possible contam?
    #1135509 - 12/12/02 02:01 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Sorry I do not have a pic... I know it helps immensly. I don't think it would have shown up in the photo anyhow.

Anyhow, the problem is the other day I noticed that the base of one of my cakes in my fruiting chamber had a slight blue/green tint to it. Now I am not a complete newbie and I know that mycelium can bruise and what bruising looks like. Upon closer inspection the side that was blue looked a little fuzzier then the other myc. It actually looked like the really fuzzy myc that sometimes forms on the base of your fruiting shrooms but it had a slight blue tint. I thought just to be safe, I'd remove it and dunk it in overnight in a farily strong h2o2 bath. The next day the areas that were slightly blue are darker blue now, once again I was wondering it maybe it was just bruising made worse by the h2o2. The other myc was a little blue from the bath but not too bad. Well I went to go put it back and give it a few days to see what happens and I noticed a few others doing the same thing, and hadn't before. :frown: I am really hoping that I am just beeing paranoid and it is bruising. Any input would help.

I forgot to add that the ones that seemed to be blueing have not even started pinning were as the ones that haven't are through there first flush. Also, think these would be safe to eat?

Caution, you could be weakening the cakes for no reason. Contams like green usually sporulate, so what you have to do is grab a cotton piece, soak it in h2o2 and rub it in that place, if the cotton piece comes with any color like green it surelly is a contam, if it's bruising it should come clean.
