    Smells healthy. My hydration injection was running 3x in 24 hours. I’m thinking too much humidity and not enough airflow.?? This is in a mono tub environment.

    thanks!

    Green mold. No way to fix it. Do you have any more pictures ? Is the tub pinning anywhere ?

    unfortunately no pins. It looks like it colinized really good at the start. Everything was white. Then it went green in about 2 days. Are you not suposed to put humidity on them during fruiting?

    'How are you putting humidity on your tub ? Also ..How are you doing air exchanges ? Ideally a cubensis monotub should be "set it and forget it" . You should only have to open it to harvest. Fan it out when you harvest. On the other hand some people prefer to fan them out to do air exchanges claiming of leggy mushrooms if they dont do this. The choice is yours . Cube monotubs if made correctly shouldnt need extra humidity and dont need to be fanned.

    I was using a hydroponic humidifying system that I had used in previous grows. It ran for 2 hours every 8 hours = 3x a day.

    I made an automated set up years ago using a humidifier. It worked great. Got a picture of yours ? Air exchanges 3x a day is good. The tub to have contaminated like that most likely was present in the spawn. Automated set ups are fun so dont let my"set it and forget it" quote be too ominous. It is something to strive for in the future. Got any pictures of your spawn jars also ?
