Black Specks in Liquid Culture???
    #8800858 - 08/20/08 02:33 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

Is it normal to have black specks in the newly forming strands of mycelium in liquid culture?  My LC is only a few days old and there are a lot of strands of mycelium forming, but it seems there is a dark speck at the center of some of the strands.  Is that most likely contamination or is it normal?

"The universe is endless, limitless and infinite.  Any effort to define it's boundaries is an attempt to overcome ignorance.  We are physical, mental and spiritual beings ... there is no beginning and there is no end.  There is only memory.  Our repeated loss of memory experiences create the illusion of beginnings and ends.  Immortality is the ability to retain full memory through all consciousness transformations.  Loss of memory is man's greatest curse and, in very real terms, death."

-- Ancient Taoist Master

Hi. did you mix spore print into liquid solution? If you did then this is probably just ungerminated spores and this is cool. I'd just try shoot up a couple of jars and check for contams. keep LC in fridge for a month while you check. hope this helps
