  1. Today
  2. 200 degrees is gonna start breaking down your actives,go lot lower.
  3. Yes my casing is just some left over coir and verm substrate that I used. Worked like a charm. And thanks!
  4. Thanks friends! What would I do without you fine folks? im drying those fellas in my toaster oven on the “warm”setting [<200° F] with the toaster oven door slightly ajar. I put the really tiny dudes in makeshift foil cups on top of the toaster oven since they will presumably dry quicker. Mill be sure to update after the dunk n’ roll! Thanks again!

    Is this a contam or mycelium?Pls help

    That looks super wet I'm having a moisture problem myself. How did it turn out? Did it take longer to colonize? To me it looks perfect the water droplets aren't usually present in pics I seen
  8. Hi I’m new to the site, I'm designing my first grow. I’m researching a glove box tek to build. I was wondering if applying negative pressure would decrease my contamination rate, and what would be the proper way to sterilize my GB? Any options or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    What type contam is this? Happened during spawn run

    Lol. I’m “that guy” that thought he had a clean LC cus the spawn LOOKED clean 😂 haha. Boy was I wrong! And this is why Agar is important.. luckily didn’t put all my eggs in one basket

    What type contam is this? Happened during spawn run

    It could be a whole range diff ones it’s hard to tell. These are ones you should get to know tho like back of your hand: Wet Spot, Sour Rot - Bacillus sp. Bacterial Blotch - Pseudomonas tolaasii (P. fluorescens) ... Cobweb mold or Dactylium Mildew - (Hypomyces sp.) ... Green Mold - Trichoderma harzianum, T. viride, T. koningii. My biggest prob is usually Bacillus, occasional cobweb when I’m not through but yah these are the big ones.

    What type contam is this? Happened during spawn run

    Also- I did not open the contaminated tub in the room the other tub is in. I could tell that whatever it was had already produced spore; would not have been a good idea to open it in the fruiting room

    Hola!

    Welcome to ology, Swantwo3!!!
  13. Yep... fuzzy feet and an abort. All safe to eat.

    Glad it worked out for you.
  15. Fuzzy feet. It's fine. I'd take them all out of the jars, pick the shrooms, put them into a water bath for 24 hours, roll them in coarse vermiculite and put them into a fruiting chamber at 85-95% RH.
  16. I’ve birthday them babies and came across this curly fellow I’ve aptly named “Curly.” He’s pretty massive, but I think this jar might be contaminated w/ that cob web BS. If it is, in fact, contaminated, can Curly be saved or does he need to be put out of his misery and thrown in the garbage ? Also, should I cut off the contaminated mycelium and dunk the jar in a separate container or scrap it completely? Thanks in advance! Pic 1: “Curly” Pic 2: Possible cobweb contam at root of “Curly.“

    B+ general questions

    Hey everybody my bags are finally coming a halt in mushroom production or getting very close to doing so :)what would be the better way to plant these in my back yard can I just put it any old place or are there specific methods y'all do? Got about 1000 grams wet weight super super pleased with this it may not be as much as some people's but for a first time Im stoked on this no contams, no stalling, fast colonizing times, fat fruits and plenty of them!!! I will be back soon because I still have half a syringe of b+ itching to get used a tremendous thank you to everyone who participated in this thread!!

    Hola!

    Very nice broski!Glad to see and welcome yah back into the fold!!!For just jumping back in I envy your jumping back in set up it looks and seems very very clean. You gonna do the BRF cakes to bulk or just cakes?
  19. I now wonder after a through scorching if it is at all possible to maybe “jumpstart” said container by inoculating with a second go around and perhaps what mycelium was in there can be easily metabolized by the dead content because biologically it should be very favorable material for the new mycelium eh????

    Grow Log #4

    Well, I committed the 4 tubs of GT that "partially" froze to the graveyard under the tree in the backyard. I broke one of them up to see what it was like and they all smelled like mush still. Doubtful they would have come out of their injured state. I partially covered them with pine straw. Who knows Mother Nature and life may find a way?

    Much better looks damn good to me.
  22. Any idea what type of contamination this is? I’m going to go ahead and pitch the whole cake, I have removed it from being around the rest of them. This happened during the 10 day run (just opened it today). Could this be contamination that was present in my liquid culture? There is no contamination like this in the containers that were done from spore. This was my only liquid culture tub For comparison, this is the tub that was next to it. In a trash bag as well, 10 days. From spore.

    10 days into the run

    So, one week in fruiting and still no pins/knots. Myc *does* seem to be changing, in terms of pattern/appearance. Humidity is good, added a fan to the room for better air circulation. I’ll check in with you guys in another few days..

    Re-cooking spawn bags

    Yup. They’re substrate. My bad on that mix up but I went ahead and just put them into quart jars and re-cooked before I spawned to be safe. 1:1 spawn/sub. Re-cooking didn’t seem to mess up the moisture etc. Let ya know how it goes! Lol

    First time experiment

    Came up with a nice sifter to separate the sunflower works great and is perfect amount for 7 quart jars.

    Pre making jars

    So went to the PO and the material is completely different I am sure it will work now weird that if you follow directions without deviation it works. Update tomorrow when they cool off thanks for the help and encouragement.

    I hope that’s all it is. Keep your head up and stay positive.
