Just a picture I took today. Doesn't look at all like any mycelium I have researched on the internet.
Most of this agar I had to toss due to non-sterail techniques.

The photo is not super clear.

 

I would let it go for a few more days. If it doesn't turn color and begin to sporulate, you may have fungal mycelium.

Only one way to find out. Just keep experimenting.

I can't help myself, whenever I have that question I add a piece of sterilized wood on top of the (mycelium???) and see what it does.................. it looks healthy..........but what it is............is a good question.

FWIW, it looks like "plates" that I've grown. That doesn't mean it's the right mycelium though. :biggrin:

Exactly................exactly right Cat............ I second that............ After the passing of years...still I wonder......."what the hell is growing here now?"

 

It's all part of the works and the pro's themselves still do it too..............(ego's removed and truths be told.........)

This is a recent picture I took of my Reshi spores on agar.
Sure do hope they are a go.
If someone with experience could let me know if this is what Reishi mycelium looks like let me know.
Thanks

Rieshi mycelium is linear not very aired on agar. It is also a very tough mycelium, it makes a very sturdy mycelium mat on agar and on its substrates.
So the photos you have posted look correct for Rieshi.
