It looks like a mutant blob. It's edible. Looks like the caps in that third pic are sterile, too. No spore drop, even open that wide. The gills look white.  real pretty flush though. Nice!

Harvest each cake as it is ready, and dunk after you harvest. You don't have to do them all at the same time :)

Don't redunk. They'll either fruit or tam.

I can redunk and roll the ones that have all ready fruited right?? Because I just dunked them. Just leave the ones that have stalled alone till they fruit or not? is there a easy way to get the vermiculite off of the ends of the stem do i need to cut it off or just eat it and not worry about it. Cant wait till i do some zombie tubs. they look so much better or should i do something else??

Looking like a little bacterial blotch going on with that deformed cap. I've had flushes with bacterial blotch (psuedomonas sp.) That were sterile. As for the blob it's a weird one.

I can't tell you if it's safe to eat or not. Given that most mushrooms in the supermarket have very slight bacterial blotch, I don't pay a lot of attention to it as long as the caps aren't oozing or rotting off from large colonies of the bacteria. But everyone is different. Who knows it could give you a throat infection.

None of them look too weird no rotting or oozing.

      Learning a lot reading your posts keep it up.

      Oh I apologize I was confused as to which thread I was commenting in. My last reply was about actual fruiting chambers and conditions. You are incubating. You need to maintain 77-80* air temperatures during incubation but do not sit your bags directly on a heating source.

      Makes sense. So do you recommend that I put the tote away from the heater so it falls back to room temperature? I know contams are higher risk at higher temps but I also read it promotes healthier mycelium and faster colonization times. I thought I'd give it a shot since my other bags failed on the shelf

      That is due to a phenomenon known as dew point. The air in the fruiting chamber is much warmer than the plastic of it. This causes the moisture in the air to condense on the walls. Like brining a cold can of soda outside during the summer. the goal is to cool the air in the fc to about that of the plastic. 68-72 degrees.  Condensate almost always indicates temps too high
