Define mycelium??? I said Mushroom Mycelium in order to avoid the confusion. If you are posting wanting to know if you should salvage some mold that starts out as white, well you are correct. It is mycelium. Just not what you think or are hoping for. Maybe I'm wrong though, Trichoderma mycelium may be what you are shooting for. Although this place has many experts on growing trich, It may not be the best place to ask how to salvage it as we are mostly about growing Mushrooms. Maybe In the Grasssroots forum you can get better advice on growing such?
Do you know what Koh Samui mycelium looks like? If you did I don't think you would be asking if it has a chance against whatever your are cultivating. Maybe there is a spot right where you injected that might have some of that desired mycelium. But just being honest, there is no chance of saving anything there! If I'm wrong I hope you like steak, cuz I will buy you a steak dinner.
You are asking for help....Don't shoot the messenger please!
"I am currently growing for my first time."
Who shot the messenger? I literally just asked "What is the white fuzzy stuff in the first picture? To me it looks just like mycelium." Maybe I should have clarified that to me it looks just like "mushroom" mycelium because I have no experience to know what Trichoderma, lipstick, cobweb or any other mold looks like - to me the white fuzz that is growing is indistinguishable from mushroom mycelium based on pictures I have seen online - but I've never seen any of this in person. That's why I am asking for more details/clarification.
And clearly I am not asking how to "salvage some mold". In my first post I said "one of them just started growing mycelium rapidly (despite the bacteria). The strain is Koh Samui" - clearly I thought this was Koh Samui mycelium because that's the spore I injected, and sources I found elsewhere said it is an aggressive strain that is strong against contamination. I believe you that it is unsalvageable, but maybe for a new grower who's never seen any of this before more information is needed than "Uhhhhh I don't see any mushroom mycelium in these pics." Okay, well, then what is growing? I don't know any different.
I truly do not appreciate you mocking me. Is this how administrators on this site treat everyone? I gotta be honest, I'm very put off by the unfriendliness of your response.
Thank you pastyoureyes, your posts are informative and helpful.
