I inoculated this about 2 weeks ago. It is Ps. Cubensis, not sure which strain (got it from ralphster). For two weeks nothing showed up so I was 'bout ready to give up. I figured I killed em with two much heat or whatnot. Then over the past four days this has come up?don't know what to think. Anyone?
I used wild rice and brown rice as substrate (I was being a little hasty), and that's all the red and black in the substrate. They have been at a almost constant 70 degrees. There is no odor to speak of.

Looks ok to me, you should leave the top on, don't take it off, even for a photo.

A bit grey in the first pic, but nice white mycelium too. probably slow because of low temp. You should aim for 82-84f.


Good luck

ack

so i look back at it two days ago, and the mycelium had stopped growing and had only colonized about 1/3 of the container. upon close inspection, the rest of the substrate seemed to contain a translucent, gray, stringy mycelium type stuff all throughout it, hard to see, but visible. I took a sniff, had a "sharp" sorta tangy smell (hard to explain), as soon as i whiffed it, i sneezed, right into the jar (ack!), and then proceeded to sneeze about 10 more times. i ran outside and tossed it very far away from my house...i knew something was fishy about that jar...

don't sniff the jars, if it is contamed you can probably get a whiff without the need to open the jars. If the jar is contam, it has been CONTAMINATED with mold, bacteria or something, which is bad. Opening the jar, and taking a good sniff, gets this bad shit into your lungs. There was a thread where someone had to go to hospital because they sniffed a jar.

Grey stringy mycelium type stuff, if was greyey/blueish/greeny then is probably Penicillium / Aspergillus.

i cant tell you for sure which it is, but i'm replying because i know why it took so long to grow. 70f is too cool. bump it up to 80f and you should be alight next time.
