Re: rhizomorphic versus cottony growth on agar

i believe that the mycelium will become more rhizomorphic, and grow more rapidly after it becomes dykariotyk. also the qualities of mycelium varies per strain as shown in the TMC. I dont think that the 4 month time would effect the spores negativly in any way.

Completely straightup downright digging it. Can you dig it?

This is extremely common when introducing spores onto agar medium. You have tormentose, all you need to do is perform 1-2 rhizomorphic isolations.
This seems difficult because all you see is fuzz, and the entire plate could grow out that way, with a few ropes finally appearing towards the end. This generally occurs by adding too many spores; you get a massive lawn of monokaryons, and it takes a while for them to get sorted out.
Anyway, take a small piece of fuzz/mycelia, from the outer growing edge and put it in the center of a fresh petri.
Depending on the amount of spores you started with, this may take more than 1 plate to isolate only rhizomorphs.
The second plate will contain aprox. half fuzz, and half ropes. Transfer a growing edge of ropey mycelia to a fresh petri, and hopefully this plate will be pure ropes.
Now for the good news....
Unless you need to sector a pure strain....
IT DON'T MATTER!
Your petri is fine for all intents and purposes, whether it be for a transfer, PDY, or sterile water inoculant.
If you get tons of aborts, or just a few mushrooms, or no mushrooms at all, well then that is a possible sign that your strain has degenerated.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the post. BIG TIME help!

Sterile water was used to innoculate jars of bird seed. Today (this morning in fact), I see some strandy sections.

I guess I was just hoping for fast growth. Impatient person that I am.

I'm thinking it would be wise to isolate some of the strands that I see growing in the jar?

Later, Tor
