So bit of a pickle.
All of the other bags are clearly contaminated except for this one.
It's got some mushies coming out already as well. They're dying to fruit.
I'm gonna try it. Just this one
I leave for basic in a couple months and I think this should be ready before I leave if I do this now.
Wish me luck!93ef2fde8a421f43ef12c8de1a880130.jpg79c50e1466dd468849b7acd65498dd85.jpg

That bag is starved for f.a.e .... some cubensis do much better in low fae environments then others.....that's what I was told by a invitro bag grower along time ago.

Not sure which strains are better for invitro fruiting but the reason that mushroom looks like that is because of the lack of f.a.e up that and you should notice a considerable change in their appearance on 2nd flush....

The only other cause for long skinny mushrooms is bacterial contamination but I'm thinking it's just the cubensis variety you have not liking the invitro fruiting.

Maybe try spawning the bag to a tub.

Fruiting Cubensis on straight grain can also produce small thin fruits as well. Not sure what's in the bags but wanted to note that  is another cause of poor yields no matter how much FAE is available. Thats why so many cultivators add coir or verm to their subs, It will make more water available to support larger mushrooms and or yields.

So next time I should add some verm to it to keep the humidity up?

I didnt realize it was straight grain...

Yea, you can still probably get away with adding it in, just pick the mushrooms and add in a bulk substrate like verm/coir or manure.

Yeah Grains are generally used to spawn to substrates that are more supportive of fruiting. Didn't you use "All in one" bags your first couple of go arounds? I was thinking that you may take this spawn bag and add to a larger commercial made substrate bag.

That's what I did.
There was actually 2 that didnt look contaminated so I used those, bleached the grow area just in case and spawned them.
Weirdly, outgrow sent me manure and straw based sub for the extra one they sent.
I used that one and one that wasnt straw.
Is straw made for other strains? I really disnt know it had straw until I was mixing it up and it was to late

Straight straw works great for cubensis, that's not going to be a problem.

Manure/straw works the best of all substrates in my opinion.

That's what it is I might have worded it wrong.
One of them is manure/straw based and the other is manure based

The vendor separates them for liabilitie reasons.

The grain bag was intended to be spawned into the bulk bags ;)

Your on the right track

I know this is what I did last time.
The first time I tried the all in one bag and failed.
Second time I did this way it worked.
Third time around (now) 3 bags contam
But 2 haven't and those are now spawned.
I'll be checking on them in maybe 5 days
