Could be ergot or just a rotted grain or was overly ripe when they picked it.

thank you for this helpful sticky post! i'm always curious what kind of contamination there is.
a few days ago i had these mushrooms

and

when they started looking wet i first thought thats just some water because of my misting and will evaporate. but it didnt and a moderate smell of dirty laundry appeared and i threw them away.
i guess it was some kind of bacteria and my misting-mistake (too much? also on the fruit bodys)?

Bottom one is just a mutant..normal in MS...The white flecks are also pretty standard, but the wet patches likely bacterial infection, probably over misting initially, usually you'd see it on the stipe too

I had a MS grow that almost the entire tub was mutants with odd caps like that. Some of them grew with the cap completely inside out, some with the cap almost upside down, some just like yours is there. It's nothing to worry about.

I'm concerned that this might be trich, but due to my abundance of side pins, I'm pretty sure that my surface conditions were dry. So it could also be bruising from being dry. It's in a few places on the surface of this sub, but it's very faint. If it is trich, how long would it take for it to become more distinguishable? How fast does trich move once it's started dropping spores and turning green?

This is my first time growing. I have four jars, inoculated with Puerto Rican.
One of them is showing two light green patches.
What can this be and what can i do?

Thanks in advance

It's hard to tell with that picture, but if it's green, it's no good. If it's indeed contaminated, pressure cook it at 15 PSI for 90 minutes before you open it to throw it away. If it's kind of a faint color, wait a few days to be sure it's actually green.

Okay, I'm totally frustrated here. Last year I had several successful grows: wbs and coir in monotubs. Life happened and I had to stop growing for a few months.  On 11/16/18 I inoculated a bunch of sterile wbs jars with agar. Everything was looking great.  They fully colonized and I made monotubs spawning the wbs with coco coir. I should've documented the date but I didn't (probably around 11/27). My mushrooms just aren't pinning.  They've been really dry due to the winter air and the only room I have with heat that I can grow in is heated by a wood burning stove.  So I've had to mist a lot and still I'm not seeing much condensation on the tubs like I did before. So now I'm thinking they're contaminated.  I don't know.  Anybody?

Looks like bruising from pooling water, up FAE and stop misting for now.

Edit: at second look around the poly looks like really healthy myc, definitely up the fae !

Could be misting too much / too hard also. Just give it a light mist from a few feet above. High pressured mist can bruise mycelium

Okay.  I'll up the fae and fewer mists from a higher level. Thanks for the replies.

Any time chica. When u mist, u want it to look like morning dew on the surface. Just tiny droplets that glisten. U only need to mist if it actually looks dry.

This is like the equivalent of sexual education and seeing all the pictures of STD's.

Great work!
