First monotub grow , contam?
    #24743917 - 10/28/17 07:25 PM (3 years, 6 months ago)

This is my first monotub grow , It’s been in fruiting conditions for a week now, just noticed a slight discoloration in one of the corners, could this be early cobweb mold? Or another contam? Thanks

You don't have cobweb.

Looks weird af I can't tell tbh.

Kinda looks like hardwater that was left to settle for a day.

It kind of looks like metabolite from the mycellium.  Otherwise known as Myc Pee.  Which would not be a problem itself but it can also be an indicator of contamination because the yellowing liquid is caused by the myc reacting to possible contamination and creating an "immune response" by releasing metabolites to fight it off.  :shrug:

    Hard to tell for sure though, there's one spot that could possibly be unsporealated Trichoderma... not for sure though.

    You will know in a couple of days, otherwise it looks pretty healthy to me.

I would definetly keep fruiting it until you know for sure it is contam'D.

    Even if it was you might would still get fruits, then again it might not pin if it was bad. 

    Bottom line is wait and see....:thumbup:

Do not toss it.  Isolated as suggested already.  Time will tell.

The only thing that I notice which may of be concern is in the upper/middle/right.  The dark spot.

Is this what you are referring to?

Yellow is most likely just metabolites.

The grey is nothing I am concerned about.  If that was cobweb it would be very easy to tell.

The dark spot is my concern!  Looks blueish green.  Now could be bruising, but that would only occur if he touched/dropped something.  Not sure what could be that small though.  Could possibly be penicillium, but time will tell.  We will know within 24/48 hours if it spreads.  THAT is what I would be looking for :wink:

Hmmm... I think only time will tell my friend.  Those spots kind of look like still colonizing substrate but one in particular looks a LITTLE funny to me.

    To me the yellow metabolites are an indicator of possible contamination.  Although I hate to say that!  :confused:

    The mycellium is evidently trying to fight something off.

Is that a hair in your tub in the last picture you posted? Theoretically, if you had clean spawn and pasteurized bulk substrate, it could survive contamination free in open air for its spawn run and fruiting cycles but I personally am still pretty careful and as sterile as possible. Thats definitely a hair I see in the newest picture and that dark spot doesn't look good either mate. Watch it and isolate it (the dark spot) as soon as you can determine it is a contamination. Good luck and remain clean! :-)

While I would normally agree, he has had multiple spots for a while with no aggression.  I believe its just a clump of uncolonized bulk sub.  Time will tell, but that tub is going to pin like crazy here soon IMO.
