Contaminated/Questions

Question

mycoandbjj

Image 1 is a my first tub - Image 2&3 is second tub - Image 4 third

Alright big dogs its my time growing and I think one of my monotubs is contaminated (Image 4). I used a Mycowilly tutorial on Vimeo and my tubs have polyfill in them from the start. He says they'll pin in a few days if you fan and mist often but I also see people say not to open the tub and let it the full colonization take place. I think its been about 7 days, I've had them in some natural light during the day, was fanning but backed off and my room temp has been like 70-85 f probably.

Do I just let these bad boys sit and keep colonization?
Should i just stick them in my closet for a week?
Mist and water more?

Not sure on the tech u used .mz has a great one for monos .i highly recommend .It should be covered in tin foil until full colonization .then uncovered  cased and placed into fruiting looks like u may have some cobweb id up the fae and hit it with some hydro.unless I'm missing something

he said you dont need casing. His name is Willy Myco has a decent following for teks and what not on vimeo. His youtube was removed.

You do need a casing if rh is going to be below 90% sorry your YouTube expert failed you.

. Casing helps keep your rh up and tams down and imo helps production .and is very easy u can use seed mix with a little picking lime been awhile but it was less then 7 bucks at Wally World . the techs here are easy and very reliable mz has made it like a recipe so even guys like me can't fail.

With the temps you are running right now, I would case it with a sterilized casing. Cover in foil, poke some holes in the foil and put micropore tape over the holes. It may have already tammed but I don't think your temps are low enough to induce pinning. It takes evaporation and temp drop to get them pins.

I think I got that right. If not one of these fine fellas will correct me.

Do not put a substrate into incubation with a casing on it. There is a high chance of contamination doing so. If you use a casing, apply it when it is time to fruit. 

The casing protects the mycelium from drying out. That is what it is there for with mushrooms that don’t require a casing to fruit (read that again. They don’t require a casing to fruit. They require a casing so the mycelium does not dry out if RH is below 90%)

i cant really help you salvage your tubs you made from the advice of an internet marketer that is only making videos to help sell other people’s products, and in turn make commissions. That person does not have the knowledge necessary to be making videos or tutorials, but does have the knowledge to sell you products.

my best advice is to just let them go and see what you get, but yes start over with a better tutorial.

Thanks @Mush Zombie I am exhausted. No more answering questions I think I know the answer to. I don't want to spread misinformation.

      See I asked about this before about coir thinking it was structure and was told coir is slow nutes. I would say let's get our ducks in a row, but would hate us all chasing the wrong tangent. Perhaps some collaborative testing? Just not sure how to go about it. Any ideas?

      I had to look.🙄 And now I regret it.😉

      No.   My understanding is they simply provide some form of nutrient to help pull the mycelium growth through the coir substrate.   Fruiting is a response to starvation and evaporation from what I understand so the less nutrients the shorter the time to fruit.    How much time should you wait after adding lime to take a new Ph reading?    I would assume adding untreated coir to high Ph coir would bring down the Ph level to an acceptable level.   If I am wrong in this assumption let me know.   If I should toss it let me know that as well.

      Thankfully bugs haven't been a issue here. But damn, how to rid a dwelling of powder mildew(if that's what I'm seeing)? Already tossed the house plants it was found on. Afraid I may need to vent the tent outside.

      Do the grinds buffer high pH?
