If it's green,  it'll likely keep coming back. I would toss it or bury outside. 

If you're dead set on getting fruits,  and it's still growing them,  maybe don't keep it around your workspace/grows.

Hello individual people, and the One Cosmic Universe; same thing.

I have encountered the ghostly green gunk, and it was not pleasant. That smothering smug smell, which permeates it putrid spores over all that which is holy! The madness must cease, if I wish to find peace for me and my mushroom. So this brave knight woketh early when the cock crowed, and boomed "the cleansing will commence in this humble abode!"

So yea, woke up early, went to lowes, acquired equipment, and cleaned the ever living fuck out of my room. 10:1 H20/bleach sprayed the walls, containers, ceiling, everything. Moved 90% of stuff to basement, and kept the essentials in a single container. Cleaned the carpet, sprayed the carpet, ejaculated, but later cleaned up, on the carpet. Fucking hospitals ain't got shit on how sterile my room and closet is bruh. It better be since I spent 12 hours on that ass. No joke. Which makes me realize, now, several failed attempts later, why we need to listen to the experience 'old timers'. Growing is serious business. We will definitely get to play, but, we must first work diligently all the way through, before we blast off. We should treat it like we're building an actual rocket, to help us grow our metaphorical. Every nut and bolt is accounted for before ignition, and inspected multiple times. There are millions of dollars, and crew's lives at stake, so we must take every precaution. That is the way we should approach it; period.

I am going to vanquish thy enemy! No trich bitch is going to ruin my fun!

You're kinda going about it wrong. If you're having issues with trich, cleaning your room isn't the answer. Working on clean spawn and clean agar inoculant is. You only need to be sterile when opening media. That means in your still air box or in front of a hood. Clean rooms have nothing to do with still air box work

Interesting.

I've been browsing this forum and cultivating for the past few months, and only now am I finding out about this magic 'agar'. It really helps to post and receive responses from experienced users, instead of just watching from the sidelines. Thanks for your help.

I'm new here and freaking out about what I have here. Sorry to restart an old post, but this seems the best place.
So in the pictures you can see the colour of the caps are weird, and there are green streaks in the stems. Basically what could cause this, and is it safe to eat?
Sorry again for being a forum noob.

Mostly bruising. Looks like there's some insane vert in there. Hella fuzzy feet from no fresh air too, which is what vert thrives in.. is this a kit done in a bag? Those things have the worst conditions for mushrooms. Make a proper fruiting chamber like sgfc.

Thanks for the fast reply. Yea, they a the tubs in the bags which you only have to flower (I'm lazy). Used them a few times before, but never looked like this, normally I get better fresh air so I don't get the white fuzz so much. This one just went very wrong. If these were yours, would you consume them?

Also, I'm 99% sure they were ment to have brown/golden tops. Is the white heads due to the same infection?

Looks like it could just be leucism since they're still sporulating purple spores. There's a few strains which seem prone to this. Like mckenaii, and the obvious AA+

Vert is 100% edible, and almost never gets properly identified, yet nobody goes to hospital from bad medical shit. I'm just saying one of them are exhibiting the dots at the base of the stem, which is a verticillium indicator. I wouldn't print these guys either. Just take better care of them, and grow properly next time :wink: them suckers love air. More than humidity tbh.

So basically like an albino mushroom? Cool!

These ones are produced by "supa grow" and the type was "Brazil".
Thank you so much, helped me with my stress levels. Sorry once again if I didn't use this section properly.

Depending on a few factors trich before pins means the spawn was fucked and the whole tub will green up in no time. You can salt trich if the flush is almost done to hold it off for a day or two but this early in the game means it's probably all trash.

You can hang on to it for a day if you want to be sure, it will probably be green in a day and you will know for sure.

Hello. This is my first grow. Started from a kit with 18 jars and GT spore syringes. Inoc on 11/12. Colonization observed on some jars 3 days in. Today, 8 days after inoc, all jars showing colonization with 2 jars with very minimal signs. All jars have what appear to be healthy mycelium. Notice one jar today with yellowing spots. Can anyone please suggest whether this is contaminate or water damage? My understanding is water damage appears yellow. Also, the area that is yellow appears wet...wetter then rest of jar, if you will. Please see pic. I have isolated the suspect jar from incubator for now. Thanks for your help.

Moved over a fruiting jar (dunked it) a few days ago and it seems kinda fuzzy today.  I looked through all of the contaminant images and couldn't find any that look like this.  Just wanted to post this and get some thoughts.  The other jars were just moved in today.

Do you happen to know what went wrong? I took extra sterilization caution and kept the jar at around 73 to 75 degrees although I think at one point the temp rose to at least 80 degrees if not more. I also noticed quite a bit of moisture.
