Hey so I'm on my second flush and I'm starting to see mushrooms dying, I think I'm seeing myc piss but I'm not 100 percent sure. If anyone has experience with whatever is going on here, I'd appreciate some guidance thanks!15577986416674872559391465210624.thumb.jpg.be18191ccdfd852db9477bc1b07a6ca2.jpg

It appears to have enough moisture. So unless you have moved it,  I would guess lack of a liner caused it to stick in the tote and when shrinking it cracked instead of pulling from the sides.

What would you recommend doing? I had already filled up the tub for about 12 hours with water and then drained it when I took that picture. 

 

I'm thinking about cutting it into 4 slices and mixing 75% new sub and trying to spawn 4 bins from it, do you think that would work?

I read somewhere you can colonize easier from spent sub since the mycelium is already developed

I'm not the one to make a recommendation because I'm on my first bulk grow also. I'm just read everything current on this site twice. LOL and I'm still learning. However if I didn't have the panel of experts that are available on this site and I had to make my own choice which is probably wrong, I would try to stuff that crack with pre-moistened sterilized casing. If nothing else it would help prevent further moisture loss from the tote.

I believe what you are describing is called super spawning. However I believe super spawning is not just cutting the cake.you use spent cake to inoculate more substrate. It's broken up and mixed just as colonized grain would be. I would not use it on a suspect grow because you don't know what stopped or stalled this grow.

Hopefully someone with experience will chime in on both of these issues.

      Bought different trash bags and 12 small containers today.   Couldn't find any that had flat bottoms.   They all seem to have that middle raised part to them.    Guess I'll sit down today and see if I can put some colonized grain spawn to substrate without any tams.    It's time to see if the Jalisco will do something.   Wish me luck.

      @SonshynI think it was my own brain fart.  1:6 or possibly 8 uses a lot of sub.  @El_Piraña I will read up on the tek. I can PC almost 42 quarts at a time, but pasteurizing does have its benefits.

      I almost always pasteurize my substrate instead of sterilize. When I started pasteurizing, I would put the sub in quart jars and use my PC without the lid. But that still limited me to 7 qt at a time, maybe 3-4 more quarts if I used a second pot at the same time. I was running into the same problem, couldn’t keep up with making enough sub.  I changed to using large disposable lasagna pans. I would fill up four of those at a time, seal with aluminum foil and put them in the oven. I can’t recall how many qts in each pan, I don’t have my notes with me.  I did get more evaporation with this method so I had to start with slightly extra water so that the end result was field capacity.

      Maybe use the oven instead of the pc ?

      @Moonphasenext ones will be better. So far the first 3 tubs are doing ok. All 3 look like this. I folded the plastic down to help keep the edges from evaping to fast, but left it up enough for some fresh air.  Going to open it up in next day or so. Fingers crossed for tam free even pinset.
