Weird growth...might be contam.
    #4740584 - 10/01/05 12:43 PM (11 years, 2 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.

if you're referring to myc growth in which you can still see the underlying substrate, you'll be ok. Condensation is normal, as well as the cake shrinking, all good signs that the myc is doing its job. I say you're ok, if you're worried about contams just keep your eye on it. Ususally a contam will take over a jar completely in a day or two, especially cobweb.

Cool Thanks,
However I got a question about the mycelium, should it be completely white? or is it normal to be at 100% colonization and have clear/white areas?

I can't see the myc being "clear". If it looks similar to the myc towards the bottom of this jar: you should be OK. Alot of times people get paranoid on their first grow about cobweb mold. Let it finish colonizing. You're fine, relax. :smirk:

Yea it looks similiar to the area the edges of the mycelium that you see there.

However today I noticed 1 cake had these small grey/black dots on the bottom, I dont know if its verm or if its a contam. Also I found a jar that had green substrate hiding between an almost fully colonized jar.

the green was hiding between two jars or the green was in another jar next to one almost colonized or one that was almost colonized had some green in it?
the one with the grey/black dots, just keep an eye on them, if it starts to spread then you know, if not just some verm like you suggest.

best of luck
:peace:

The green was in a jar that was 90%+ colonized, I found it hiding between 2 mycelium growths in the jar.

I also have another jar that looks 100% colonized however its the one with the grey/black dots and i think i found a small green dot aswell. its dunking at the moment im gonna try to fruit it solo and see how it goes.

is it on the colonized grain? if you move the jar around the mycelium can bruise blue.

Be careful, you can only see the surface, never know what's growing in the center. I've read a couple posts about how a contam was noticed and the mycelium appeared to take it over, but the center of the cake/grain was all sorts of funny colors.

Also does it have any smell to it that is abnormal?

Edit: 8 year old thread.. talk about embarrassing, I just did this twice... I'll be paying WAY more attention to dates from now on.
