PE weird blob mycelium growth!! * 1
    #26990063 - 10/17/20 02:56 PM (7 days, 13 hours ago)

Hey guys, started a couple PE mono’s and they both have very strange growth on mycelium. Colonization took about 8 days then began fruiting conditions. 8 days after fruiting is when the growth started forming and today it’s bigger. Still no pinning. Definitely doesn’t look good but hoping this is just normal considering PE is a mutated race. Any ideas? See pics below

Yeah those are PE blobs. Pretty common especially if you didn’t use a thicker peat based casing or used a lot of spawn

I did not use a casing, is that recommended for PE? Spawn ratio is 1:2

Definitely some PE blobs! :eek: Ive seen similar ones on the Shroomery that look like something from Mario Bros. Shrooms :strokebeard:

Also, PE is a strain, not a race. Race is more of a Human thang.

Its my understanding that fruiting too early is one of the causes of blobbing as well as a substrate that is too nutritious.

Yeah.. for whatever reason, it keeps blobbing at a minimum.  Check out PE.. by Tedsdead

I use a 1:2 so that’s on point

He uses a Homemade 50/50 peat/verm (ph adjusted) but you can use jiffy seed starter mix, which is what I use... basically the same thing but the homemade is much cheaper to produce

ok, will try that casing next time for sure!

I can't imagine the sub being too nutritious? it's straight coir and verm w/ 5% gyp. So most nutrients should come from the rye grain as i understand. Also was considering trying a poo mix, but not sure if that's necessary if spawn ratio is high enough? Not trying to mess with manure but will if worth it..

I was talking about grain spawn when I said too nutritious.. you want a 1:2 or 1:3 etc.  the bulk material stays the same (coir, verm). PE just tends to blob more the more grain there is.. obviously too little isn’t good either.

Looking back I’m realizing grain spawn was actually slightly over 1:2. But even so, would that extra amount be enough to cause blobbing?..doesn’t seem so. Also had room temp issues, ranging from 68-81 during colonization - wondering if that was a factor?

13 days into fruiting and the blobs have taken full control. Spotted 1 pin out of two tubs. And now, not sure if contam is manifesting? These seem done for..

They’re not done for.. it’s what PE does when you don’t use a casing.  They’re edible and just as potent (if not more) as regular fruits... just follow the instructions from that link by Tedsdead I posted above and they’ll push out normal fruits... your second flush should also put out normal fruits

They’re ready when they get soft but you really want to catch them right after.  They’re a bitch and a half to harvest though.. fair warning there lol

They are totally edible and will get you high. It's actually a decent flush in terms of blobs. I use an X-Acto knife for most harvests, including blobs. It works well if you saw around them with the knife, it doesn't take me too long

I basically use one or two fingers to put slight pressure on the top of the blob, then use my other hand to push the knife in and out in a sawing motion and cut around the base of the blob. If the blob is really big and there's still some attached at the center it's pretty easy to cut the remaining part off by swiping the knife through it

lol you guys weren't joking, harvesting blobs is the worstttt. Anyways, ended up with 1700+ g's from 1st tub. Noticed the blobs don't bruise blue tho? is that normal?
