I have 3 jars of b.oyster all colonised, two showing incredible rhizmorphic qualities the third was nice and white also then in a matter of 12 hours all mycelium turned completely green.  WTF.  I know it's mold but...are oysters, Reishi, Shiitake, Lions Mane, Ports, is the mycelium similar to that of cubes, regarding hardiness?  Or do i have to be much more careful with edibles? :mad:

Oster mycelium is far more hardy, vivacious, and hungry than any cubensis mycelium I've ever run across. Oysters are famous for outrunning contams in a substrate. IOW, you can get by with rather dirty substrate. If your bombing out at the spawn level then you need to take a close look at either your technique or your starting cultures. You may get by with dirty substrate but never with dirty spawn.

well i'm pretty confident in knocking up my spawn so I'll have to keep an eye on the other two, maybe i just f-ed up with that one. I also have shiitake, Reishi showing normal growth with no contams so i dont know perhaps jsut a fluke. we will see

The green is white when it is young, then as it matures and sporulates it turns green, if you look at the mycelium under a microscope you would be able to see the differences between mold and mycelium.

Thats the prob with the green is every one at a glance think they are growing healthy stuff......then BAM!
