Weird looking growth... might be contam
    #4740568 - 10/01/05 12:34 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

My camera isnt working at the moment but ill try to get pics up as soon as possible. Well its been about 2 weeks and 1 day exactly since i inocd my jars. They were doing really nicely growing nice white mycelium ropes and a couple of days ago i noticed condensation starting to happen. The flucuation of the temps (day-night) might be causing the condensation. Anyways ive noticed that some parts of the mycelium expecially the area closer to the verm looks clear/white and some spots of the myc i can still see some verm. Its mostly all bright white, but there are those areas that look clear/white. Is it the moisture? or a contam? Oh yea and it looks like the cake shrunk im hoping that is a good sign. Ill try to get pics up asap.

I believe that if people would learn to use LSD's vision-inducing capability more wisely, under suitable conditions, in medical practice and in conjunction with meditation, then in the future this problem child could become a wonderchild. - HOFFMAN

It could be one out of many things. Get that camera and take some pics.
Meanwhile, and if colonization is about 80%, you can try untaping the holes and flipping the jars. That way, any excessive condensation will head to the verm layer and air exchanges will be faster.
Don't forget about putting the jars in a clean place. Good luck :wink:
