What have we got here? ( pics )
    #1333572 - 02/25/03 07:53 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

The strain is PF classic, the cake isn't contaminated. The stems are fuzzy, and now they've got these "blue streaks" on them. Is this from high humidity? Or do these mushies have a virus or something? I've seen bluing of the stems before, but never quite like this. Its only doing it right at the base of the stem too.

Nice, I'll still keep an eye on those to see if anything else shows up. I'm not too concerned because the splotches are the same color as a bruise would be on the stem, just in a funny way.

Yeap, that's right, could be a sign of high Rh.

Well, maybe. Bruising can occur due to many things, pressure is one of them.

Actually, now that my friend has harvested and dried them, he says the blue spots were most likely just the white fuzz drying up and sticking to the stems due to a drop in the humidity, thus giving the stems a bluish color.

ya, a friend of mine gets that shit all the time because he drops the Rh after the casing have pinned to avoid rotting caps. Nothing at all to worry about!
