Keep things 68-72. Humidity should be like 40-80 and fluctuate.
You should need to mist a monotub at all or if you do not very often

Take a picture of the whole tub. Looks like something is wrong with your fae too

No its because spore syringes are not really clean enough to inoculate anything but cakes or agar with.

Cakes don't get shaken and agar can separate the nasty from the good. With agar you get clean mycelium for inoculation of grain





thats crazy because thats the only way ive ever done it :shrug:

Well it can work sure. Ive done grows with syringes too.

if you make a LC with a spore syringe or spores in general just assume it's going to be contaminated and fail. unless you test it and it works, in which case you got lucky.

LC needs to be started with a clean culture. Like on agar.

A single drop of spore syringe solution can have literally millions of spores
https://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/21365919/fpart/all/vc/1

the chances of 1 contaminant being part of 1,000,000 cube spores is pretty high, we grow cubes out in the open in fruiting chambers. You would have to grow the shrooms in a bio-hazard clean room to get a print to be clean enough to make reliable LC with.

LC is liquid so one single contamination will and homogenize so that the entire LC will contain the contaminant microorganism.

on agar a single contaminant or two stays localized on the first dish and you can transfer clean mycelium to a new dish leaving any contamination away. this clean culture is what you need for LC work.

So there's no other factors that could be at play here?

Hi, burning my way through the teks . Y'all are way more organized than the stoners lol! Information has been brilliant by the way, but one or two of the links are restricted cos i haven't posted .... 10/ or is it 14 times shit i can't remember. My dad used to say there is no such thing as a stupid question, no he died before the internet before anyone asks. Im at the start end of a mycology hobby,I have loads of questions being answered by the fantastic posters on here, and thats my "problem" I'm aware of the search bar in the top right hand corner.

So any tips for a guy who's not "social"and would like to remain relatively private  with a working knowledge of how to use search engines(y'all even have a search engine for dummies ffs!!)on what the fuck i can post?

You can post whatever you want. People sleep you know. It's only been 4 hours.

Posting 4 times in a row, don't do that.

Question!

Why is PF Tek (without agar) recommend but grains (without agar) are not recommended (MS).

I initially assumed contam risk but its about the same with proper PC and sterile procedure, no?

I would have no problem with MS if all syringes were clean, it turns out pretty potent usually IME. But my last two syringes  caused the exact same type of mold in every jar at the same time (developing with the myc, and being green by like day 4-5), usually with sterile procedure its like some make it some dont but contams usually dont develop in complete uniform like an LC. (from what ive witnessed)

Anyway this is really cool. Just wonder why grain is discouraged without making agar first? Assuming you soak, PC it for longer (70-90 mins etc). It used to be that after mastering PF tek i recall being encouraged to learn grain + coir MS.

This was years ago though. I see how shroomery is always evolving, and the existence of this forum has helped me so much :smile:

Cakes don't get shaken and mixed with stuff. So they mitigate most of the very little contamination in a syringe.

Grain spawn or LC will amplify contamination if any is present
