growth/excretion/comtam in jars?
    #4390455 - 07/10/05 08:19 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Does anyone know what this is seemingly growing on mycelium in jars? It looks almost wortish, varying hues of pale yellow, orange, pink. These jars are south african transkei cubensis. inoculated WBS in 12 Kerr tall 250 ml jars 14 days ago, incubated at 84-86 F since. Majority of jar surfaces 90-100% colonized with all jars containing same growth/excretion. I don't think it's a contam, maybe the result of lack of air since the jars are taller with air exchange somewhat hindered (?). I have 12 other wide/short 250 ml jar of Ecuador cubensis going with the africans, they took slower at first but have all completely colonized w/o problems. If anyone has any info to offer, I'd be much appreciated.

Looks kind of like mycelium being pushed against the glass or condensation. I don't think it's a problem though, but then again I haven't a clue what it is.

if it's watery it may be etyhl alcohol as a result of fermentation. this means that there is not a good air supply. that shit kills myc though...so probably not unless you're seeing it rip through your cake

Thanks for the reply's. I'm not so sure if it is etyhl alc. resulting from fermentaion, because these spots first appeared fairly early amongst the mycelium after inoculation. It doesn't seem to be hindering further mycelium growth. I flipped the jars 2 dys ago to maybe get some better air circulation going. Since then, the spots seem to have darkened (yellow-orange)slightly and the mycelium is slowly overgrowing. I still haven't any real clue what this stuff is. Anybody have further suggestions? Thanks
