I think it smells like sweet but not sure. Been about a week. Maybe wet rot? Bacterial?

Looks bacterial, and sweet smell is a usual characteristic

Probably from lack of sterilization of container? I'm using an electric small PC. Any tips on no contam until mycelium takes over?

Do you think natural lumpwood charcoal crushed and sterilized in PC would work as an alternative to perlite for MONOTUB?

Probably not, all mono-tubs are unsterilised..If you are growing cubes you should be using grains (oats or rye) and coir, plus maybe verm, as the bulk..Perlite is only for cakes to sit on, not to mix in as bulk

Did some more reading. Yeah looks like grain is the way to go. I'll probably set it way aside for now.
