Lost another 4 tubs to green mold :(
    #24990834 - 02/13/18 10:46 AM (7 months, 4 days ago)

This was my first time doing an agar to wbs transfer, then g2g transfers. I'm devastated. The jars I inoculated with pasty agar looked amazing. I followed the pasty plate tek well and did all of my innoculating and transferring in a sab.

The issue may have been with prepping the coco coir for the tub. I only let the water steam and absorb into the coco for roughly 30 minutes compared to the tek which says 1 hour then 4 hour wait until mixing with the spawn. I rushed it.

If you lost them to trich is wasnt the coir..it was the spawn.

Could also be over saturated coir. I may have added too much water!

If that's the case, then I'm lost. My master jars looked really clean. I know there's white mold though. They just looked almost perfect.

Yea... I really want some whiskey.

I just figured that I would get this down and be able to crank tubs out like clockwork. This has been a lot of disappointment.

Cronicr how are you man? long time!

So I have this spot on top of my mycelium the size of a small coin that is dark blue/green and it doesn't look like bruising I've seen before (it has the fuzzy texture of trich spores). 2 days ago I thought Oh shit here's the trich again. So first it was just spots then it got darker and darker but it's not spreading, 2 days and no growth just darkening. Can't really take a pic because I don't want to open the shoe box.

I'm not a TC but yes, Trich happens man. Sometime spawn looks super good, and then you mix in that one jar that wasn't and boom that tub is toast at the beginning or end of the first flush.

Yeah it seems to me in my experience with coir the stuff really likes to hold water..... And when squeezing the water out by hand to "field capacity" it is easy to leave a bit too much water I think when compared to let's say shredded, aged hpoo which still has to be set to careful field capacity and not overly wet.

      Now when I load my jars it takes forever but I'm careful and make sure field capacity is spot on or as close as I can get it.
