Myc on agar
    #8800702 - 08/20/08 01:45 PM (9 years, 5 months ago)

I have seen many pics on here of myc growing on agar.  On my second attempt, I dropped 1 drop out of a syringe and two days later I had white growth.  It has slowly grown more, however, it is Solid white--not cottony or rope-rhizo like.  Around the edges it its raised a bit.  Does this sound correct?  It just doesnt look like any of the pictures I have seen.

Post pictures and/or give it a few more days to see if the morphology changes.

If it's white but not cottony, it could be bacteria contamination as you'll see in the upper right section on this petri dish.  The upper left and bottom sections show mycelium.

This is what it looked like.  I pitched it because it looks like what RR had.

That's bacteria alright.  My guess is from skin.  Staph/Pseudomonas/something similar to one of these.  (I can't remember which one is more prevalent.)
