Discouraging isn't it? Sometimes I feel like giving up. But I can't, these are the only things that make me sane
Damn. I might have to move to invitro because my 8 (yes 8) tubs of coir based oat spawn seems to have stalled and is contaminating. Ugh.

been out of the loop way to long, last batch was a trich fest... these are grown in straight coir, no coffee added (I should have) not the greatest flushes, but I will take no mold any day.
wharfs own AA+ isolate

well it looks like i might have just saved some subs from going in the garbage, was growing invitro and they pushed out 1 mushroom then stalled. I since cut the bags down and cleaned out my old
glove box, threw some perlite in it, cut open the bags and tossed them in there. 3 days later, they are about to explode. got a few pins and hundreds of knots. and to top that off, 3 jars that i was afraid were gonna
follow along the path of the rest (green monster) turned out just fine and have since spawned them.
see, I knew it was karma! glad i'm back
i believe these all are my AA+ iso. and yes, the sub is THAT thick. mikey and his damn 20 gallon grow bags thanks brother

I like that you use an old glove box for this purpose because I have the tendency to want perfect in stead of functional for all of this.
Hope you weren't too late to take that contaminated one out. Looking forward to seeing a good flush with more than one mushroom.
Funny how one can notice something like this only after taking pics, I recognize that. Most of the time I just don't look at the subs very well, just leave them alone. It can be good to have some pictures to inspect.
When getting back into this on my first two grows there was this clear pattern of dry spots on my sub, but I only noticed after comparing pictures I took a few days apart, after which I noticed the effect got worse. The stuff grows and changes relatively fast, but If you take a quick peek every day you don't really notice any difference however clear it is really - just like a parent won't notice their kids growing, but an uncle that visits once every few months will.

usually I can spot trich before it spores, that bright white thick mycelium is easy to spot in most cases. but these have been closed up in bags, so I guess I just overlooked it.

Half the times I have noticed pre sporulating trich has been from looking at pictures of the sub!
Those pins look good!
