    Two of the agar dishes I have going have a white almost blob growing a little faster than the spec of myceluim I dropped in yesterday, These two have this I am going to watch it grow out for a ay if it is strain specific. Sorry for the terrible photos this is the best I could do. Louisiana albino and golden teachers all other strains are fuzz only I suspect bacteria? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yeah I did thanks. The ability to test grain to agar when they are slow is pretty awesome. I never got an answer but the suspected ones were consistently throwing down some sort of bacteria whether it be good or bad I just tossed it and started on anew.
