Im my own experience, the only "cure" to a contam is to bury the grains in a hole, lol. Does it smell like mushrooms when you take the tinfoil off or is it funky? Have you tried opening an acct at the Shroomery? Lots of master growers there... They have a great contam forum.

Looks like way too much yellow spots to be metabolic waste. I have minimal experience with BRF, but I'd say thats a contam. Also, what recipe did you follow? Did I read that right? Your cake is made of perlite? I'd assume a cake is holding waaaaay too much moisture if its made with perlite. Contams love moisture.

Dehydrator works well too. Less time exposed to air. Stays below the psylocybin melting point.

Im curious to know what your answers are to your own questions  :wacko:

Yep, its all good to eat the stipes. I only did cakes once and failed lol. I've done several mono's though... You should consider it. MoGrow will prob be nack in a couple days with some cake answers...
You got results, so thats a good thing! Enjoy the fruits of your labour! :ph34r:

I rinse the grains 3-4 times. Soak for 24 hrs. Then bring to a rapid boil and time it for 10 mins. Put grain in strainer and shake every 15 mins for 1 hr. Works for me! :mellow:

Hmmm. I see a pic where it looks like you did a dunk, so they should be hydrated. Is the room super dry, or is there a fsn of some sort running in the room?

Sorry. I was gonna copy n paste for you but I get a blank page. Lemmie know if you have any cultivation questions. Good luck! :ph34r:

When I first started I was confused with all the contradictions too. I only did two SGFC's before switching to only monotub, but heres what I did:

1. I just fruit at room temp which is pretty steady at 70F. With the misting, it would keep my RH in the 90's.

2. I never misted directly on the cakes, I always misted the walls. However, now using monotub, I'm sure dropletts of H2O fall from the lid on to the fruits and I've had no problems. You just dont want H2O to pool on the cakes.

3. I never used a humidifier. Seemed like a waste of money. RH should stay up from the misting.
4. FAE is important, I would manually mist and fan the FC with its lid 3 times a day.

Hope that helps! Good luck! :mellow:

Gotta be patient lol. Ive seen pins in a week. Ive seen pins take 4. Its a gamble with ms runs. Cant wait to see your monsters! :wacko:

You just dont want a light that will give off heat. Ya, hit that cobweb with h2O2 and keep us posted! Good luck! :mellow:

Ya, just for the myc to establish itself with the casing layer. You have the right idea with it being 1/4 inch thick. The light should be fine. CFL bulbs above 3200K is what ive been told.

I mix grains into sub with sterilized glove. Put into darkness for 3-6 days untill fully colonized. Add casing layer and mist with H2O/peroxide. Put back into darkness for 2-4 days. Then right to the window. I do mist between flushes, but I have read that this is a no-no. So I dunno, works for me :mellow:

A good investment is one of those air scrubers with hepa filter. Even with the small holes in my mono; I get enough air circulation from the scrubber. Less air contams, no fan, and no humidifier. :mellow:

I dont tape my holes up. It looks like you have a lot of holes in your monotub. I have  1 in each corner an 1 in the middle of each long side for a total of 6 holes at 1/8 in size. This is all you really need for FAE. I dont bother with the large holes stuffed with polyfil.
The casing layer is used as a H2O reservoir, so you dont want it too thick - thr myc isnt suppose to use it for nutrients. If you are doing a MS run, casing layer helps with a more uniform pinset. For a clone run, I've been told its not so important.
What is that tube sticking in the side of the tub?

Thats what I did. PC'd some wheat grain kernals, cut out peices of the cake that were covered in myc and threw them in the grain jars. I was so happy because the cakes were stalled for almost two months, one was even starting to invitro. After adding to the grains, they were 100% colonized in 3-4 days. Good luck! :mellow:
