~ 25*C and the humidity is about 65%. The bag has a filter instruction said to not worry about it. I guess i wait another week then throw it away

Temp is about 70-80F.  I live on the basement level.  There is a fan near by we have a dehumidifier in the laundry room which is in a different room not near by.  We open our bedroom window at night and leave the door open so I think we get a good amount of fresh air each night.

What should I do at this point to turn this around?

Any advice on what I'm looking at here?  Is this metabolites or something more sinister?

This is my first grow and I've noticed several of these yellow moist areas.  I've also got some primordia appearing in several jars, which look about 80% done.  I inoculated about 4.5 weeks ago.

Appreciate any advice.

Mr P :smile:

temp is good.
there should be tiny beads of water on top.
If not mist over the bag , not directly into, don't let water pool on the surface.
There should be sufficient gas exchange in the bag if there is a filter hole.
once primordia starts showing give more air, but don't let the surface go too dry, otherwise the damage is irreversible and the myc wont intake water as it should. the surface becomes dense.

yeah, those are mush man :lol: aint pins anymore.
I never had this but what I have read from people that if its contaminated or too much abused it will start knoting before fully colonized.
I guess you are one of those people right now, good luck :thumbup:

Yeah I figured they were way beyond pins!    Any comments on the yellow moist bits?  I'm seeing this in half my jars, with these being the worst ones.  No bad smell.  Just holding out for more or less full colonisation so I can birth these and try my luck!

Thanks for the message.  That seems to be the consensus.

The syringe was 12 months old with unknown storage conditions.  I know it wasn't stored in the fridge and it's been through at least one Australian summer.  It's far from optimal!    At this stage I'm just treating it as a training exercise!

Working with what I got! :cool:

Red spots on mycelium? [Re: Kizzle]
    #26859096 - 08/02/20 04:55 PM (1 month, 17 days ago)

Hello!

At harvest, I noticed these bright red spots on the mycelium, and on a single spot on the wall of the monotube as well, dissolved in condensed water (no pic unfortunately):



Does this look like some bacterial infection? I only had this on the side of the monotube, but not on the top or bottom, so I was thinking that this might be just spores dissolved in water, and then dried out. But spores should be more purple, and pic1 and pic2 also look a bit weird, like if there was some mold on top of this red thing. Should I trash the harvest and the whole spawn?

The mushroom bodies look like this:


Are they like this because of low FAE or because of potential infection?

This was the result of a little experiment. I did 2 tubs  that were identical (oat to coir, each just one generation from the same agar source) except that I sterilized the coir for one of them. This hairy stuff (which I have never seen before) only showed up on the sterilized substrate and it showed up within 3 days. The other has been spawning for a couple of weeks with no sign of contamination.

I've had gray mold and I've had green mold. This is the first time hairy mold has paid me a visit. We'll see how it fares at the landfill.

It is beyond me how this stuff grows in nature at all, considering how susceptible it is to a vast array of contaminates.

In nature, mycelium coexists with bacteria and molds, and good bacteria will protect the colony. Everything in nature balances out
