Bruising or contamination

Question

This tub has been in the fruiting chamber for about 10 days. I have a few pins on one side that seem to have the caps cracking because of too much fanning (i think). Also im noticing a lot of bruising. Lmk if you guys think its contamination. It smells completely normal to me. Its rye spawned to horse manure and the strain is cambodian. I still dont see too many knots forming which is concerning but the rye grain was pretty wet which could be why the pinning is being delayed. Have any of you seen this coloration on your tubs?

Yeah this doesn't look good. The humidity is definitely to low also, probably due to over fanning.

Im just trusting my intuition here and say it is not. I dont smell anything and dont see any type of mold spores. I trully believe that all the fast moving air particles from using my box fan on max speed to fan for 2 minutes multiple times throughout the day have bruised the mycelium and also cracked the caps. This was not happening before i used this method of fanning. Ill update you guys when i find out for sure. This is a tough call for me :/

I deff feel like i fucked my humidity with all the fanning causing the mycelium to be stressed and therefore oxidizing the psilocin. Im attaching another photo so all of you can see the blue bruising with a tint of green to it. If this tub is not contaminated and fruits well, i want everyone to learn and know that too much fanning will cause such a thing and is nothing to worry about. If not, the members are right and the tub gets thrown out.

I'm on the fence on this one, I've seen mold and bruising that looked just like that before. No harm in leaving it to find out but for god sakes get some moisture in that tub!

I remember someone using an actual fan for fanning, but they only did it once at the very beginning of putting it into Fruiting conditions. They didn't keep using the actual fan after the one time. They gave their tub a blast of air for several minutes to get the evaporation process jumping and went to normal fanning after the one time fan blast. I've never used a fan for fanning any of my grows. But is interesting to watch how it works for you.

I have tried a small 4" fan blowing a few times a day on timer through filter material. Always ended in green. Totally enclosed but those green ones are pretty opportunistic

@Mush123 Dont worry about it. Looks like bruising to me. It happens all the time. Happens to me when I put a fan on a tub and walk away and forget im fanning. so it will get dried out, then when you mist to re hydrated it, it will bruise if you don't fan again. Here is a tub i had that happen to me. It mite not be a great first flush but second one should be bigger. not the normal way but that's what happens to me.

The green is getting bigger bud. Did you moisturize it?

@mushmouth i started misting more and have not used the box fan. Humidity is back up to almost 100. The green/blue does not seem to be spreading.

I hope you keep at this friend I am very curious to see the outcome of this one. Hope this turns out well for you. Wouldn't want any wasted spores now do we?

      Hey I found some of these telephone brand packets in an Asian market yesterday. They advertise as 25g but when I weighed it they come to a measly 17g, just fyi Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      The tyvek envelopes are the same thickness as the tyvek house-wrap used for waterproofing buildings. The suit tyvek works but it is extremely flimsy and a major pain to work with. I would suggest having a member from the USA send you some envelopes, or do some research to find out what grade or thickness of tyvek is used for house-wrap and buy it online. Your most economical option is probably to ask someone to send you envelopes. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      Dam. I've never seen it in cool sheets like that. I'm not sure. I would imagine it's all the same but I know the envelopes I use are very different to the suits other people use.

      Hey mushmouth, thanks for the input here, guessing the tyvek will give me more options regarding jar opening size as I can cut to fit? I can definitely get hold of Ball jars. Are these sources good on the Tyvek front, is this the stuff I'm after?? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tyvek-Fabric-by-the-metre/dp/B00JBBOAM8/ref=pd_sim_201_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=DS324T5MT3YHYRRFS1CJ http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tyvek-Fabric-Pack-of-10-A4-sheets-Tyvek-Fabric-43-gsm-/272517007214?hash=item3f7347876e:g:YDwAAOxy7vJTdTXn

      Yes, sounds like you know what I'm talking about. Its actually "Earthwalkers mini a/b" from over at the nexus, and it works wonders for cleaning up acacia extractions.    Yes, I would try to break it down somehow then do some freeze thaws. Then while its in the strong basic soup use something like a potato masher to break it down further. You just want to be able to lyse all the cells to retrieve all the goodies, if you don't get it broke down enough you may not get it all out. There's nothing wrong with letting it soak in the soup for a day or 2 to break down either, the longer, then the further it'll break down.
