Blue bruises on cakes due too....
    #1139431 - 12/13/02 07:25 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

After taking the lid off my terrarium today to wipe it down, I accidently got a few water droplets on a few of my cakes.  Later on during the day, while fanning, I noticed that those spots seemed to be bruised blue.  Is this normal?  I thought cakes begin to bruise if they start drying out........

Help please  :smile:

Blue here and there is normal, for whatever reason. Don't worry about it.

I have never seen a cake bruise from water drops.

I have seen them bruise from being touched or from being banged around.

A cake will turn blue when its dehydrated too...not that this is the case with yours.

I wouldn't worry too much.

good luck!

it seems like my casing bruised from watering it... last night i gave it a fairly heavy misting, and this morning, there are blue patches all across the surface of the mycellium...

Hmmmmmmm........thanks for the replies guys.  To answer that last question, yes, I am using h202.  After peeking into my terrarium today I noticed that the bruised areas weren't as pronounced as they were yesterday.  Since bruising also occurs due to lack of hydration, here's a picture of one of my cakes (no bruises):



Look dehydrated to you?  Opinions?  Thanks guys.  :smile: 

(BTW, They were birthed about 7 days ago.)
