I just discovered that blue mold was starting to develop. It is not fuzzy like fruit mold but simply is turning the base of the cake blue. What might the cause of this be? I threw out the the cake. Should i destroy mushrooms on the cake, even if the mold hadnt reached them and there is no discoloration
blue is brusing, have you been handling the mycielum?
-------------------- 08/2/07 Inoculated mycobag with Brazilian, 3cc
08/08/07 First mycelium show
09/03/07 Brazilian still colonizing, Three Mycobags inoculated with Koi Somui
10/11/07 2 Pint PESA 100% colonized. 1 pint Amazon 90% colonized
10/12/07 Storage bin perite FC constructed
10/28/07 Havested my First ever flush, of PESA!
Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.
I have now colinized penis envy BRF jars by injecting them in the center of the cakes. Some fuzz is starting to break the surface, but some of the fuzz is BLUE! The jars were simmered for 2 hours and pressure cooked for 90 minutes at 15 psi! Verm and foil layer protecting the cakes.
I know RR says it's penicillum, but it still competes with the myc and will inhibit full colinization.
