First tub how's it look
    #27340488 - 06/08/21 06:56 PM (4 days, 3 hours ago)

Title says everything. I'm guessing it's 80%? The only thing my inexperienced eye sees is that little orange ball in the middle not sure if it's a pin starting  or? Should I let it go or introduce fae?

Shit really? I really don't know what I'm looking at yet thought I was looking at healthy mycelium growth. Any suggestions?

I'd wait for some more opinions from others before you start trashing but it looks like a goner

Introduce FAE. it's hard for me to discern whether that's green or blue around the edges and I can see a little bit of it towards the middle left too, could just be bruising.

Ok. I untaped the bottom holes and fanned it good with the lid. Should I start them on a light cycle?

Yeah, in fact common consensus is to just have them on a 12/12 schedule from start to finish

Didn't notice it until the user pointed it out. I think your tub looks awfully wet. What is your misting rule of thumb with this tub? We usually only mist when needed but many newer growers are told to mist like 3 times a day.

I agree, looking pretty wet. I try to make sure to start tubs with proper field capacity so this doesn't become an issue. Proper FAE and proper field capacity can carry a 56 qt monotub two canopy flushes for me without even touching the lid, let alone fanning and misting.:grin:

I haven't been misting at all but I've had the bottom holes taped up. The sub may be slightly wetter than perfect but it wasn't dripping without a squeeze. Temperature may be slightly too high but I haven't seen it above 79 ambient inside the tub.

Yes increase FAE if you haven't misted since you first spawned it.

The only other thing I can think of is if you haven't introduced fruiting conditions already (12 hrs of light 12 hrs of darkness).

Ok I have the bottom holes open now will start the light cycle in the morning.  Thanks all for your input hopefully I'm able to salvage this tub

Thank you. Fingers crossed. I'm still not seeing what y'all are as far as discoloration guess my eyes are worse than I thought. Any idea about that orange ball looking thing in the middle?

Okay here's some new pics. There wasn't any condensation on the lid when I checked it but the sides were still covered in moisture. Temperature was 78.6f looking any better? And is my light setup ok it's just a bundle of clear Christmas lights

1. The orange dot looks like metabolites, perfectly normal for mycelium. Temps should be fine as well
2. I have a PC/tv set up at home and can look at large photos with high definition, but on mobile it's way harder to tell
3. I used a little led desk lamp for years and it worked fine, I honestly don't think it will bother anything.


All in all, I'd still say that you should try fruiting, it's neat to watch tubs under duress overcome and flush out fruits!

Cool I truly do appreciate the guidance. I really thought it was a healthy colonization. I just spawned on the 1st was really excited about how rapidly the myc was growing. Next time I'll for sure go a tad less moisture in the sub. I was thinking about trying bubble wrap for an even pinset think I should still try it?

No problem my friend! :heart: it's all about balancing moisture, temp and FAE until the surface can sustain it's own microclimate.

I've heard of using tin foil, plastic etc to cover the surface but even if you do get that to work, it'll just be a crutch and will do more harm than good in the long run.

Fine tuning the actual tub, especially air holes, RH, substrate depth, water to sub ratios, spawn to sub ratios, all will help things fall in place! :thumbup::grin:

Much appreciated. If I end up getting any fruits off this run I'll update this thread with some pics.
