Monotub contaminated! Advise on fruit edibility?
    #27144361 - 01/12/21 08:24 PM (11 days, 49 minutes ago)

Please advise.  See bottom left corner for greenish black contamination.  Also bulbous protrusions from my which I thought were aborts.  Wondering if I should just trash this tub.  At first I thought perhaps I could harvest fruits that weren't growing near the contam, but now I'm having second thoughts.

Yes, you can harvest the mushrooms, they're fine.

Can you take a closer pic with better lighting though? Maybe you could let it ride a bit more to let the shrooms fill in.

I haven't dealt with contam reparation a ton, but couldn't you nuke those green spots with some peroxide spray to let the pins fill out more?

Putting some salt over the patch of mold could buy that tub some extra time for the shrooms to fill in.

Once the shroom grows its good to eat

Bury your old tubs instead of trashing if you are able to

Here are some better pics.  I'm interested in using salt to try and slow contam growth.

The pics are just a bit better than before but still terrible. That could even be bruising and you would not need to salt anything. Is it even possible a closer focused pic of the patch with flash?

Not the greatest photographer, but these should be better.

That's bruising man, you don't need to toss anything. That's the mycelium reacting strongly to a stressor, in this case the surface is matted and dried pretty badly. Let the shrooms grow.

Hey, thanks a bunch for the help. Sounds like good and bad news.  I'm not a fan of this new tub since there is way too much fae since the lid doesnt sit right upside down.  Running unmodified tubs.  With winter my house it's super dry like 15% humidity. I've been misting morning and night but it's just not been enough.

Misting that much can be a problem.

Here I explained it better to another member with a similar issue. I think reading the whole thread will be good for you.

Yeah humidity is really important, If you can find a larger plastic container you can probably make a chamber to keep the moisture

Summer time is much better for humidity

Things have progressed 24hrs later and it looks like it may not be simply bruising.  See pics below, but now there is blackish blue at base of some stipes and the once white clumps are turning black.

That tub is struggling big time and I wouldn't be surprised if growth stalled on some of the mushrooms. There's bruising everywhere and the thing you can see at the base of the stems looks like a little pseudomonas to me, but it's something mild at any rate. You can still let them ride and they are safe to eat, just make sure to boil the mushrooms first to make tea.

That surface is matted big time. Next time, be careful how and when you mist, also adjust the amount of air it can get in the tub, too much can dry things faster.

Damn, I was hoping to use for micro-dosing regimin. Lencillium is not safe to eat after dehydration?
