Something about that big olive-grey blob in the center that just doesn't look right. Your substrate also appears to have a bit too much water content also, but then again it's only a picture. Try to describe it better, is it gelatinous, watery, fluffy, or a discoloration of the mycelium (or substrate)?

hmm gelatinous is a good word for it. u can pinch it and it rips looks like a film . the smell from the filter is very mushroomy. to describe it is hard

I would expect you to smell mushrooms, as it is obviously colonized. Has the spot been spreading? Is it a thin film of dead mycelium stuck to the bag (although dead mycelium sometimes blues, but always turns brown)? Is the bag 100% colonized now except for the pieces of substrate touching the bag? If so, does it feel solid? A slimy or gelatinous spot that is discolored throws up a huge red flag - not something that is normal.

I assume this is Ps. cubensis right?
