I woke up this morning to little brown spots on my first cake.  My positive side says they little mushroom caps.  My super paranoid side says, it the brown plague of death.  :tongue:  What do you guys/girls say?

Looks like blobs. Is it a PE strain by Vance?

I was also going to ask what strain you were working with.... Looks like some type of mutation to me. As deemesis eludes, growth like this is common with the PE strains.

 

Those "blobs" look firm to me but I have seen mycelium produce bulbous growth that is soft, kinda like a marshmallow!

It is supposed to be Golden Teacher.  What type of mutation?  That is a new one on me.

My first flush of Golden Teacher looked like Golden Penis, second flush looking more normal.

This is odd looking though! Can only wait and see.. Almost looks like you are growing some peyote cactus..

Maybe so.  Who knows what was really in that syringe.  I'm curious to see what happens too.

I’ve had them on other strains but PEs do seem prone to it. If they look and feel like cube tissue I eat them. Not really sure why it happens. I do notice they do kinda take away from the pin set though.

My problem is that this is the first time I've grown so I don't know what cube tissue looks or feels like.  All I can really do at this point is wait and see.  I will probably be posting pics as it develops.

Not uncommon with a multi-spore grow.

 

Looks like a small cluster and the white coverage could be a sign of high humidity.

 

I'm liking your wait and see approach!

 

Let's see another picture in 36-48 hours.

 

Great to see pinning even if they turn out to be mutations.

I'd give those a few days. Could still be normal fruits. Keep us updated.

Sometimes the caps will form as lumps like that.

I have noticed some pins starting to come up on the side of said cake.  It doesn't seem like the other cluster has done anything yet.  Still keeping my eye on them though.  I'm in a little bit of a rush this morning, but I plan on posting pics either later today or in the morning.  I'm so excited.  :thumbs_up2:

As promised, I wanted to post a few pics.  I have noticed that the brown blobs I first posted about are indeed growing.  I can tell as of right now I have 10 pins on one cake.  I hope my pics are good.  I never really know until after I post them. lol

I have this in 5-10% of my tubs with certain substrains
Especially tubs with thick super high moisture substrate.

So far I've had this happen with B+, PE, & GT. If you let them grow they get dense massive. Sometimes they grow stems. It's almost like the cap grew first and without a stem. Some of them actually have gills in the. They are psychedelic. They don't loose as much water wieght 85-90% like full shrooms for some reason. When the are dried they get ROCK hard. Since there not visually appealing I grind them up and put them into edibles.

I let them grow until they start to crack then I pull them.

Very cool. Like I said they do seem to be getting bigger but I have seen no signs of a stem yet. I will keep a close eye on them. I may try to cut them a little bit before drying. Then again I might just eat them fresh.

Ok guys and gals.  This was today's pic of my brown blobs.  There seems to be 6 or 7 of them.  Two of them are getting bigger, but very slowly.  The rest seems to be the same.  Should I be thinking about getting rid of these?

I have another quick question.  On the "backside" of the cake, it's hard for me to see what is going on.  Is it OK to rotate the cakes so I can accurately monitor my growth?

Rotation and slight movement / placement is no problem at all.

 

I'm thinking you need to harvest the blobs. I'm on the edge and we can wait for other input but I'd probably harvest the whole cake and dunk it for the next flush.

These have moved very slow from day one and with pre-made jars I think they may have been dry all along.

 

Let's get some other input from others as well.

 

Don't toss the blobs they'll be fine dry or fresh.

Ok. So you are telling me to harvest the whole cake even if the normal looking ones are growing fine. Sorry for asking again but I want to make sure that I won hundred percent understand what you’re saying
