Contaminated monotub?
    #23347237 - 06/15/16 12:55 PM (8 years, 29 days ago)

Is my monotub contaminated? It has been over a week since I put it in fruiting. I used 2pint jars with 98% colonization. Then I had some small jars I just took out the mycelium and threw the rest uncolonized away. I did a 50/50 coir vermiculite mix using a 1:3 ratio. There's a lot of raindrops on the substrate and a few pale yellow spots, then there's spots with foamy mycelium.  I have 3 small holes on each side and I fan 1-2 times a day. I don't know if it's contaminated or I did something wrong with the tub. Does it generally take 20+ days to fruit?

Bacteria. Uncolonized jars = problems.

Does it mean nothing will grow and I need to throw it away?

Looks bacterial. Using spawn that wasn't 100% would go along way to explain why. Just ditching the uncolonized part doesn't solve it and it was probably bacterial anyway.

You may get some shrooms; bacteria is not always total fail.

You aren't getting enough FAE though either and that will make it worse. All I see are tiny holes stuffed with poly, top and lid. This won't give you adequate FAE. At least take the poly out of the top holes. For your next grow, tape over those holes and make a better mono with larger holes in the right places.

Okey i Will take away the poly from the top, can i take a fan or something to blow fresh Air in? Or maybe just take the lid and fan 5times a day or something?

Fanning is not a substitute for FAE. Both are different things that serve a different purpose. Monotubs do not need to be fanned if they are dialed in properly. As for the fan, first you should see if you can get the conditions good enough without one. Remove the poly and if you still have FAE problems, then you should try the fan.

When you say remove poly you mean remove all of the polyfill from every side?

Try removing the poly in the top holes first and see if that gives you more FAE, you should be able to tell within about 24 hours.Then, if not, the bottom holes can be removed. The bottom holes are high enough that you shouldn't have any issues with dry spots on the sub.

Today some very small penis shaped fluffy stuff appeared above the white colonized parts. Does this mean shrooms will grow soon?

Is this a properly colonized substrate it looks like it has to much mycelium and I read that you should to put the casing in fruiting as sson as the first spots of mycelium is introduced to the surface of the soil so that is bothering me all the time,this is all white,it looks like a cake almost

Did you follow a certain monotub tek? Your holes look very very small in the pics and have strange placement IMO. The two main triggers for pinning is EVAPORATION and FAE. Your tub looks properly colonized and dialed in though.

It was put in fruting as soon as it colonized the whole tub.

Did not follow any tek i just made 3 Holes on each side in the middle and two holes on the side. The holes are about 1cm and the tub is located near a open window so i get constant air.
