What am I seeing? I forgot to ask this earlier...

In the Myco-Bags we're cultivating in, which are 7 days past the colonization phase and into the "waiting to pin" stage, there's something going on, but i can't figure out what. Small shiney surfaces are showing up everywhere from inside the mycellium, along with some very very small green splotches. The mycellium has also started chunking itself into seemingly taller clumps. Is this a good thing or bad? Im not sure if its beginning to pin, or if its contaminated. I don't think its contaminated though cause we never opened the bag or let it get punctured/ripped. Any opinions or help would be greatly apprecitated. Thanx.

Could be brused, could be contamed. Be weird to contam however, cause mycelium usually has a pretty strong hold on the substrate at that stage. Guess you'll just hjave to wait and see what happends.

Green is not good. Suspect contam. if it becomes more apparent in a couple days.
