any kind of mycelium growth is ok but most people prefer the strandy type over the cottony...but either way it will colonize and you will get mushrooms...and if there is growth in only one spot you may have to wait a little while but there is also nothing wrong with that. all is good as long as you dont have colored mold.

I also noticed that a few of my jars seem to have the foggy fast growing mycelium that you spoke of Benny. It has spread very quickly, especially on the bottoms of the jars. I don't think it is anything to be concerned about.

Rhizromorhphic, or something like that, is what you call the strandy growth. The cotton like growth tends to be a bit slower and gets infected eaiser. This is the case for Cubensis anyway. Other species will only produce the cotton mycelium growth. If you were working with agar you would cut out that strandy portion of mycelium, and transfer it to a fresh petri. Usually this produces a pure strain. Sometimes it will need to be transfered a few more times to eliminate the cotton growth. You will still always get some cotton growth with a pure strain, just less of it and more strandy. Hope that answers your question. Oh and another thing. Strains from the wild are almost always cotton, and require several transfers to domesticate(ms) the strain for optimum growth.

If I read correctly, The Mushroom Cultivator, by Paul Stamets says that the cottony growth is a sign of strain degeneration?
Anyway, The rhizomorphic growth is definatly more healthy. It colonizes faster, and produces more primorida, not to mention looks "NEAT"! :biggrin: :biggrin:

If the "mycelium" that is growing faster is not bright white, it is most likely not mycelium. I've known in the past if people don't sterilize their jars properly they get infected and taken over almost immediately with whatever came prepackaged with the substrate materials. Look at pictures of other mycelium and if nothing matches up you may have contams. good luck.

K, so the cotton-like mycelium is a product of regeneration?

So the cottony like would be like the other one after a while or what?

And would I make any profit from making my own spores from the mycelium that I "transformed" to the rhizromorhphic kind?
I mean would that spores produce better mycelium than the ones I buy?

Thank you for your answers and your shown interest...
