Is this contamination?
    #27506326 - 10/16/21 09:35 AM (1 month, 15 days ago)

So i recently bought a golden teacher grow kit. i opened the box and placed it in its bag on the 12th. All seemed well until now. The mycelium continued to grow and produce little white fuzzies on top, hyphal knots began to form, no pins yet even 4 days later, but when i looked this morning, i saw these little blueish green spot forming on top of the little white fuzz balls of mycelium. They were very small when i first noticed them, i couldnt really tell what color it was very well, but over the past few hours it seems it has become slightly more dominant. They are a blueish green color and almost seem to be in the shape of veins. Can I save this? Please tell me i can save it. Could i mabe use rubbing alcohol on a qtip and try to kill it? Could i just rip out the fuzzy mycelium where i see it? anything?  Im kind of freaking out. I invested more money than i should have on this and i will be devastated if i have to toss it. Sorry for the shitty pics, but its the best i could get it to focus while so close.

Here are a couple better pics. You can see the veins it seems to be growing. But the color is difficult to tell, even with the naked eye.

I dont think its bruising. It is growing. It is bigger and more dominant now than it was when i woke up about 5 hours ago. I dont think bruising spreads.

You got better pics of it spread? Doesn’t really look like much from the pics you posted.

You can never tell what´s in there, cause it´s a growkit.
If you placed the kit in a bag, poke some tiny holes above substrate level
for some more passive air exchange, and leave it alone.

However, you can´t save a molden contamned tub by trying to remove it.
You just see molds outside, you`ll never know the depth of the network inside.
In a later flush there may be some damage limitation
with covering infected areas while there are already shrooms growing, but not before a first flush.

How did the surface look like as you got it?
Was it already fully colonized, or was there a top layer of vermiculite?

Maybe give a last pic top view from the whole kit, then let it ride.
There´s really nothing you can do but wait and see :wink:

It came with a bag that had perforated holes in it. When i got it, it looked pretty much fully colonized, no vermiculite layer. And I may have fucked up. I already took a couple qtips and dipped them in 70% iso and dabbed it on the colored spots. I can be stupid and make rash spontaneous decisions unnecessarily when i worry about things. The mycelium pulled back a bit from where i dabbed it, a little blueing in the area. And on the spot where the greenish color was the biggest and spreading the fastest, i just kinda pinched it between two iso soaked qtips and pulled a bit away. i know mycelium can recover from contact with alcohol, but i just hope i didnt do any real damage. Its my first time and i feel like im fuckng it all up. :sad:

And here is a pic of the whole kit from the top. humidity makes it a little hard to see well.

I don´t think it´s a mold outbreak, that looks different.
There may be a bacterial issue, the myc has a bit of a marshmallow look to me.
With a qtip you haven´t ruined the kit, don´t make brains about.
Just look what it does know the next days.
In the end it´s just a growkit, nobody can tell you what you´ll get out there.

EDIT: Pictures always need a clear view on the surface, without plastic above :wink:

Ya, I just didnt want to open the bag to get a better picture of it. The instructions for this specific kit are to not mist it or open it to fan it. It says on the instructions to simply cover the sides, put it in the bag, fold the bag over so its flush with the top of the box and leave it until it pins, then unfold the bag and leave it upright from that point on, keeping it about 22°-24°C (71.5°-75°F). I was afraid if i opened it too much i might fuck up the specific tek this kit was made for. And yeah, the mycelium has been growing these little fuzz balls on top, but from what ive read it just from co2 levels being a little high, but shouldnt be an isue.


EDIT: one thing that also made me nervous was the fact that the colored spots were really only around where the perforated holes are, which made me worry it was from some kind of contam that somehow got through the perforation.

This is what the instructions from the kit said to do with it until pinning starts.

These instructions may base on outdated information.
I can see the lid is on?

Honestly i´ve never seen such growkit instructions, but i´m no growkitter :grin:
As we always spawn to "growing conditions" nowadays,
there´s no difference between colonization and pinning stage.
Dialed in with a good amount of passive air exchange we just check for surface moisture, nothing more.

I´d remove the lid now, fold the bag up high and let the mycelium breathe.

The lid is off. I removed the lid before placing it in the bag. I thought it was a strange tek for a kit as well, never seen a kit with instructions like this, but i figured the sellers would know better than me, and maybe it was made in a way specific for this tek, idk. All of my knowledge is strictly from my many hours of research, but not from any actual experience growing. Which is why i went with a kit, lol. Kind of as an introduction into cultivating. With all the more difficult, knowledge intensive stuff done for me already.

sorry dude...this is why we are mad negs about kits. it seems like the easiest way to get started but half the time its a nightmare. in reality this is the easiest way to start growing and if you cant handle it maybe buy a cactus instead. short cuts will fuck you
