HEY BAPH THE BRUSING LOOKS BAD!!! Please take a look!!
« on: May 05, 2008, 03:20:14 PM »

DAY 17: No pinheads
            73 Degrees F
            100% Humidity
            F.A.E. 2-3 times per day

I'm wondering what you think of this. If this is in fact bruising.... Its getting worse!!! Not sure just thought you could have another look and let me know! Any tips?

Not sure if it's the light or the camera but that looks more gray than the other pics.
Have those sections grown?
I do notice where the spots are there is no Mycleial growth.
Do you notice a smell outside of mushroom in your fc?
If you can see a noticable spreading in 24-48 hours, odds are they are contaminated.
Just out of curiousity what color do you see when you look at them?
If it's gray then get them away from the one that still looks ok in the 1st pic.

>>Have those sections grown?

I would say that more of the mycelium has shrunk and more of this turned up.

>>Do you notice a smell outside of mushroom in your fc?

Nope... No foul smell.

>>Just out of curiousity what color do you see when you look at them?

Well.... I guess they kinda got a gray look to them but I also see like a greenish blue...maybe like a silver blue? Kinda hard to tell...the color is not real distinct! The way they look in the pic is pretty much as they look. I can say that in those spots they look real moist! I think all the cakes have some on them where the mycelium has died/evaporated. I just sent the pics of the two worse!

Any clue why I would not see any pinheads yet? If they are bad should I smell a strong stench coming from them? I don't know what I could of done wrong with these cakes! The only thing I could think of is misting maybe too much/misting the walls of the F.C. plus the cakes! Thats all I could think of man. Thanks for our help!

"Any clue why I would not see any pinheads yet?"

Ya,It's starting to sound like contamination from your post.

"If they are bad should I smell a strong stench coming from them? "

No not always.

"I can say that in those spots they look real moist!"

That's not good.

"The only thing I could think of is misting maybe too much/misting the walls of the F.C. plus the cakes!"

You misted the cakes?
You are not to mist the cakes directly.

If all your cakes have this problem.
I would try to salvage them(to some degree) with a crumble and case and move them outside.
You can just case over the cakes without crumbling them also.
And then that's a 50/50 chance,but you can still end up with fruits.

Okay then.... I was a little confused on if I should mist the cakes directly! I have a read a "post" with someone saying that they misted the cakes directly and it turned out to be a better flush! This was my first time trying to grow so I guess its just trial and error! From now on I will NOT mist the cakes! Thanks for the important tip! -_-

>>I would try to salvage them(to some degree) with a crumble and case and move them outside.

I cannot place them out side so I will try to case them in side!

Should I try to cut out the bad spots on the cakes before I crumble them?
Should I soak them again for 24hrs before casing them?
Should I Change perlite?

If infact this is some type of contaminant and by casing the cakes... lets just say they did fruit.... could they make me sick when I ate them or they will only fruit when there is no contaminates?

I know this is a lot of questions and I thank you for your time!! -_-

I wouldn't do that.
That would contaminate your future attempts at growing.

Your best bet is to toss them and start over.

"If infact this is some type of contaminant and by casing the cakes... lets just say they did fruit.... could they make me sick when I ate them or they will only fruit when there is no contaminates?"

The mushies that will make you sick are the rotted ones.
I've ate mushies with trich on them with no ill effects.

Yea.... I have came to grips with having to let this batch go!! :angry:
I'm just figuring that I will throw them out and do a real good cleaning of the room that I grow in! I now know not to directly spray the cakes....this is where I think the prob started!

I wasted a lot of money on these nine cakes... The company that I purchased the spores told me to use a whole syringe per 1/2 pint jar! Keep in mind this was a 20cc syringe....WAY 2 MUCH I know!!! BIG WASTE!!!

Anyways the good news is I have 4 fully colonized jars ready to crumble and case, with 5 more right behind!  ^_^
I have read most of all the casing post on the shroomery and within the next few days I will get them started!! Although I'm almost certain that I will be contacting you with some more questions!!l lol

Thank you for answering all my questions, and lets hope I can get some good pics up to share of a GREAT flush!! Take care!    -THECAPT
