So I had BRF cakes that I couldnt get out of the mason jars so I broke them up and threw them in with my normal substrate mix.... coir/verm and put them in my grow room not really expecting much. This is what I ended up with... once I saw pins forming I moved it into some light. Pretty happy with the result esp when I wasnt sure it would produce at all.

Nice! job I've considered spawning to BRF to ultimately break it down into substrate, I'm glad to see it worked well for you

So I noticed some blue spots forming... I don't think its contam I believe its just bruising. Major side pins!! Looks like it will be a decent haul though. I feel like some of the mushrooms just stopped growing though. Ill keep an eye on them and see how this plays out. If any of you see something Im not in the pic please point it out I'm no pro so I may be completely wrong about the blue spots. There is no funky smells or anything like that so that is what led me to believe its just bruising. Ok enjoy the holiday everyone--- keep spreading the love!!

I've noticed if water drips from the lid onto the mycelium it leaves a discolored spot. Or if you picked a fruit it will bruise around it.

The larger tub doesnt look so good anymore but my goodness did that produce and continues too!! The rest of the pics are of a few freshies drying, cakes on their 2nd run and a tub Ill prob harvest in the next few days...
All B+..... I can say this was the easiest grow I have endured. I feel like this is what any beginner should start with or goldens. I have never got great pin sets but that large tub has had quite a few. I prob pulled just about 28g dry prob more and in the next few days prob pull the same. I didnt expect anything going in and ended up with my best grow to date lol...
