yea, so i recently put the inside of some stems on agar and some white fuzzy stuff grew. then, after a few days, red spots started appearing and they got bigger (spread from center, and then outward). So my queastion is this contamination?or is this part of the mycleium(aka it was magic mushroom mycelium that i cloned). tips and stuff would be helpful

Probably contamination. What was your procedure for doing the cloning? How sterile? Post some pics and the big boys will set you straight.

From now on, if you have any contamination questions don't ask it unless you have a pic. because I will not be answering or reading any without them.

red wether its on agar or in substrate is most definatly contamination. Probably lipstick mold.

But thats the great thing about agar, is that contamination is a loss. As long as you have healthy mycelium you can transfer a piece furthest from the contamination to a new dish. Then keep going until you have a clean culture.

We need a picture too,
