Wanted to provide an update: The tub that I suspected had wet bubble was removed from my grow room and has yet to fruit. The other fully colonized tub pictured above has finally started to pin! My first ever pins, yesterday when I got home I noticed two pins and this morning about 5!! Its been quite the struggle with all the failed/aborted grows but the satisfaction of actually seeing those pins made all that angst melt away just as I plan to do when its harvesting time!! Melt away on the beach with an amazingly powerful backdrop! Funny how yesterday morning I felt so defeated and today Im flying high all for the love of mushrooms. Stay golden everyone!!

Well. Step one is to let a mushroom grow up and try taking a print. Within a few days thos pins will be full grown.

Isn't it cool when they finally grow?

Its amazing! Now I feel like I have the blueprint to really get things going and I now understand the mistakes I made earlier and all the tubs I wasted lol. Its pretty awesome all the things you can learn from growing mushrooms not just surrounding mycology but also learning about yourself.

Quick question I have some Treasure Coast that didnt fully colonize my tub but is starting to show pins atleast I think they are pins. Different strains have different pins? These look like skinny white stalks almost like a mini tail at first I thought it was some sort of contam but everything smells fine and I don't see any abnormal coloring. Ill post a picture later along with a pic of my Goldens growing! Being new and finally allowing everything the time it needed to be successful I now realize I probably throw away a few good tubs that I just assumed stalled, lessons learned lol. Hope everyone is having a great week, keep shining!!

Going to need a little more help with this one. So this tub had what I believed was wet bubble so I removed it from my grow room but didnt toss it. There are mushies growing but with the wet bubble in the tub should I toss it or just see what happens? Here is a pic of the tub... Second question is the other tubs I have going are growing a rapid pace and side pins are forming when its time to harvest can I still eat the little side pins? Please explain aborts a bit if possible, are they edible?

The wet bubble thing...i don t know. I would grow them out as long as there's no real big contamination. If your worried throw away anything that grows near that spot. The side pins are fine to eat and I think the aborts are too as long as you pick them and dry them before they start to rot. I wouldn't let them sit there for a week. I saved up about 3.5 g of the little pins and aborts and made tea. I lived.

Awesome its so crazy seeing all this growth. The two tubs I didnt think were going to produce anything actually have quite a bit growing now! How long does it usually take for mushies to mature?

That is certainly wet bubble, it will ruin your life get rid of it. This is a serious problem. Wet bubble makes sticky brown spores on the caps of the mushrooms that last for YEARS! You will have to ozone nuke your room.

Ok with that being said are there any precautions I need to take with my next grow? Should I toss the tub completely or can I sterilize it and the FC it was in should I do the same? This is probably the second or third time Ive seen this on one of my grows. If any shrooms grow in that tub they will be contam too?

The problem with wet bubble is that it is a white mold that looks just like tomentose mycelium. It can be really hard to detect until you have the golden dropped bubbles. It intermeshes with the mycelium as a mycoparasite. The fruits are safe to eat when dehydrated properly. But they must not be used for printing or cloning. The bubbles are quite potent I hear.

Ok so I can allow that tub to fruit and just make sure I dehydrate them thoroughly and the bubbles are potent lol. I will most def be posting a report after I eat one of the bubbles

I think a few of those might get pretty big. I was worried that I wouldn't end up with much but for my first time ever getting fruits Im really happy with what I have so far and I have another week before I have to leave for two weeks so these will hopefully be ready to harvest by next friday.
