Contam or bruising?
    #26983566 - 10/13/20 05:37 PM (7 days, 15 hours ago)

First time posting here, been studying for a bit and looking for some direction on first attempt.  First want to say thank you to all that have come before and paved the way with such good information and the countless hours invested.  Really good stuff here if you take the time to go thru.  Used Bods bucket tek for coir prep and Pastys EZ dialed monos tek (in a 30 qt).  For spawn used 1 to 2.5 ratio of rye to coir substrate, mixed in a bag like Bod does, cut the liner away, and threw a couple handfuls of coir on top and a few squirts of water .  After a couple days the tubs seemed really dry, no condensation on inside of tubs anymore so I misted lightly on days 3/4/6/7.  The pic is day 8.  Hard for me to judge what the right amount of misting is/was.  Tubs seemed to be drying out, maybe I need fewer holes (current setup is 3 on long sides lower, 1 hole on short side lower, 3 holes on short side upper).  The humidity in my home is around 40% generally.  Do you think this is contaminated, possibly too much moisture or is this bruising from mycelium drying out?  Thanks.

Those 3 spots do appear to be contamination.

You recognized what I did. That is contamination. You can wait to see if you can get at least a couple fruits out of it but the contamination moves much faster than the mycelium. If you got other tubs in the mix I would pitch it. Sorry

Ok have an update on this grow.  After it looked like I had some contaminated I left the tubs alone for a couple days without checking and trying to regroup.  I just have the two tubs both look exactly the same, had some bluish areas initially with a few light brownish areas now both tubs have a lot of light brown areas and the blue areas seem to not have done much.. Here is an updated pic, both tubs are starting to get a few pins in them, not a lot  but a few.  I know its not best to have contaminated tubs around but wanted to make sure that was the case and now they are pinning.

You have trich incoming, see all the discolored patches? The sections going from white to yellow to green are trich. The trich is going to spread faster than the substrate to pin. Even with the most optimistic glasses on this is a dump in the green container. Sorry dude.

Ok that stinks but I'll chalk it up to part of the process.  I'll discard these tubs.  I didn't realize the trick went from yellow to green, thought it was just green.  There is so much info here its a bit overwhelming to get a handle on it all.  I'll spend some time reading and educating on the contamination threads.  I'm wondering at what point did the trick get its foot in the door?  Does too much or too little moisture create an opportunity for trich or possibly is this present already in my grow area.  I know that once your grains are colonized they are somewhat resistant so i'm curious what the likely culprit is.  Thanks for all your help.

You could also bury it a shallow grave outside and hope for the best :shrug:

Depending on the conditions outside your house, you could see some fruits soon...

I mean once I start seeing a lot yellow pooling of metabolites the green rears its head shortly after.
