    Ive gotten this contam before in an old tub but after many flushes
    What type of contamination is this?
    Im guessing from too much moisture from spraying and not enough FAE.. I sterilzed the jars in the PC for 90 mins at 15psi, dont think its the spawn?
    Do you think I can still get sum fruits and will they be edible?
    Will my other tubs be ok or should I isolate this tub?
    thanks

    lip stick mold? Monilia something?

    you will get contam's no matter how perfect you are at some point. the most important parts of keeping things clean(not getting contaminates), at least with tubs, are jar sterility of spawn, moister content of sub, and pasteurization of substrate.

    You will get some fruits by the look of it. you can also use the blobs.

    I wouldn't bother isolating it if your other tubs are as far along as those pictured.


    keep us posted!

    ive never seen lip stick mold on the bulk sub, every pic of it starts in the spawn jars but idk.. I have 4 tubs stacked on top of each other and its always the top tub that gets it late in the cycle but this time it got it after its first flush..
    Ima keep an eye on it and let you know.. im thinking its a bacterial contam cuz theres a lot of moisture in the tub but who knows

    I have after a forth flush. I have always assumed there was a little bit in a jar somewhere that the myc overpowered but then after all the flushes was weak enough for it to break loose.
