Has anyone had the experience with Pan Cyan mycelia changing weird colors and still being healthy? I had seen this mentioned on the shroomery, but still refuse to post there.
PF cakes changed from a white/grey to a white/blue/green/yellowish color....then used as spawn for straw/dung. The beds only had the white/grey-typical Pan myc.-.
Have some new beds, but the myc. is getting the colors again....while at 50% colon. on the dung/straw.
Has anyone here seen this? There are no contams--This particular Pan seems VERY strong. A 2 month old tray refuses to give up after repeated re-casing.
Is this just a trait of some Pans, or should I screw around w/ them? They seem to be plenty wet, but not too....
Anyhow, thanks for any tips, and try the Pans if you have not- LONG high w/ great visuals....

The funny thing is, the Pan. mycelia seems to be all white on agar. Who knows...I will post pics of the next flush.

Major Millet sez:"***NOTE*** Pan mycelium on castings WILL look like contams to most of you, it always does to me. There will be patches of olive green and brown growth, along with white cottony growth. To convince yourself that it is not green mold I suggest you swipe a patch or two with a piece of white paper. Notice that there are no spores on the paper. It is mycelium silly..... "
I guess he has the same experience.

I want to try these when I can, so this is good info. I appreciate it, big fish.
if one was only ready to try one type, which would you recommend? The new cambos ralph has? cyans, azures?
