Eek, dont know what to say..
    #793359 - 08/02/02 09:33 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I wish I could get pics to help but Ive got no camera. The thign is, its day 10 after inoc, and Ive got some nice mycelium going on. However, it looks really odd compared to the pics Ive seen. A few of the jars [I have 7] have some that looks typical. That being small thick patches. Whereas the rest, have extremely thinned out, large patches. On a couple, the patches are so thinned out, they all touch, but are no where near being fully colonizaed, and you can see the substrate right through them.

It reminds me of halloween like spider webs. Like soemone stretched out cottom, till it was really tin, and then through it on my substrate.

I doubt anything is wrong, but Ide still liek to be guarenteed. What do you think? Is soemthing going crazy, or is shit all good?

Also, a cuopla the jars, have for example, a patch under the spot innoculated, and then soem small iccolated patch out in between two inoc points. Whats up with that? Theyre not connected to any other mycelium!

Sounds like you have rhizomorphic growth. Which is a good thing. Mycellium can grow fluffy and thick or it can look very stringy and "stretched out" as you say. The thinned out stringy growth is what happens when the mycellium grows quickly. Don't worry about small areas of substrate showing through the string mycellium, it will be covered eventually. Sounds like your cakes are doing good, I wouldn't worry. The two areas that are not connected are probably due to the spore solution running down the jar and just starting off in a different location, completely normal. As long as your growth is a nice white color then you are good.

Yea, go head & get the terrarium supplies But Know that time is on your side...Even though the cake may look 100% done outside/bottom it still may not be fully colonized inside... Most sites advise waiting @ least 3 days afterwards

Just out of curiosity, were your syringes dark or clear?

Actually, it's very easy to isolate a super producing sclerotia strain.

Follow the strain isolation technique on Let's Grow Mushrooms, and then select sectors early which are brown in color.  By the second or third transfer, you'll see stones developing, and this is only about 1 month after the original swipe of spores on agar.

Now, take each stone and move it to a new dish.  Soon, the mycelium will grow out and you'll see fresh stones developing, and if they're good strains, the sclerotia is forming long before the mycelium reaches the edge of the plate.  Pick strains which form four or five stones within two weeks and use these for your grain masters.

In wet substrates it grows stringy, in dryer substrate is gets feathery/fluffy. You should be OK.
