these pics are kinda hard to see im used to being able to blow these pics up to much larger size. you will know in a few days.  don't throw anything out yet. when you take the lid off is there a smell?  it should smell mushy. there should be no bad smells like chemical or funky smells.  keep us posted

Thank you so much. I sprayed a little bit of water / alcohol on it and now it’s all black. Def smells funny. But now I see pinning on the sides of the cake which looks fine. Would those be safe to consume?

      Hi I’ve recently just joined and I’m looking to start up growing some golden teachers I’m first off getting the grow kits but they seem abit to simple so after that I want to move on to something abit more complex and I just had a question, can you innoculate steralised grain bags and use a expandable twin chamber mushroom growing system? I understand they come with jars but I hear that it’s easy to contaminate and you don’t get a good enough yield so I was hoping to find a way to you the sterilised grain bags and to use the twin chamber but I’m unsure on how this could work and I can’t see anything on YouTube about it

      Oh awsome man! This has to be one of the coolest mushrooms I've ever seen out of a pot. Looks so yellow and fake I thought someone was playing a joke on me.
