What Exactly Causes Excessive Spiking and Knotting?
    #6033300 - 09/05/06 11:39 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I was researching a "problem" I'm having, that is, excessive rhizos, or spikes, on my cakes. What I'm wondering, and haven't seen answered definitively in past posts, is whether this is an indication of anything wrong (or right) with the health of the myc, or what this might indicate about the environment? What exactly causes excessive spiking and knotting?

Roadkill posted an excellent picture of what I'm talking about, a while ago:

Some strains/substrains just do that. There isn't an environmental factor that triggers it, nor is there a substrate method that will trigger it. However, it isn't bad. That's the type of mycelium that produces primordia.
