Blue Contam (Plus pin porn)
    #11175632 - 10/03/09 05:13 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Is this Cobwebb?? :malamute:

Ok, seriously.  I have 3 jars now; and two fruiting with this.

3 weeks ago i fruited two pint jars to two pints of verm, coir, coffee, gypsum.  One has a lil pin on it now; weak myc growth on both.  The jars i fruited had this blue growth on them that i thought was bruising, and didnt notice till they were done colonizing.  Thats why they're fruited seperatly.

Then i have three jars now growing; all with the same blue stuff.  This time tho one jar exploded with growth; so it had to sit while other jars caught up, so i watched the blue show up; and then watched it grow.  Its mostly on a little ball of growth in the jar; but now im noticing it elsewhere.

The pics suck; but it shows.  Its what looks like bruising... but i promise its not. I dont smell no funk when i cracked it just now.

BTW; Its Rye, strain Ecuador.

Pics...


This last one is just another tub, started same time, pin porn...

pics are blurry, but it looks okay to me. and if the mycelium is growing then the casing is healthy. doesn't look like mold to me. or contams

casings are fine, but they were used with a jar that had this blue crap.  I dont know what it is; but i dont think its fine.  The longer it sets; the more the blue grows.  I've never seen blue grow... ever.  When i bruise the blue; it goes black; or dark dark dark blue.

if it's a greenish-blue then its probably contams. did you violently shake the jar? sometimes that will bruise the mycelium, thats why i prefer to roll my jars instead of shake, less chance for bruising.

but go ahead and wait it out. put it in a different area away from the rest of the jars and casings.

contams. sorry to say. but lets be proactive about this....best thing to do is re-PC it, or boil bath. that will kill what contams there are that are growing, then when you go to open it nothing living will escape. or you can just go outside when you open it and dump it out. i live in the country so i just go in my back yard and open it and dump in the woods. if your in a dorm or appartment it might be a little difficult. but DO NOT OPEN IN YOUR GROW ROOM. do you have more spores to start over???

Lol, yea... i just wonder what contams there are that are blue.  And why it didnt really show on my cakes i spawned.  I'll have to see how they do.  But yea; plenty of culture growing; and to grow.  Not my first time... just first time with weird contam. Thanks tho.

So A) What is it if its possible to tell and B) What contams are there like it?

Exactly. Blue is bruising. Bluish-green is also sometimes bruising. Green can even be bruising on occasion.

People start freaking out when they see something that isn't completely white. You learn how to spot trich in a hurry once you've lost a few jars or a monotub filled with 10 lbs of horse shit. :shrug:

So no such thing as blue contam... hmm, must just be my location of the jars drying em out quicker or something stupid.  Cause some of the jars have stalled now, at like 98%.  And the one i shook and its growing again; but slowly.  And some more jars i've had growing have a little bit of blueing in them.  And its not blueish green, if anything its a blueish grey; but deff a lighter shade of blue in little splotches...

But if you say theres no such thing as blue contam... then theres no such thing.  I've gotten red lipstick, and trich, and some otherone... so we'll see.  Ill spawn all i got (like 6 qts) tomorrow to a nice coir/verm/coffee mix and see what happens.  My tub pinning now is kinda suckin; shoulda put wax paper on it.  But my little cakes (that had the blueing that i fruited seperatly) are doin good....

From the Pic It appeared that you're grains were a little on the dry side in you're jars.. This could cause bruising ..It is odd that the growth is carying the color with it but I would say nothing to worry about!! I'm with yeah on the Kinda Suckin thing..I can't get my Mono-tubs to produce one decent flush They just keep sort of growing clusters..anyway good luck.......e
