Did i fuck it up???
    #11286921 - 10/20/09 09:40 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hi there folks!

Well, my trays were looking like this before i put them in FC:




And i think i fucked up cause i misted them, like cakes. It changed color a little bit and formed a transparent slime here and there. I don't know if it wass excess moisture. I fanned all day long today, and this slime has vanished or was absorbed. The trays are looking like this now:



Are they ok??? Please say yes... :frown:

Hummmm yeah, i thought that it wouldn't do any harm cause it's such a small area...


And about the misting, that was wrong? Should i mist the substrate? I had the impression that it made no good to the myc... The growth hAS slowed down.

just kiddin
they look ok to me too

as for the "slime" it was probably just water
that pooled up on your sub

to take care of this you can dab it up with a clean paper towel

I see lots of little bright white specs on the myc, those are hyphal knots.  look great to me. looks like the misting revived your myc, its bright.

you should have pins in a few days just keep doing what your doing and dont let water pool up on your substrate.  lightly mist directly on the sub, LIGHTLY! :stoned:

Thx folks! :wink: But i'm worried still...


I have been using the search engine for the past 3 hours trying to find a a case similar to mine and i couldn't find any answers.

I've read about overlay and learned that it's rare to see, and it can't happen in uncased substrates like mine.

Is it normal when the mycelium doesn't look fluffy anymore?? Compare the pictures please, before i started misting it was looking great and fluffy, now it seems to have dried out, even though im misting and fanning several times a day, it just looks like it has stalled and turned a bit grayish. I regret for started misting it!!

The trays are in a shotgun style FC build as described in the tek, using perlite, etc... They are sitting in there for 1 week now.

Bulk was 70% coir, 15% coir organic compost, 15% worm castings, 10% gypsum. Water was poured until field capacity, when i squeezed hard jut a few drops fell from it. Used cakes as spawn. What should i do? Should i scratch it or dunk it?? Experieced growers please, help me!

scratching is outdated info so a dunk may be in order.

no scratching...  could be worth a dunk if you didn't do that before putting into FC in the first place.  stop freakin out man, that blue is just fine, some normal bruising...

Wow i just filled one of the trays with water and it just absorbed it like a sponge! 

Then i poured another full bottle and it started to float, using a jar for keeping it under water.

Beto:

Take a q-tip and dampen it with some water (sterile, prefrably) and wipe at it. If it comes off on the q-tip, they're spores. If they don't, its bruising.

When in doubt, it's an easy test to see if its a part of the mycelium or something on top of it.

Wooow again!! One of the trays had a hole on the bottom, then i removed the brick to transfer it to a new tray and for my surprise, i noticed TONS and TONS of hyphal knots on all sides of the brick!!! Then i checked the other tray and it's looking the same!!!!

I'm thinking about leaveing them soaking overnight and tomorrow, remove the bricks from the aluminum trays and put them on top of half pint jars! How about it??
