Are these contaminants or bruising/metabolites?
    #25882968 - 03/19/19 01:06 AM (2 months, 30 days ago)

Hello,

I have three tubs total but have two that show something concerning. It is my first grow so I just want to be sure they are what I think/hope they are. My hope is bruising (possibly due to spraying the section it was in so closely and vigorously) in the first tub and metabolites in the second.

Here is the blue piece:


And then in another tub (and this is harder to see via the camera but was definitely a small puddle of yellow liquid that I could dab up with a tissue):

As an update, after closer examination, I believe these tubs were perfectly fine. So if you see something similar to the pictures above you should be okay. I'll update this thread again if that changes. *Still waiting on pins*

1st picture looks like bruising.. look for the powdery texture not just colour to detect mold. if you mist your tub you should stop it.. probably bruising because of misting or presence of bacteria

2nd and 3rd picture obvious bacteria.. good luck with that.. no need to toss because of bacteria, but mold will appear easily on bacteria spots.. then its time for toss..

*
didn't see you said its liquid form on 2nd and 3rd.. in that case metabolites, again probably because of bacteria.. any funky smell?.. btw i' dont see any holes.. what kind of FC are you using? also did you go agar>grain or ms syringe>grain?

Hey thanks for dropping by the thread and helping me out. I'm doing bod's unmodified monotub tek so no holes for me.

With respect to FC, I have three tubs and I started with two bricks of coir so 1300 g (I did weigh it and it was close enough). I multiplied that by 5 to get the # of quarts to put in so it was 6.5 qts. So after it was mixed I just separated it out as evenly as I could between the three tubs so FC per tub is ~2.2 qt.
I think I did those calcs right, let me know if not.

Also, I'm using 32 qt tubs and I used 4 x 1 quart jars full of spawn per tub. I'm actually unsure what the recommended ratio is between spawn and FC. Do you know that offhand?

It wasn't until now that I realized I didn't answer your questions. I did ms -> grain. And all totes smell great. I really think I'm good at this point. I was just being a nervous nelly.

Be sure you have some bacteria there, but if you see no mold you are good to continue.. if you see little water bubbles on your substrate surface don't mist.. mist only if needed (if dry)

The yellowing may just be metabolites. I’ve had similar coloring on lion’s mane with no issues fruiting.

It smelled okay but I didn't want to risk it. I ended up tossing 6 jars out of 33.

^ Thought I was commenting on a different thread. These tubs are still going strong.
