Hello everyone. Long time listener, first time caller. So, I inoculated Blue Oyster in WB sterilized quart jars and after 5 days had this growth, which seems to resemble what many people call Cobweb Mold.
Anyhow, I kept reading around, looking at what people say "healthy mycelium" looks like. Mostly it was a thick white, and no images of the first, second and third day of colonization. Well, I figured I'd just roll with it and see what happens. After all the jars were covered in a light blanket of this weblike stuff I shook up the bottles. 4 days later they look like this:
So, I am just trying to understand whether or not both pictures are mycelium, just at different stages of growth, and why it seems that I have put hours and hours of time into internet searches and not just asked the wise folks here. Anyhow, any ideas would be appreciated.
By the way, I also have a batch of Pink Oysters that I did on a subsequent day that are doing the same spider web looking thing as well as some Lion's Mane that after 4 days has started to get the same spider web stuff. If I'm screwing up, at least I'm consistent.
