. If all else is equal - excluding the nutes?

Usually this happens because of a change in what it is colonizing.

Myc sort of develops BIG TEETH & WALKING SHOES (rhizo) to travel through & digest something tougher (note myc usually turns rhizo - when it hits hard straw, or tough dung clump,) or hits non/nute container wall & tries to travel up it.

At the same time, if it is colonizing something soft & easy to digest & does not have to fight its way through it, it turns linear (LITTLE TEETH). Because it doesn?t need BIG RHIZO TEETH & WALKING SHOES to do so.

You can sometimes witness same thing inside a colonizing wbs/rye glass jar. Often, linear myc colonizes up to the inside glass (no nutes), then turns rhizo (develops big teeth & walking shoes)& travels along the internal glass face.
