Hey folks, I went to take the plastic off this tub last night, and I see these little Lion's Mane looking things popping up all over the surface of my sub. I spent like three hours last night trying to ID this, no dice. Do any of you awesome people have any idea what these white cauliflower looking things are?

What strain are you trying to grow?  it almost looks like overlay or blobs, or both.  Hard to tell with the photos provided.  Give it some time, if it's a contamination, it will take over Quickly.  How long has it been colonizing?

Hey Mush, it's a PE...pretty much just plain ol PE not like APE or #6 or anything like that. It has been colonizing for about 14 days. I have another strain from the same MSS that I cased and has fruited like a champ, I purposely didn't case this one to see if there was a difference. The little cauliflower looking things had been on there for 4 or 5 days before removing the plastic and placing into fruiting conditions, they've just gotten more pronounced since.

Man I would suspect that's the PE itself before saying it's contaminated, judging by what you're showing in the pictures....I'd say isolate and observe.....

Will do! I've been curious to see what the blobs were all about, maybe I'll get to find out!
