First Grow - Salvage fruits from contaminated tub?
    #26426444 - 01/10/20 02:42 PM (1 year, 1 month ago)

This is my first Grow and I've got two tubs going. One is doing well but the other has had a sort of musty smell and a blue spot appeared while colonizing. I hoped it was just bruising but now the substrate is beginning to yellow and some green spots have appeared.

Since this tub has already begun fruiting, would I be safe to pull this first flush and then toss, or is there already too much risk of contaminated fruits?

Thanks for all the help and info y'all.

Looks like bruising to me. Stress related. Surface conditions look a bit sapped. I’m guessing you have more side pins than surface. Fruits will be fine, even if you don’t get many.

Dial in your technique next tub. Make sure your field capacity is spot-on. Adding a top-layer of substrate when you spawn can really help with surface conditions and pinset direction (upwards!)

This TEK has some good info/pictures/animations describing proper field capacity and top-layering.

Thanks for the info! Yes I think a big issue with this was using too big a tub for the amount of material I put in, so it's quite a thin layer. Plus I'm in a very dry climate so this tub has been drying out fast. I'll definitely use a top layer for future batches :thumbup:

I agree with vc77.  Looks like bruising, a little dry, and the TEK he linked is the best I know of.  You might want to reduce your FAE a little and be careful not to keep it too wet from misting.

Even if it was mold, a little mold in the tub won't contaminate all your fruits and is no reason to throw them out

It's looking good to me, especially for your first grow.  Relax and you'll be enjoying the fruits of your labor in no time
