After first attempt at grow i failed...I just took one spore,and ate 4 fresh mushrooms and went into stratosphere(was very good night)The spore was golden mamoth, and i used it for projects that ended as disaster. But i have some heritage from that spore...I ve had only one quarter of spore left and i made four syringes and inoculated four jars of corn, only available grain at that moment(and that was one evening job).I used simplest internet method for corn preparing as substrate(easy popcorn tek, i think)...They started to colonize and mycellium looked very strong.

So i have two problems and questions?

1.One jar is smaller and i noticed blueish part of mycelium...Now almost all have this blueing...On one of them,aside from blueing, i noticed weird net,like other organism(you'll notice on picture,weblike structure).So here are pictures,is this contaminated?If it is contaminated than stop reading :)

2.I have 20 liter box,fit for monotub...I planed to make mini mono tub with this mycelium...Problem is,it is colonizing very slow,and im afraid if it sits for a while it will get contaminated(more than 3 weeks)...I think that top layer of corn is dried...So

Do i have to wait for whole jar to get colonized or i can take out uncolonized corn and use mycelium, or maybe mix uncolonized corn together with mycelium corn.

Or wait for whole jar colonization witch is very slow, and prone to contaminants,and its almost month now....

Shake the jars vigorously.  Wait a couple days, and you should see the mycelium recovering.  That will also finish colonization a lot faster.  You should shake grain jars around 50%, then once more when fully colonized to test for hidden contams.

 

I see no contams, and the corn looks good (not too wet).  I think you are in good shape.

Jammer needs to get me like 20 more likes a day................... :biggrin:

 

Which is why I was asking what species first......if they were woodlover I'd say shake ONE and see. 

 

I don't think they are contaminated either...at least not visibly and that mycelium looks rhizo and ready to go.

That means i can mix this up with supstrate and make monotub?Im afraid to shake,i contam one corn like that...Psylocibe,golden mamoth,not woodlover.Its pretty strong :)

When you shook that jar in the past and it got contaminated it was actually already contaminated before you shook it.  You just couldn't see it. 

 

Shaking a jar with no visible signs of contamination is a good way to see if there are any hidden contaminants.  Another way to think about it is, If you see a contaminant growing after the shake, then you saved a bad jar from going in your substrate!

 

I've had jars look great and then after a shake they don't recover and a mold takes over.  It's good to get jars like that out of the way before you keep investing time into them.

 

Chances are, your jars are fine and you will shake them and they will recover.

^^Extremely well-said.  Yes, shaking will reveal just how clean your jars are.  It's better to know before you spawn them to a bunch of bulk.

 

I think they look very healthy.  I don't see any bacterial signs or mold.  And the shake will finish up colonization.

Man. if I could do that, I would be pimping "likes" all day, lol.   Actually, I don't even know how the "likes" system works.  I run out of them, too.

I shook them vigorously,broken all of mycelium,now i see just fuckin corn :/ Hope they recover,they are colonizing almost month...Im afraid it will end up in mold,especially because it made contact with polyfill in the lid...We'll see :) Thanks on advices :)

What species is this Serbica?

Psylocibe Serbica is endemic and extremly rare specie of psylocibe cubensis,impossible to grow indoor...And man,those picked from nature are so potent that chances are that you will walk with imaginary leprikon for 8 hours :)

I'm a child of Slavic immigrants to the U.S. .........................

 

And leprechauns, dwarves, gnomes, and other beings are cool by me.............as long as they don't raid the mushroom patches.........

 

Better to find out that your grain was contaminated BEFORE wasting a big bulk substrate...........

 

Good vibes coming at you and the fungi..........
