First PF tek - contamination during fruiting?
    #24582700 - 08/27/17 09:02 AM (3 years, 8 months ago)

After full colonization, I've soaked my cakes for 24 hours, rolled them in vermiculite and put them in my shotgun fruiting chamber, with soaked sterilized perlite.

I haven't yet gotten a hygrometer, so I'm not sure whether the humidity is right. I open the SGFC a few times a day and mist the perlite.

However, before any pins have showed up the mycelium on the cakes (which seems to be growing aggressively) turned blue in a few places:



Is this contamination? Or perhaps a FAE or humidity problem?

All help or insight is appreciated, thanks guys :smile:

Nice cakes! Good job.

Its hard to see the contamination in the picture. But you have a few options. One use a flame sterilized knife and cut out the contamination. Or I know some people will spray hydrogen peroxide on it. There's always just leaving it too and seeing if  the mushroom just rejects and out competes it.
I hope it all works out for you.

I am getting back into growing.

Been experimenting with an electric pressure cooker. 11.6psi for 2 hours seems to work.
