  1. hi, is this mycelium of mould.

    Hi all I'm new to mycology, I found these pictures on the net and I'm wondering if it's mould or new mycelium growth. The pictures say that they were inoculated on the 27th of January and are sitting around 25 degrees Celcius. Cheers Omes
  2. so my jars where colonizing really good for the first 2 weeks. but then when they hit 100% colonized they seem to have stopped growing. this jar has been fully colonized for almost 2 weeks now and it looks the same. the mycelium does not look any thicker. the temp for my jars have been right at 75 F the whole time. should i just birth the cake and see what happens? i feel like the mycelium does not have a good enough hold of the substrate and will just fall apart when i take it out. any suggestions on what i should do. here are some pics.
  3. B+ Brf Cake Hyphal Knots

    Pretty sure these are Hyphal Knots, it is Cubensis B+ on a 1 pint jar Brf cake. It has been in the fruiting chamber for a week.
  4. I was noticing today, that my mycelium seems to be loosing it's bright white thick appearance. Could it be from pressing against the glass? The myc on the very top, looks like a super white thick puff. Seems as though the myc is becoming more transparent? It's still growing, but older growth not as vibrant anymore? Thoughts? I couldn't find anything in the search of a similar situation. Day 15, MS syringe, constant 78, no visible moisture in jar, rye.
  5. Hello guys. I have 2 pictures of 2 cakes. The one where is just a little of mycelium I am sure that this is healthy but the other one which has a lot of white staff I am not because this white things grows very fast and also because of the color it's more white sad. Can you confirm that everything is OK?.. Thanks in advance. This is the mycelium that I have doubts about: And this one the healthy one:
  6. so i like bird seed the best. my fungus really seems to like the bird seed and colonizes it faster than all other types. every day i look at my jars and take note of individual growth rates. The fungus doesn't seem to like lots of moisture. perhaps that is why they are doing so good with the bird seed. drying that out was a synch. light bulb! hm still like the bird seed better. right now i can't get a fix on optimum temps. moisture seems to be the biggest hindrance to growth. and if i assume the bird seed was the driest then the best temp is like between 80F and say 87F. some of my newest (about 10 days old or so) jars aren't doing so hot. here are my 25 day old jars. do they look like they are where they are supposed to be? i was told that they need 5 more days and then a week to consolidate. just to keep things going so i can continue to learn I'm thinking about making a few more jars of bird seed. Below are my new Jars. As you can see the bird seed is doing outstanding and my oats are not and that's probably because i didn't dry them out enough. waay too much condensation. bird seed is just plain easy and that's why i like it.
  7. This is 6 days later but looks slightly dry and lots of aerial mycelium. I've always used the same recipe but let me know if any of you have experienced this and they turned out alright. I'm about to put a casing on it and hopefully that will rehydrate the substrate a little bit. They look fully colonized though and no odd smells?? No cobweb either? I did use a room heater this time to keep temps around 80f cause it's in the 60s at night in the house and that low temp would be terrible for spawn run and wouldve most likely have stunted growth altogether so I didn't have an option. Still though they look dry, idk...
  8. It has been sitting for 10 days. I still have one tub left that I have not uncovered. Should I let the other incubate for longer ? House sits at 64 degrees I have been using a heating pad used for sore muscles but it only stays on for 30 min increments. I turn it on a few times in the morning and a few at night when I'm home from work.
  9. Hey guys...cakes starting to pin. The mycelium is growing in small white dots on the surface of the cake especially towards the bottom. Reminds me of snow. Any ideas what is causing this? I am assuming it is fine just never seen it before. Thanks.
  10. FIRST TIME DOING THIS Alright guys (or girls or whoever), I am an inexperienced mush grower, but have dabbled in microgreens and other plants and thought I should give it a go after trying shrooms the first time. Loved it. Anyway, I followed the PF Tek and used PE6 from (non-sponsor vendor), and it's been about four-five days and no sign of Mycelium yet. The temperature of the cabinet I have them in got to 104-105 once for less than an hour and also has been getting to mid 90's once or twice for a short time. I keep one cabinet door open and the heater inside on and it stays at 77.4F which seems just right. My roommates keep closing the door on accident and that's when it gets too hot. The cakes look kinda gray and clumpy towards the bottom of the jar, but as I said before.. no sign of myc. Do I wait it out for another week? Or do you guys think they experienced thermal death? Any tips also would be greatly appreciated, I'd like to get some boomers for myself and some friends.
  11. Hi Guys, I have attempted my first LC a few weeks ago. I am now swirling my jars daily and starting to see things growing inside. When I swirl them I see these thin filament kind of things float by. I am assuming this is mycelium, but it doesn't look like nearly enough. It has been 3-4 weeks now. I used honey and gypsum for the lc. You can see some pictures I made here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/bVLD7rtSZSjkRvGg1 I wonder if this is going the right way? Any feedback is welcome. Thanks
  12. The myc is beautiful

    From the album Pan Cyan Hawaii

    It's hard to get a good picture of this, but I think it's beautiful the way mycelium spreads in LC. It branches out like little fluffy clouds. It looks almost like a part of the human nervous system. I had the chance to see The Bodies exhibit in Las Vegas. It has preserved human bodies and organs. They managed to preserve the nerves and nerve endings of the nervous system - just that, no flesh or skin or anything - and it looked like this. Beautiful, methinks.
  13. So, after putting my jars in a box on the fridge I have white all over the one that I just multi spored from a BHT print. I did the nocc totally nonsterile in open air and everything so am amazed to not have green all over the jar lol. Can someone tell me if this is cobweb, or if I lucked out on it please? Thanks!
  14. Is the stuff at the bottom of the jar mycelium? Looks different then the other stuff.... not fluffy white... Thanks!
  15. Is this mycelium contaminated?

    Inoculated 1/2 pint jars of GT spores about 2 weeks ago and was wondering if the mycelium is contaminated. I used brf tek, stored at room temperature, I smelled the jar and it doesn't have any foul odor.
  16. Pretty gnarly formation made by the mycelium growing over the verm rolled layer. Could it somehow be from the design on my jars? Or maybe I touched those spots? Seems to perfect of a design to be the latter I think. Pretty cool either way haha what do you guys think?
  17. Possible Trich?

    Hey guys...is this trich? Any input appreciated thanks!
  18. Possible Contamination?

    Hey guys so...the whole jar is colonized, however there is a defined white circle at one of inoculation points. Is this a possible contamination? I could not find any contams that resembled this. Any input would be appreciated! Thanks
  19. hi guys new to the community in more than a few ways. what better way to introduce myself than show my newbie build/tek here these are my pf tek cakes waiting to fruit: First run here for me, still yet to get a first flush. Have a friend helping me, inoculation and in-jar cultivation/consolidation came out pretty solid. Maybe 2 or 3 pins on these babies thus far, feeling pretty good besides being inexperienced with what I assume is the mycelium that's growing in fuzzy white on the cakes. Do they look healthy? Is mycelium ok? If not ideal, how can I prevent it from cultivating my cakes? I've read less CO2, drill more holes closer to perlite. Less humidity? More fanning? Last questions is where I am keeping them. They are currently under my desk which I sit at quiet often. I mist them about 4-5 times a day and fan them with the fan on the left side for about 4-5 minutes, then put the lid on which has plenty holes drilled in it. I keep an AC on in my room that tries it's damn best to regulate 70 degrees Fahrenheit. TLDR: If it's not too early to tell, how am I doin? Thanks a million.
  20. Can anyone tell me if this is ready to fruit? It's been going since August 13th and I still see a patch of black on the middle and I can't tell if that's ok or not, I do notice some spots of metabolites in the corners but it shouldn't be taking this long

    Is that What I think it is, It has been 1 week. Getting impatient.
  23. Help with cobweb in mono tub

    So 8 days ago I brought my mono tub into fruiting conditions. I followed mush zombies mono tub tek and everything was PERFECT up until the 3rd day when I started noticing this weird white blotch in the center of my casing. It was small maybe the size of a quarter and near it was a faint outline of mold starting near the cobweb. It was a very light green and was the start of trichoderma in assuming. Well I scooped both spots out and starting using 3% h202 and was self fanning from then on. Also I wanna note that I used a box fan on setting 1 and had it aimed toward the monotub for its FAE. A few days after that I noticed trich forming in the center but was still small, no other spot had green so I scooped it out again and kept using hydrogen peroxide. So yesterday I decided to put a little salt on the top of the casing and use half hydrogen peroxide and water for misting. I still have the box fan pointing toward the mono tub but I have the box lid slightly pryed open to get more air exchange. It's been a few days and I don't smell anything anymore. Can anybody guide me from here? Im really trying my best not to lose this monotub... I don't have any signs of contamination right now and also should I keep the lid open and manually fan or can I shut it and still have the fan point towards it?
  24. Is this mycelium or a contamination?

    I have a friend who.... Ok no wait, SWIM has some..... Ok ok, I myself alone have paid for a grow kit for psychedelic mushrooms online. It shipped here pretty quickly. I looked at each substrate jar when the kit came in, see, I figured I'd pay a little extra to skip the step of sterilizing the jars and everything. For a small ammount, the site I bought from shipped them promptly as I previously mentioned. Problem is last night, I looked at all my jars again for some reason. Just excited about growing I guess? Anyway, I haven't nocced any of them, and in fact the spores aren't even in my possession yet. However, I noticed one jar had a big green spot in it, but no white which confused me. I threw it away because I just didn't feel I should have kept it. 2 of the jars however, both appear to be growing mycelium?! Is there an airborne bacteria that creates a white blanket on these substrates if the jar is contaminated and improperly sterilized? SWIM (that's someone who IS me! Lol) would appreciate advice or help of any kind!
  25. Hey there to all my senpais (don't worry I just like to act like I'm retarded). I a new hobbyist in the southeastern US in the beginning of my first incubation.. I've had a good bit of expeirence with hallucinogens but I grew tired of paying for them and waiting for them to pass through so I planned a long tolerance break from everything and dedicated a lot of time to learning and getting a home grow started. Now I have 7 nice little 1/2 pint brf cakes with about 6 days of growth. So here comes my question. I'm trying and failing to leave my cakes alone., but I've observed my mycelium to be a bit uneven... I guess. Two jars have long sections of what appears to be rhizomorph from my verm top layer to the bottom of the cake. But it is tinted ever so slightly yellow. I may just be obsessing but just curious if you guys think so too. Doubt the photo quality is decent enough. Also, is if normal to have big runs like that and only spotting mycelium in the other jars?
