Shiitake browning mycelia
    #749572 - 07/16/02 12:37 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

IS the browning of SHiitake mycelia (a sign of age) actually something that appears before pinning, or a bad sign??

And is it a sign that primordia are forming or a sign that the conditions are bad??

"...mycelium white at first, becoming longtitudinally linear and cottony-aerial in age, rarely, if ever, truly rhizomorphic. In age, or in response to damage, the mycelium becomes dark brown. Some strains develop hyphal aggregates -- soft, cottony ball-like structures -- that may or may not develop into primordia. Many mycologists classify this this species as a white rot fungus for the appearance of the wood after colonization. However, teh mycelium of Shittake is initially white, soon becoming chocolate brown with maturity, leaving a white-pulped wood".
