After cutting out a lil part where the trich was 2 days later there was more trich around the area I cut out. I cut out the trich and 2 days later more trich where i cut it out. So I cut out 1/3 of the sub and tossed it out. Today no more trich and I got pins coming on the 3rd flush. Ill get pics in the next day or 2.

g luk with that. id recomend disinfecting the area you were workin in. sure u may have saved this sub but you dont want to spread the green devil around your work area.

Hey mush, about 5 days ago i knocked up 12 1/2p jars, with my own spin on the supercake formula, using the z-strain print you sent me. I went on a cake making binge, and made a whole bunch of cakes with 3 strains, z, Brazilian & South American. almost all the Z strain jars show the most growth, some are nearly 1/2 colonized. i dont know if it is because the print was so fresh, or if its just that fast at colonizing, but im very exited to fruit them.


also, i finaly got some horse shit, i collected 2 nice 5g buckets full of some fresh, field manure, no cedars chips or nothin. The z strain tubs will be my first attempt at manure.

There is another member that I gave a print to he stared his jars on friday and they are almost fully colonied. IMO they are fast because of the fresh print. I cant wait to see a grow log from the z strain i gave you.

3rd flush. Not much to look at but here it is. I expected a lot more from this tub as it was bigger then the hawaiians tub was. I got 8 flushes from the hawaiians and this tub of z strain 3 flushes. The pic of the big open area is where the trich was cut out. No more tich but I still got a weak flush. Ill post the 3rd flush dry weight then this thread is done.

damn mushhut, bummer to hear about that trich!!! hate that shit. :( i went through the same thing on a tub a couple months ago, got trich on the 2nd flush out of the blue and did surgery to excise contaminated portions, kept hacking away at the substrate everytime it popped back up. i ended up throwing out half the substrate but also managed to finagle 4 flushes from it :) i'd advise abstaining from further dunking - i even tried a bleach dunk but that didn't kill the trich, just spread it around more. if you need to rehydrate, try injecting sterile water into the clean parts of the sub (sterilize needle between injections). good luck and keep us posted, i hope you get another flush!

Thanks MD. This is my first time with contams ever in a tub. I did a dunk inbetween flushes and got the contam after the 2nd flush. I cut out the trich 2 different times, each time the contams popped back up around the area I cut out. After seeing trich 2 days after I cut out the sub on 2 differnt occations I just decided to cut out a huge section of the tub. Its been 5 to 6 days now and no trich. My sub is fully hydrated and dont think thats the reason for a small 3rd flush. I just think this tub is just spent.

My 3rd flush has been so uneaven. Ive got over 1/2z dry so far, Today I picked another handfull today and took a pic of whats left. I have other pics but I got a new laptop this weekend and the rest of the pics are on my old laptop. I dont know if Ill post the other pics there really isnt much to look at. Heres a pic that I snaped today after picking a handfull.

Oh yea I did find the pics of the caps from the 1st flush and put them on this computer. Ill post these monsters. The pics of the caps are from after printing so they shrunk down a lil bit.

As you saw in the pics, the subsequent flushes were not up to par.

Too much hassle in a bulk tub if you want my opinion

Id have to say if your going to case do it before the 1st flush, if at all. Never case or recase a bulk tub. Ime you'll get less consistant flushes.
