Mycelium or Cobweb...or something else?
    #874586 - 09/10/02 12:56 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

This is my first time growing....done lots of research and followed the PF TEK to the letter. My jars colonized fairly slowly, but they made it. The first jar I birthed, and put in the terrarium...it grew a sort of white fuzz, the texture could best be described as "snow-like"....very light and fluffy and brilliant white (on top of the already colonized mycelium). It never pinned, and a few days later, started to grow mold slimy brown mold, (probably due to me fanning it in a contaminated area). Now, I have birthed another jar, and it has the same white fuzziness, but no mold and still no pins yet. I've heard this can be from too much humidity and heat, though logic and my current conditions wouldn't support that. The fuzz (whatever it is, looks quite brilliant white and healthy, though I'm not sure what to do about it). Sorry I have no pics to share....but what should I do?

Cakes usually go 'fuzzy' before fruiting.
Did you give your terraRium a good clean with bleach after the last disaster??

Good luck

Here are some pics of the cake.....just sprayed it with H2O2 solution to be safe....and cleaned out terrarium and put perlite in.....hoping that'll change something. So far, it doesn't smell bad...a little shroomy...but judge for yourself...is it cobweb?

Them is sum big ass pics! :wink:

Last cake looks  healthy.
The others, i am not sure about that brown at the base, could be shadows on  the photo.

They are about to pin, I can see hyphal knots on the cakes, you should see pins in a few days :smile:

Try to resize your pics next time! :smile:


Good luck

Sorry about the pics....I know they're overkill...but I wanted to be as detailed as possible. Also, those pics are all of the same cake (different angles)...and yes, shadows were sort of a problem....there's definitely nothing brown or black on them, I'm only concerned about the white fuzz (for now)...thanks for the reassurance!

I did not purchase it through the internet....rather I went to a store that sold aquariums and accesories....I still think it's a piece of shit though....anywa, still open for comment on these cakes...anyone can give me their opinions...
