Looks like a great pinset despite everything, nice!

honestly I’m surprised, perhaps the colony is giving it’s all in order to pass on its genetics before the infection does it in.

The good thing is all these fruits will be edible so this weekend I can enjoy my first experience in over 4 years with fresh mushies.

Well we will see. I’ll keep it updated.

After this flush though this thang has to go.

Another pic today, it’s certainly not messing around today.

Some pics, figure if I am going to let it complete a flush I can at least document the wet bubble infection.

I don’t remember the scientific name but if anyone has any info on this infection I would appreciate it being posted here for others to see.

Here is an update
2903e6a8c68961aadc371569571aa36d.jpge1da91301ccd5af43833f418d0e12ae1.jpg078c0d734251d4552ad892c56e137864.jpgb4eb086b458f55b87d99cf38b30c9986.jpg062d816943a5259a37e695eda475027c.jpgce970a7bff838402419bb98151353a14.jpg9a6460f7eb65d9992087d8d7e3ee0a36.jpg2ca56e3ec826e050559112905d2fc8e0.jpg04b218f10a32f65c5068f7c620e933b4.jpg

It’s like mushroom herpes, this block is preforming absurdly well considering its circumstances.

This thang is a Trojan horse though. I could see this ruining a-lot of projects very efficiently considering how good it looks.

This colonized sub is 3 qts wbs/ms GT spawned to 3-4qts of pasteurized EW-castings/coir. Evenly mixed and not cased.

I just picked a abort with the streak you mentioned, I already split it to dry so a pic would be pointless but yea, they're pretty common. Temperature fluctuations I believe lead to some mushrooms getting a bruised discolored looking stripe, still perfectly fine to eat.

That looks gnarly weird and gross man, I've never in 16+ years growing seen wet bubble, I'd want to take a can of aresol and zippo and torch that growth (outdoors of course) i wonder where it came from, it's not common place in homes since for sure I'd have read about it in other growers journals.

I’ve had the same thing in a b+ tub, but it cleared up after the first flush and haven’t seen it since. I figured it was from bacteria in my spawn jars by using an old print. The jars definitely struggled to finish up. I’ve been seeing it a lot around here lately, my only difference in that grow was that the sub was super saturated during harvest.

Just a morning update on the infected block, it’s just doing great. It will be hell trying to harvest this while trying not to spread the contamination further. I will most likely harvest fully mature fruits only and leave all the aborts and crap on the block to be thrown away.

The pre made syringe I got may have been slightly dirty(confirmed yeast contamination+possible wet bubble,.... but damn the genetics are strong and consistent. I can’t believe this is a wet bubble infected multispore grow.

Either way as a disclaimer I would like to say, if you have mycelium that is infected with vert or mycogone,... be very friggin carefull, or don’t mess with this stuff at all.

This stuff is hard as hell to clean up, and very difficult to contain. I will be bleach bombing the walls and ceiling of this room and all the rooms around it along with alcohol sanitizing the carpet.

Keyword "carpet"

If you have wall to wall carpeting you are in a very bad situation since carpeting retains mold spores, viruses, bacteria, fungal colonies etc

Tile or lament flooring is ideal for mycology.

I had nothing but terrible things happen to my healthy fungi almost as soon as I would induce f.a.e to it when I rented a apt with wall to wall carpeting. Each foot steps causes plumes of particles to rise up containing all the nasties I mentioned.

That would explain the infection, you'll want to steam clean all the carpeting in the house, not just in the room.

The carpets have been drenched(sopping wet) in 71 isopropyl, the plan is to bleach bomb the walls and ceiling re drench carpet in isopropyl and then to use painters plastic to cover the floors and wall of this room.

My mycology room is a 100% covered in plastic as well.

Carpet is not the end of the world and I had this contaminant long befor I brought it into this room, this is my only contaminated sub. And most likely only 1 of the 3 qt jars were contaminated. And that’s 1 qt out of 20 that I’ve spawned so far with the rest being infection free.

The carpet is not the problem cause it was not a variable in the first place.

The only reason I even brought this sub into this room in the first place is because I plan to nuke it.

Btw here is an update, I’ve removed pins that were obviously aborting.

The rest I plan to let reach max maturity, even if they start spotlighting a little. It doesn’t matter because this container will be soaked in bleach and isopropyl alcohol.

It would be cool to see them mature all the way too.

I was going to use a food dehydrator but I’ll just put them in a plastic tote with one of those damp rid cylinder things. Should keep stuff from being blown around.

Also I want to say that I did not fan this sub even 1 time this whole grow. I don’t want any current blasting the contamination around so I did all still FAE.

Plan to harvest in the morning, this is how they look now.

Already had a mini harvest, there were a few that were just a bit to far along so I removed them early. The rest are all close enough in maturity that the sporilation shouldn’t be to bad.

I want some friggin toad stools!!!!

But check the current bounty out

That's a nice little haul for a infected block. The mycelium is capable of fighting off forgein competitors so obviously it won the fight. [email protected] bubble

Alright, this is it.

I’ll say it was worth growing out.

I would let this going longer but I go in to work at 130. So we will just get it now.
