Yeah... I don't think there's really anything you can do about aborts... I usually get a few. :shrug:

Ive misted a little and left them uncovered to get more FAE and keep Humidity levels bit lower.

It looks like you should get some nice sized fruits on the way some of those pins look

hey..
idk what happened to the small tub but it looks like the growth has stalled ?
is it too dry now or what else could have caused that...?
*pictures took just after misting, so it may look humid but it was not alike before the pics were taken.*


also, what is your thoughts when it comes to harvesting, is cutting or twist pull method better ?
I have now removed the leftovers of some fruits i cut some days ago.
thanks in advance

Is the tub significantly lighter than before? otherwise I don't think lack of moisture is the reason they would stop growing. That last pic has a suspicious grey/green dot center-top, or is that a harvest site? Like a leftover foot?

No clue why your shrooms are getting zombie movie veins. I would be very suspicious if I saw that in my tub.

And I like to twist and pull, don't like the idea of cutting the feet off my friendly helpful buddies

i could not really tell .
I asked a TM about the 'zombie movie veins' they happened after I have cut some fruits off.
yes. most of the blue/grey were harvest sites.  have used a clean spoon to take the spots out as I tought there is a bigger chance to get bacterial.
I read that a lot of people like the cutting method because it lets some micronutrients for the mycelium to eat but it might also be a good growing site for mold in the next flushes ...

here are some pics 2/3 days after extraction of the leftovers..


big up

UPDATE

hey folks !

I have some bad and some good news!

bad first. It seems the small tub had BIG FAE issues. the holes in both tubes are 2.5 mm small and I might not have enough of them, so the fruits seemed to die.
At first, I did a heavy misting, then looked the forum a little up and found out that misting and not having enough FAE to evaporate the water on the fruits is the reason they abort.
sadly I do not have a ceiling fan or else, so I left it open and opened the window a bit. (cant do it for too long but the lids will definitely stay off tonight. I hope to bring it back to life!

here are some actual pictures of the small tub before misting



now the good news: the big tub is looking beautiful although also here i have some aborts and thick fuzzy feet which confirms that I drilled too small holes into my tub and as a consequence they do not get enough FAE and stay too humid after my novice ass thinks they need a mist. lol

I know some people that buried contams or spent tubs. They sometimes get cubes growing in that area. It’s worth a try.

i have no area where i could do that, man. I took a very good look just now and made more pics of where i thought it could be bacterial..

Its my first grow and a wanna start a MD Project so i need plenty, also i can learn by the experience.
I notice some fresh nice pins. i think everything should be back to normal within few days.

what do you guys think about the small tub ?

UPDATE

- The small tub turned a nice flush in the end
- I mistakenly sprayed iso (Propan ol 1 & 2) on the big tub spraying it up to 12 15 times ...they bruised like fuck. I heavily misted and fanned like 3 times in 30 Hours while I left the tub open for the whole process. Harvested some fruits like right away after the hydrating process, rinsed them again in running sink water, carefully wiped them and threw them in the fruitdryer. I made tea out of them, was a nice trip.


- Modified both tubs and made bigger ( 0.6 cm) and more holes in em.
- When I fully harvested the tubs i followed the advice of letting some leftovers when harvesting with a clean sharp knife as you can see the harvest sites in the pics.

- so, trying to get my second flush I heavily misted water on both tubs, fanned a little, and covered them.
It seems again im getting only pins which abort.  I dont have a fan, my room humidity is like 46-48% and temperature like 22/23 Celsius.. its been like 3 days since I misted. Today as I misted again, and left them open and opened also the window for like half an hour.

anybody knowing whats happening here ?  no more nutrition ? are those yellowish dots at the harvest sites  some kind of mold/contam ?
here are some pics


any questions, advice or constructive critics are welcomed and appreciated!
trip up
