One flush then contam
    #1463473 - 04/16/03 01:04 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I posted another post a day or two ago asking why my dog had tons of little pins, with little to no response, I realized that most are not aborts. All of these small pins came after my dog picked the first small flush, about 10-12 shrooms. Everything was perfect!! Everything was colonizing like crazy and pinning, the sides of the terramium were moist, the temp around 77 degrees. Then today, my dog whines to me that it looks like things are getting contaminated. How could this occur? It always happens after he picks the first few shrooms, and then everything in the terrarium gets contaminated too it seems like. The contams are only in a small area, almost like where the first ones were picked. On two of the cups it is kind of gray in a small spot. One had a light brownish-yellow color in a spot. Any help would be great

In order to receive specific answers to your questions you must provide details. What are you casing with? How is it being prepared? Fanning? Misting?

The mycelium goes blue and then blackish.... sometimes a little green where you pick the shrooms.

Wait it out.

Sorry dog,
First off, The BRF cake was used, and the casing is done using the Sea of Shrooms method in the little cups. I did exactly like i was supposed to, vermiculite bottom, crumbled cake, and Jiffy Mix top. It is a perlite humidified chamber, so I rarely ever mist, and I was fanning about once every 2-3 days.

That is your problem. You should fan about 2-3 times a day. I have found that contamination is more common when there isn't enough air exchange.

I'd have to agree with z@z.com that your amount of air exchange needs to be increased, however, I also have a dog that uses perlite and he fans once a day never having any contam. problems.

The z man is right. Not only does stagnant air favor contamination, it will cause scrawny, stunted fruits.
