tiny black spec on mycelium
    #4233577 - 05/29/05 03:56 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

i have 4 pf jars that have been colonizing for 7 days, they all have nic thick patches of mycelium. on 2 of the jars i've noticed a tiny dark colored spec on the mycelium, i noticed the spec about 2 days after the mycelium started to grow, the mycelium has been growing fast and great but the black spec hasn't grown at all. Do you think this is a contam, or just a piece of vermiculite or something on the outsideof the mycelium? This is my first attempt to grow by the way. any help would be excellent

I wouldn't worry too much about a single dark tiny speck. Keep watching it, and if it doesn't change size or shape go ahead and birth it. Then keep watching it for change. It's probably as you suspect, a little piece of vermiculite.

If it's really small, like smaller than a pinhead, it's probably just a spore. Some jars I've seen were innoc'd with a syringe of larger spores, and you could see the black specs here and there in the mycellium. You could see them before the mycellium started growing of course, but they were more apparent on a white background.

Not a great picture, but does it kind of look like this? I think I have the same problem.
