Moved my full colonized grains to the mono tub 7 days ago. Last night I noticed the substrate is very dry so I sprayed on it. In the morning I woke up with this yellow water blurs sitting on the substrate. I used a tissue to absorb and remove them. And now I am fanning the tub. Still I am worried if the substrate is contaminated. I don’t know what else should I do?

It’s most likely fighting something off. Hopefully it wins. It’s just metabolites also know as myco-piss.

From my understanding it can also be from just eating from the substrate and it metabolizes into the metabolites. But it usually does mean it was fighting something.

Right. It is possible. Like I said it’s most likely fighting something off. But not always the case for sure.

A little bit of it is fine.  You had good instincts, soaking it up with a clean tissue or paper towel.  If you start seeing a LOT then you've got a sick substrate.

Update? Was there indeed a battle for dominion in your monotub, or was the yellow blur something else entirely? Have your righteous mushies won out? Pics please, I am eager to know!
