Can you tell if this is contam or bruise?
« on: November 08, 2008, 02:59:44 PM »

I got 2 of these grow boxes in bags and it said in the intructions to spray water on the sides of the bag , and i think some may have dripped on the growbox..

So is this contam or bruise? if contam , should i throw the whole box away or cut the contam out?

Is that all from the same tray?
That looks like bruising.
It also looks a bit dry.

-Spray the case with water.

- I'm not Baph, but it's def. not mold maybe a little bruised, be more careful when handling.  It looks like the mushrooms stipe is just generating its matured stem color.  Swab it with a cue tip and see if anything comes off, if not its just bruising.

Should I spray water on the bag or on the actual cake?

The "bruise" did not scrape off with a cue tip, so safe from mould so far :)

> Sounds good, try and keep it that way.

The mist is not forceful enough to bruise, use clean water. 

why do they always say that water must not fall on the cakes?

I've never heard not to let water fall on them, seems a little illogical to me.

> No, maybe just once or twice. Atleast until the cake retains more moisture.

Beings that it's in a bag,you could always add some strained perlite to the bottom of the bag,about 1 inch deep and increase the RH that way also. ;)
