Alright you guys the cake was bluing when i first put it in but nowhere near this degree also the small abhorts have turned black. Is this some kind of mold ?or should i just put it back in the chamber and let the poor guy recuperate

Well you probably should have picked off all the mushrooms before dunking, even the little ones. Bluing will sometimes happen, and Ive never had any problems with it. The thing with the black mushrooms is they will rot , alot of the time leading to contamination. What Ide do is try to get all the dead aborts off, and continue growing the cake.

I have a similar situation, sort of :/

I have 14 cakes that i have birthed into 2 terraniums. I put a layer of perlite with proper water on the bottom and placed the cakes on top of sterilized 'chicken wire' so they stay off the perlite. Its been 5 days so far and theres NO PINS! I've checked the temperature and its pretty constant 75degrees. I fan at least 5 times a day. I do not have a hygrometer to check the humidity, however, there is water on the sides and on the plexiglass of the terranium, the water comes back when i wipe it off.
I go to fan the cakes again, and some of them are turning blue now!!! i built another terranium thinking "maybe its too crowded" and put 4 in there. I"m hoping that fixes the problem and MAYBE they pin sometime soon, its been 5 days!
BTW these are Cambodian shrooms, which i heard was really fast growing... but mine arent! Is there anything I am doing wrong / could do better or is there a way to help induce the pinning??

Thanks for reading, please help!

I usually see twice as many pins when dunking.. alot more than wha he has there.

The bruising is probably from handling the cake. Its fine. The bluing should be gone in a few days.

Its too late to case. If you do, you'll get pins forming at odd angles within the casing, possibly resulting in shrooms on the sides and bottom. These would grow, die, and then rot.
