Well this sucks. I know it happens but I'm still aggravated about it.

My first pans that actually had a real pinset just went green.  I get it.  Man do I get it.

How did you prepare your substrate?

Coco/Verm I did the "bucket tek". Boiled two and half quarts of water and dropped in a 5 gallon bucket with half a brick of coir. Let it soak overnight with the lid on. I mixed about two hours into the process.

Coir/verm wont give out to trich that easily. Judging by the appearance that green mold came in with the spawn since it's kinda mixed in from one end to the other.

Sometimes a jar can be fully colonized on the outside but have giant pockets of green mold on the inside undetectable. That's why the sniff test should always be done prior to dumping the spawn in or look for "smokey" movement inside the jar once shaken.

Sorry about your luck man, I too know the feeling of a months worth of efforts getting pissed away 30x over. It's always sour grapes when it happens.

Not a total loss, well.. depends on where you live, could be getting too cold.

Put it outside and see if you can get some out of it still.

That’s not quite the bucket tek, most likely the problem. The bucket tek needs to be done very precise. Seems to me like the substrate might have been too wet, adding an extra half quart of water to the mix right from the start. I always adjust the moisture with bit dry verm if it seems a little wet during the first mix, but ya gotta use that shit ASAP once it cools down enough. I’ve done close to 100 bins with this tek last year and had great success. I hope you can get it to work out next time man, I know the frustration.

Did you open the lid during colonization at all?

It's only a waste of your time IF you aren't learning from it.......

 

Try a woodlover that takes at least a year to mature before even considering fruiting......

 

And then nothing, as in the mycelium get consumed by something else.....or a different species fruits......or a wild species invades.......or bloody squirrels and rodents.....or pesky humans...... :angry:

 

It's even better when you follow out the creation of plug spawn and then inoculate logs and wait.......and wait........ :tongue: and wait........

 

Isn't learning fun????

 

Humility and patience is what I've learned......and the need to follow strict procedure, techniques, and discipline......

 

The move to the outdoors has proven itself over and over IME....

 

Stick with it....you're doing great!

I did once about three weeks after colonization started. Wanted to see where it was at but I couldn't see past all the moisture on the sides of the tub. It was fine then.

That's a good way to look at it. I'm going to try it again. I have a bunch of jars that are ready to be put into the colonization stage.

If it wasn't fully colonized you could have had competitors enter when you opened. Maybe next time if you cant see through the condensation you could pull out the polyfil to peek inside.
