Maybe I'm Wrong. Mycelium Growth?
« on: September 13, 2009, 07:23:18 AM »

So I was so excited to see these little white specs inside my jars, but maybe I was wrong. Could this be mycelium, my boyfriend thinks its just clumps of brown rice flour. The spots look like half pieces of rice, and are consistant throughout the jars. Now I'm just not sure.

Athornsbee,
  We need photos to know what it is you are describing.  Upload them at imageshack, or photobucket. 
  Only then will we be able to accurately determine what you are seeing.
 Until then, GL.

at first site a small spot of myc should look like a sun Burst of white
if its allover the jars and u only inoculated 2 of the sides then it should start in the stream of innoculant that whent down the side of the jar
that would be the first places it would show the littel sun spots
 i assume u are doing the PF tek
how long did u wait to check them u should always wait at least a week i know its hard but if u dont it will slow growth down
same thing with checking it all the time

ps save up for a pc colonizing time is cut in half with grains it is worth it
i got a 23 Qt presto at walmart for 65 bucks or somthing like that make sure ur pc will go up to 15 psi if u do

chances are that if its all over her jars
and not just at the inoc points then its just riceor its a contam
when using the pf tek there is no way for the spores to get all over the jars
unless u have 4 inoc points in theory
common cents tells me that its rise
pics would help
but i would wait a week then check them
then u wont have to ask us
