A couple pictures I have questions on:

My jars started pinning. On "Jar 2" I noticed blue-ish color on one of the jars. Is this bruising? Normal? Or should I isolate?


On "Jar 1," one of the pins is much more brown in color. Is THAT normal?


My mono tub has been colonizing. Hoping this isn't trich or something nasty.


Also, I had a contaminated jar pointed out by White Rabbit, which I soon buried next to a dead tree stump. The other day, I've noticed crazy growth. Is this a miracle?


Any and all information is appreciated for this first time grower. Stay chubby friends:thumbup:





The blue is normal in that it bruising from the being too dry. The brown fruit on the bottom of the cake is totally normal, although I'm curious about that stone in the middle. The mono looks good, nice healthy rhizomorphic growth, although it too looks slightly dry, but I would leave it alone until complete.

I cannot speak for the growth on the log, but it does not look like cube myc, but does look kind of like the stone from the second cake. Maybe someone will know more regarding those formations, but I wouldn't eat it until then. :mushroom2:

Otherwise, you appear to be all good man. Just make sure you have enough moisture in your perlite layer and give them a few overhead misting to get your RH up :super:

None of the other 3 plates are showing anything at all..






That is myc. Sample away from that to do your T1s and then once that has grown out, do at least a T2 and T3 to isolate away. It looks healthy though and should turn out to be a good specimen.

I'm interested what is that stone, doesn't look like its a bad thing. squeeze it gently to realize if its just a deformed mushbody.

the growth on the log looks weird man, is this in your yard? :laugh:

Thanks rabbit - should I go ahead do a few transfer plates now or let it grow out a few more days?

You want to transfer your first run early to make sure you escape any contam and then give your next transfers longer to grow out before sampling away the best looking growth. First plates are to discover if you have any contam, later transfers are for growth and isolation.

Thanks for the quick reply man. I'll keep looking on identification, but in the mean time, I'll stay away from the strange fruits.:mushroom2:

Makes sense, I'll get a transfer tonight. Thanks again!

Hey man! :thumbup:

Yeah, it's growing downward. After White Rabbit pointed out the fact it looked like a 'stone,' I took a closer look today and noticed a head forming on the underside.

Concerning the tree growth, it's definitely in my yard. I buried the contaminated jar at the base of the tree as soon as it was pointed out. Then the other day, boom. I poked it with a stick and it's incredibly spongy. I still have yet to find any indication of what it may be, but the growth has started around the entire stump.

Thank you for responding. Let me first off by stating this is the first op. I've let the grains fully colonize

Sub is coir. I boiled water and dumped on top of half brick of coir[ in a insulated igloo container] due to the fact that I maybe had 2-3 quarts of grains. There was too much water i noticed after 24 hours of cooling. I sqeezed out as much water as possible by gloved hand to the point where little water droplets were dropping. And mixed! Added a paper thin layer of coir over top to cover grains.

I've had the lid cracked[flipped upside down] to introduce fae. Misted 2-3 sprays in morning and evening.

I'm reading different things but getting confused. Is my lid suppose to be cracked during early stages of tub colonization? Am I suppose to water? Is my 6500k light okay to use this early?

Yeah thats not right, you dont do anything really with lid closed, let it fully colonize thats all.
once its colonized proceed with introducing light and FAE.

Now to these white spots. I understand mycelium is white [ not retarded just uneducated ]. Should I wait to see what happens? I'm going to close the lid today. There is adequate moisture in the rubs i can see it on the sides of tub where the coir meets the tub. Top might be dry yes. Should I spray it or nah. And if this is cob web mold [ which again.. uneducated. Researched a ton] should i peroxide it?? Also these spots are in between the coir .. those I wouldn't be able to get to. So no go on light? I'd like to address this situation asap but don't want to avoid patience at the same time.

I saw both.
white spots might be bacteria fighting myc, accumulation of both, can't say for sure what that is. Im experiencing similar issues with a couple of my tubs, and I think it was bad pasteurization of the substrate.
I have sterilized some straw/mulch and put a top layer, wait and see game.

No light not now.
