blue cakes
    #1367673 - 03/12/03 03:28 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

my cat's friend is growing mushrooms for the 1st time and has some questions/concerns.
she needs info on bluing/bruising. after her first shrooms appeared and were picked, a blue formation occured in several spots on the cake including near the location of the mushrooms picked. she did the paper towel test and no blue appeared on the towel. does this mean the cake is ok? several posts have mentioned this could be due to low humidity, not enough moisture in cakes, natural processes. which is it?
sorry no pics.

here's info. on her setup:
technique: pf cakes, perlite humidification
humidity: +90; hygrometer reads 90 but she thinks its inaccurate; moisture on walls, foggy, and lots of fuzzy mycelium on shrooms
temperature: 70 F

thanks in advance and for all the help already.

It's just bruising. Probably from where you touched the cakes during harvest. don't worry about it.

i know bluing is a sign of the psylocibin or psylocin oxidizing. without proper humidity your cakes will bruise, this happened to a dragon not too long ago. touching will also cause this the dragon learned. or maybe the humidity is too high and the mycelium isnt getting good air exchange. but if you have a good humidity and remember to air it out once or twice a day and dont touch it, you shouldnt see bruising.. well so the dragon says, from its little experience with this subject.
