shroom piss
    #2912715 - 07/21/04 04:50 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

does shroom piss or mycelial waste have a funny smell to it at all? I have some that does not look fluffy like a mold but wet like shroom piss. It happened at a time when I just put in my cool mist humidifier which bumped my humidity too high. I had read that the cool mist running 24/7 is ok but a week after I put it in (and my humidity guage reads 98 all the time) I what looks like shroom piss but it also smells slighty funny. ?Not strong like a contam but deffinentally different than a mushroom smell. (you can smell mushroom and the shroom piss or whatever it is). I freaked out and sprayed them down with hydrogen peroxide and recased. Seem to be doing fine now I guess. I had to put the cool mist on a timer so it runs for 15 mins on, off for 30, etc... I thought they could run all the time, thats what a lot of people do. Is it really shroom piss, and wtf is going on?

thx

Shroom piss is what i call it too. It is just metobolic waist. Just drain it off and you should be fine. It's not to big of a deal.
More than likely it is water deposited in there via your humidifier. The yellow tint/smell is metobolic waist released from your collony/substrate via osmosis.

Most people who run the cool mist 24/7 also use a ultrasonic every few hours. Keep a eye your set up cause it's very rarely that I hear of a cool mist that can handle the job by itself.

all problems have cleared up... I know I have enough humidity as there is a little mycelium growing on my big ole pins. the cool mist puts out a lot..... I dont run my ultrasonic anymore...

An excess of myc piss is also caused by a lack of gas exchange so this is also something to keep in mind. And the fact that a Lack of gas exchange can cause myc to stall :wink: GL bro

Interesting... With the cool mist running as it was I dont think that would be the problem... Right now I am trying something different for me... I got these big latchables containers that are a decent size and I mixed some straw and worm shit with some colonized gt...... Doing very well the first flush in one of them put out 2 z's. I have a couple others that werent as good. Something that seemed to make a big difference is using a weight like in shroomgods tek. I call these mini-shroomgods... I also put some of the wormshit straw mixture in a few deep dish containers magash uses (much smaller). These put out smaller mushies.... The only problem with the mini shroom gods is that they are not full to the top (4-6" in each one and 1/2" coir/verm case) they have 4" or so container, dont know if this inhibits air exchange, but plenty of good air is going into the terrarium.

A coolmist has nothing to do with gas exchange :wink: Do you know the difference between gas exchange and FAE (fresh air exchange)? These are two seperate things. It's (myc piss) a natural secretion but understand what I was saying it could help you in the future :wink: When doing straw always compress it as tight as you can this will aid in colonization times plus better flushes (bricks/weights help) GL

Well the cool mist puts out quite a bit of air doesnt it? I can feel the air coming out of the tube... I would think gas exchange is the same as fresh air exchange... As long as fresh air is coming in its exchanging gasses... I'm not quite sure what difference you mean here.

I have read a lot of shit and never heard of a difference between gas exchange and fresh air exchange... Please let me know what it is....

But yes I have to agree with you on the compression it makes a huge difference in both of those areas. I think next I am gonna try the rez effect thing I see people all hyped about it looks pretty good.

Gas exchange= the ability of metabolic gases which are created by the consumption of substrate by the myc to dissipate, which BTW will not occur in an "air tight" container.
FAE (fresh air exchange) is the introduction of fresh air in order to dilute/lower CO2 concentrations.
These are two terms that many newbies confuse and each has it's very important parameters. GL and let me know if this makes any sense to you.

I think what he's saying is you may not be letting enough old stale air form the shrooms escape to let any new fresh air that the cool mist would put out. I have been reading on here for a while but I have only 7 post so I'm a noob-I dunno.

Edit: do shrooms put off CO2 lke humans? or use it like plants?

Gas exchange occurs during colonization. Fresh air exchange occurs in the fruiting chamber.

Shrooms produce CO2 when growing, unlike plants.

Also FAE can be achieved using a coolmist if you pipe the humidified air in from outside the FC (or pipe fresh air in to the cool mist air intake). This is not recommended though as it puts static pressure on the motor of the coolmist.

They put it off (sic).

Fungus is so much more like us than plants that scientists
are currently recommending (or have done so) the naming
of a new taxonomic super-group that included both fungus
and animals.  Hopefully someone with specific knowledge
will correct me on the specifics.

Consider it jacked.
My jars were colonizing just fine for a while especially when I gave them a little extra heat. When I stopped that(student not wanting to pay high electrical) and just left them in a nice little carry along igloo cooler to incubate a little bit, they started slowing and then making a kinda dill-ish smell and they have some yellow mushroom piss... Should I warm them again? or is it maybe a CO2 issue? Some jars aren't even germinating, but I think they might be bum spores, I bought from cptmax before reading bad review on here, I was lead there by hawk's eye's link to a company willing to ship to canada... oh well, live and learn.

When the shrooms are making piss is that like anaerobic fermentation in yeast? I can comprehend it easier from that perspective(I brew) and both yeast and shrooms are in the kingdom Fungi.

Yes, the piss is to fight, or in reaction to having to fight,
bacterial contamination.

Raising the heat can cause this to happen, or to get worse.

It is hard to say that this was your precise cause though.

Take care,

JD
