Hi I’ve been trying my luck with agar. I had a good amount of dishes that showed obvious contaminants and a few dishes in it too sure of. Yes, it’s white but it’s cloudy as f*ck and not rhizo. Are these good to eventually use for a grain transfer or are these contams?f494ad89d297933ce727df97a0c6413d.jpg

I'm also on my first try into agar and most of my samples grew the same. I transferred a small piece from the edges to a new plate and after isolating a small piece it seems to show a more rhizo growth pattern. Once that took off I used the first plate in a grain jar. Waiting for it to fruit now.

That’s what I was tracking from the stuff I’ve been reading, just making sure. Thanks bud

I've been trying to figure out if the myc is reaching for fresh air, even with some of my home-made plates.

 

Is there a filter or some type of air exchange on your lid?

I've got several plates that vary between that much fuzz and a little fuzz. Feel free to check out my other thread I have going. I did a transfer today from a good rizo section on 1 plate into 3 new plates.

 

What I'm curious to know also is if the fuzz is fine to use in grain spawn or it is generally not good?

I’m tracking that you should keep on transferring until you get the rhizo.

I'll keep this question short as I don't want to bogart this thread for myself. When I make a couple transfers (say, 3) from good rizo, and then keep transferring from that one, that's fine should that one suddenly get better?
