Spikey growth is rhizomorphic mycelium. It is healthy, vigorous mycelial growth. People drool over jars like this.
Don’t listen to the other misinformed comments here. Good job on the good grow.
Thanks for the positivity!
While i disagree it is bacterial as the other person said, i kind of also disagree that rhizo is better than tomentose, but i do appreciate the kind words, i'm not trying to be a dick.
I played ALOT with agar lately and tomentose can turn rhizo and vice versa because of many environmental factors.
Regarding grains i just have a feeling that myc turn rhizomorphic like this when the grains get too dry even if there is no contamination in the jars. It probably tries to move faster because it hopes to find wetter grains
I'll post updates after spawning
I wish my jars looked like this. Looks great.
Looks like strong rhizo growth, man.
Shake it see if it recovers. Smell it then decide for yourself.
Why is this downvoted? Seems like generally good advice to me
The smell test is not definitive. See the link I posted.
The spikey growth indicates bacteria
Is it a general rule? Cause i don't see other signs of bacteria (metabolites, wetspot etc). Not saying it's not, i'm just asking. I spawned jars like this before witgout any issue but i just now thought to ask
Spikey growth is a telltale sign of bacteria
You have absolutely no clue what your talking about. Please stop spreading misinformation. Those jars are amazingly healthy.
Great job op. Keep up the good work.
I mean, I linked a source from this sub’s namesake website. Everyone is saying I’m wrong, but not why.
The pictures in that thread on the shroomery look just like op’s jar. I was just trying to educate and help out.
You can totally spawn bacterial jars, but I would do a shoebox
Edit: I don’t understand the downvotes
Because rhizomorphic growth is NOT a sign of bacteria. Hence, the downvotes.
Healthy rhizo looks different to me. The photos in the link show the difference quite well.
MSS, LC, G2G or other?
This is after a shake, right?
About 5 days after a shake. It looked 80-90% colonized vefore shaking
