contamned syringe or wierd mycelium?
    #585995 - 03/22/02 04:48 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I innoculated 11 jars with golden teacher, a couple days later there is something that looks like myc. but is not as white.
It's more like the color of BRF.
It's the same color on all 11 jars, and it's growing very fast!
It started to grow where I innoculated the jars, just like the mycelium should do.
Is this a contamned syringe or is it mycelium?

Within two days eh? Any spore action would look like clear snot at this stage..

Sounds like a contaminated syringe to me.

there was just some sign of growth after two days, but it is growing very fast now.
It looks more and more like myc. except from the color

I'm guessing gray cob mold (most likely). It can wipe out a jar in less than a week, and if left alone long enough it will turn very white and "fuzzy". The key is that it grows about ten times faster than mycelium and you never see the little "ropes" (resemble white threads) growing. This mold prefers to grow in the dark and it can sometimes help to keep the jars in light. (I have seen 24 hour light totaly KILL cob mold once on compost!!)

If it's penicellen (green) it will turn into green spots within two more days. Either way, I really doubt what your seeing is the spores given that it's only been about two days since inoculation. You should see "clear snot" at this stage, if your very lucky.

Good point Jammer, GT's are not known as the fastest colonizers, in fact they have a rep of being slow to get started.

It sounds good but a pic would definitely help.
