Are they alright?

Question

Hey guys, so I was thinking this is just excretion of metabolites, but I'm not sure what would be causing that. Any ideas what this is? Thanks

Brusing, bacteria, or high humidity. I think I see pins on the left one

Those are very bacterial. You have pins though so that's good. 

 

FYI metabolites are not normal , they are only present when the myceilum is stressed, usually from bacteria

What is the indicator for being bacterial? They smell fine and produced fruits with a nice set of pins. Are the fruits still edible? Thanks

Thick thick white myc like that. Bacterial subs often have no smell at all believe it or not. They often will flush OK, and the fruits are fine to eat yes

Thanks for the heads up. For the future, what is the typical cause of bacterial contam? Subs looked fine when I took out of jars and put into terrarium. Thanks

      Got my PE today thanks!

      First time working with a swab based innoculation vector, Agar and LC are not options atm, are they any methods i could use besides making a single Grain jar then doing G2G?

      All that stuff can be found in the salt water fish section. You would have to read what is used in the ph adjust kit.

      U should definitely not have any snakes calling over ur sub. I once read that diatonicmaceous earth would scratch reptiles belly plates & cause them to dehydrate. That's what it said.lol   Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Read my teks. None of them use gypsum at all. Then look at the results. I'm positive I can grow many species of mushrooms. Not just cubes. It can definitely be skipped! Although you do need to adjust pH with most bulk substrates. You can use gypsum to adjust pH, I just prefer using calcium hydroxide for that since it instantly adjusts pH. Gypsum is a pH buffer meaning it helps keep pH stable, but this is not effective against mycelium, as mycelium does excrete acidic enzymes as it decomposes the substrate. But because it is a buffer it doesn't really increase pH as much as calcium hydroxide will. It more so just keeps it steady in dirt.
