First mono tub possible contam?
    #25578230 - 10/30/18 11:12 AM (2 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys. So started pf tek decided to make a jump and shredded 3 of 12 cakes into a bulk bin with a 3:2:1 mixture of coir,verm, aged chicken compost. Pasturized 160 pressure cooker. After 8 days took peek and noticed full colonization with lots of fuzzy whispy bits of whatever. Been exposing it to light the past 4 days and havent noticed much change in apperance, wiped down condensation yesterday and gave it a little freah air. Didnt want to smell it/wore a mask because im still not sure if it is contaminated since the substrate seems to have many different forms of growth on it. So heres a pic. Is it contaminated? If not what should i do mist it and fan like once a day? Pf cakes are looking good all but one is fruting atm. Appreciate any feedback

Sub looks good, although what are the 3 black lumps that look uncolonised? You should introduce more FAE, only mist if its dry, and no fanning..as it looks like you're running an unmodded tub just crack the lid upside down

Glad to hear it looks okay. You are correct the 3 spots are un-colonized. didnt know if i should try and remove it or not, im guessing they are just dry lumps of compost. Thanks for the tips, i will stop fanning and try to introduce more fresh air. only drilled a total of 6 holes in the bin 2, 2" holes and 4, 1/4" holes. Would it be wise to try and drill some more 1/4" holes?

I'd leave them be, but keep an eye on them...Look at the Easy AF Shoebox tek in my sig..you don't need to drill holes
