My tub smells like olives...
    #3217363 - 10/05/04 09:45 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I'm growing pan subbs on a mashed and partially-boiled cardboard/straw substrate, this is my 3rd growing attempt.
Every time they get to around 4 days after innoculation, they start to smell of olives (the kind of purplish ones, forget what they're called). I have always thrown them out before I get them to culture.

Is this olive smell a sign that something has gone wrong, or should I just let them try to colonize for a few more weeks and see what happens?

Hmm, that's a new one. Any specific smell is usually a sign of bacteria. Since pasteurized straw *should* have some bacteria, this may not be a problem. Is the straw overly-wet?

No, I'd say the entire cake is about the same consistency of a freshly-watered lawn.

Maybe thats just what soggy cardboard and straw smells like. I would let them continue, if the smell becomes too bad, or they arent fruiting, just throw them out... It wont hurt to try though.
