Yeah, you should see contaminants within a few days IME. I still haven't put spores to agar yet, just tissue. I'll be trying today, though.

Just FYI, its -20 here. -50 with the wind chill. Brrrrrrr.

Man. I turned the heat up just reading those temperatures.

Contaminants can show up pretty fast.

Have some patience putting spores to agar though, it could be a week till you see growth.

I was getting mutated fruits and then read Lysol can cause mutations. Are they at all being exposed to Lysol?

I'm being lazy and not looking it up (on my phone which means I don't like multitasking) but look up rosecomb and see if it looks similar.

It should still be good to eat.

I ate it. They are fine. But I only use Lysol during inoculation. But ill have to look into mutations.

That's some blobulation for sure.  PE is prone to odd fruits, being a mutant itself - I've never grown 'em out but have heard many anecdotes of their potency - curious to hear if you can tell a difference.

Nothing new with the blobs. I've seen one basically the size of a melon on another mycology site.

Everyone says the blobs are just as potent as the fruits, so at least theres that...

Apparently the chances of "normal" fruits goes way up after the first flush, but anecdotal evidence suggests a casing layer can help prevent the problem before the 1st flush...Never worked with regular PE yet so I can't confirm through experience.

Turdly81 I was just about to post on my grow log about those upside down fruits. All strains I’ve done so that! I have at least 10 looking like that right now. I don’t use any Lysol, just alcohol and bleach.
Also, I’m about to try agar! I got the unvented Petri dishes, they get some air through the sides though right? I didn’t want to have to tape all the holes on vented Petris.

I only had 3 of my agar turn out ok so I would definately ask someone more experienced. I had a problem with condensation in there tho. I had to turn the jars upside down. I'm going to try again Tuesday I think tho. I didnt use any air holes either tho. Did u get the pre made ones?

Not premade. Sterile Petri dishes and going to make the agar with powdered agar agar, potato flakes, water, and Karo. PC in a mason jar, pour in dishes in SAB, inoc, micropore tape. Also read that adding green food color helps to see contaminants sooner.

Food coloring is just a novelty to make mycelium pop. I wouldn't use green lol. It is actually easier to see contams without added colors.
