Just when ya think you got it....shit happens..........
    #1844121 - 08/23/03 10:05 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Ok, Well I got 9 cakes fruiting, and I woke up today to find some really nice pins. The shitty thing is on inspecting the cakes that are doing the best, with the most pins. I got green fucking funk on tiny areas. Well I got a qtip dipped it in hydrogen peroxide, and swabed them and scraped off all the green shit. I then wipped my chamber down with rubbing alcohol and took a strong solution of h202 and spray the perlite on the bottom. I am very pissed because I thought I finally was gonna have some mushrooms. Well I just stuck all the cakes back in the fruiting container. I'm just not going to fuck with um and leave um alone. I am so fucking pissed, I had at least 4 cakes out of 9 with funk on them. I also noticed that two of the pins on 2 of the cakes have lick holes in um. Like someone took a knife and sliced a slit n the side of them. WTF is this shit?? ERRRR I'm so fucking mad. I got so many fucking pins and they look so healthy and fat. What the fuck should i do?? I'm thinking maybe its to moist in my chamber and that lead to contams, because I noticed with my last grow, I wasnt getting pins and when I finnally did I figured since I didnt dunk them, I should place them on the perlite and i got the same shit that growing now. It starts off as a thick looking cloud like mold thats white, then turns green. These cakes are on their first flush, they have only been in the fruiting chamber for a little over a week, why the fuck are the contaminating??

Fucking sucks man. I've been going through the same shit, trying to nail bulk subs. It takes a lot of trial and error. Funny thing is, I removed one of those white clouds that turns green today. What the hell is that? Don't put your cakes directly on your perlite though. That for sure invites contams. Get some lighting grid. That works nice.

that's sad stuff, and i do understand your situation.  Just don't give up with the cultivation thing, it takes a lot of practice and patience to be successful, at least it's the case for me. 

Some people seems to have amazing results at their first growing attempt and that pisses me off!!!!! :laugh: 

don't give up and try again!

Split stems....only experience i've had with them is related to too much water...white to green? if it has no smell it sounds similar to algae? all sounds like too much water related things. Dont take my word for it...but if they were mine i would get them out of the perlite and try to get rid of some of the water....maybe poke some drainage holes in the bottom.

Well I got to have a good amount of water considering I got one of magash's setup's. And the mold or whatever it is does have a slight smell to it. I'm just pissed cuz I dont know what to do. I guess just let them grow out, and dont fuck with them anymore. I'm just pissed cuz they were doing great I mean like over 50-100 pins on a cake. I wanna cry!!!! This is fucked I am about to give this shit up.

When using perlite don't put the cake's on it. Use a lid with verm. In some cases (and I hope this is it, I was really pulling for ya) with perlite you will see blue or brusing where the cakes were sitting on the excess moisture and things should turn out fine. I had someone call me in a panic cause of this.
Seems like you know the green but I'm just hoping this is it. The person to ask is Kussh cause he's the person it happend to.

I dont have them on the perlite magash. I got them on tinfoil with verm under them. And its not bruising. I had it my last grow. It turns the part its infected into mush. And it smells pretty fucking bad.

And by the way I guess I will try the salt cuz I dont think much else will save them. But the really shitty thing is if you saw these cakes they ar eon their first flush and if you saw all the pins youd cry too. There are so many of them and they look so good.

Anyaways here is one cake, i know the quality sucks but I got a 5 dollar webcam form ebay. LOL. I want to cry cuz I dont want to loose my babies. This is just one cake the other side has just as many pins. I counted over a hundred on this cake and all the others. Creepers kickass until u get a contaminate.
