dunno if these are good, bad, or ugly..



side pin action. there's a lot of this goin on.. :undecided:

 


look at this crazy asshole..








so, a lot of these surface pins have been relatively the sameish size for about 2 or 3 days..

I don't know why, maybe because I read it in threads here, but tbh I thought once you're pinning, it was supposed to be off to the races, and rather quickly, no?

I come home from work expecting to see them have taken off like boners, but I get slightly down when I see they haven't changed much.

something I could be doing differently? are these evidently gonna 'abort', or something similar?

do I need more chi mixed with patience?

thanks. thats all I got for now.

not sure if i missed it, but have you mentioned what variety you're growing? is it a PE variety by any chance?

pretty strictly following a 12 on, 12 off sched. its the overhead light in my walkin closet, so im assuming its up to snuff.... its basically your standard room light type bulb. fuck.... I mean, I hope its sufficient.

you did not miss it sir, because in fact, I am not too sure. I got super fuckin lazy with the labeling while I just put my head down and focused on getting clean, healthy myc goin.

it could be B+, Amazonian, GT, or one other one, I'm not recalling at the moment. lol I'm sure it sounds like I'm not giving a fuck, but thats really not the truth - I was jus so damn obsessed and focused with hedging my bets by trying multiple varieties at once, doing it correctly/sterile, that I totally neglected keeping track of everything I was doing or being organized.

It's not important. If it's not PE, a cube is a cube.

The reason I asked is because , and it can be just me seeing things, but it looks like he has some bloobage going on. I can’t really see definite pins, but do see what look like little blobs. I might be seeing things, idk.

close up, they look like blobs. thats what I've been thinking for the past 3 days. that happens tho, right?  doesn't mean the whole shebang is shit right?  can't it still produce good fruit?

just looked. okay, its a fluorescent tube, 4100K..

just looked thru my place, all my bulbs are either 2700, or similar. do I need to go buy a 6500K jawn?

No not shit. Just what happens, I have the same thing on my BPE tubs, some worse then others. I believe a casing is recommended with a PE variety to prevent this.

I don't think it's do or die but I'd go pick up a CFL rated @6500K

yes, good call man, I actually just did, so they're under good light now. man.... feel dumb I didn't even think to look at the rating of the light in there before/while I was starting all this shit. I hope it works out from here out, tho..


can someone tell me what this little fucker is in pic 1 and 2?



circled in red, they're very, very white. looks like something engulfed in myc, like from before when I was first colonizing before things got rhyzomorphic... wondering why its showing up that way, again just now.

lots of 'blobs' i guess.. I've been reading they're apparently ok?
some say they're super potent?  I'm good with it i guess. I just want ingestible product. don't care what the shit looks like. at least not for my first grow. I can nitpick later I figure.

some pins, tho!  so thats cool..

The thing you circled looks like a piece of grain or something that just got eaten by the myc. I wouldn't worry but keep an eye on it.

Also I'm pretty sure you have B+ growing. Mutants are common but still healthy fruits. Nothing to worry about

Here's a pic from my last B+ tub
It's common to have mushrooms growing upside down on top of another cap

Just wanna chime in with my limited experience. Looks like LOTS of mutants and slow growth of pins makes me edgy. Are you sure you hit field capacity with the sub? Squeezing AS HARD AS YOU CAN you only get a few drops not a stream?

Just asking because this is what my tubs looked like with over 1L too much water  :facepalm3:

yeah I don't think that's the issue - I was slightly under field capacity.

I've been reading a lot of threads on blobs now that I'm faced with it. RR has been saying for over a decade it's mostly due to 2 things: overly nutritious substrate, and/or fruiting before full colonization. I believe it has something to do with certain varieties as well, or just that some are more prone to do the blob thing.

typically it'll blob-its-cock-off for the first flush, then once that's out of its system, it should be business as usual with the subsequent flushes.

some say it happens because of contams. I don't fucking know dude lol. shit's a little exhausting tbh. as long as they're ingestible, I'm good with it. I don't mind if the only issue is that they're fuckin fugly and nobody finds them attractive. it's what's on the innnside that counts, right?

Have you been misting this at all?

It seems like maybe the surface is too dry, but the sides look quite wet. On my last shoebox I had fruits 4 days after pins. As soon as pins showed up, I started opening up the shoebox twice a day and fanning it with the lid. I also rested the lid on top of the box instead of latching it on, just to get slightly more FAE. I didn't have to mist once - my substrate was wet enough that the surface stayed moist, and I barely got any side pins.

no, I stopped misting when vets in this thread told me I should.. I guess about 4 or 5 days ago. I agree, the sides have stayed wet the whole time. there still is moisture on the surface, just not on the pins. the pins now are about an inch high, and their caps look pretty dark to me.. isn't this indicative of them aborting,  or something?

are the caps supposed to be this dark? is this indicative that they'll soon stop growing and abort?

they've only been going about a 1/4, maybe  1/2 inch a day..

and fuck, I know I read the fuzziness is do to something I could fix.... can't friggin remember what it is....






then here's this little freakshow happening in the corner..

Fuzziness is lack of FAE.
I still think the sub is too wet.

What's the source of your spawn? How many generations? It just looks way too similar to what I experienced back here:
