I started some spores on agar and got beautiful growth. In the center, densest part, I noticed a blue tint to the mycelium, down in the bottom.
It doesn't seem to be spreading. Could it be some kind of mold or is it acutally the mycelium?
I'm not taking any risks, so I transferred a few clean edges of mycelium to a new plate. Here you can see where one or two circles of mycelium are doing the same thing.
I am going to keep transferring until I get something pure white. But I am curious... is this even contamination? It's not spreading or taking over. It doesn't seem to be competing. And it looks like it is coming from deep inside.
What do yall think?
