new to this and dont want to take chances on contamination
    #1551951 - 05/15/03 06:55 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

my friend just finished harvesting his first flush of mexicans (140 grams wet) and to get the mushrooms that grew up the side of the container, and at the bottom, he turned the casing upside down and into my very sterlized hand (showered, washed, hand sanitizer, surgical gloves) and picked the shrooms from the cake. About 2 hours after he did this all the mycelium (the white webby stuff right?) turned a bluish color, and kinda died off the casing a bit. I figured this was brusing since I handled the casing. I misted the casing and put it back into the teranium like instructed. Now 4 days later the white mycelium has started taking over the cake again, and has mostly turned back to white but there are still a few bluish patches on the casing which dont look anything like the green mold pictures I see in posts and FAQ. Lots of new shrooms have formed and a few of them the veils are already breaking to harvest soon. What my question is, is this bluing any kind of mold? or is it just bruising? how to I tell for sure, after 4 days now the blue has decreased since when i first harvested so if it was contamination it would increase would it not? Is there any ways to tell for sure? thank you in advance for the help and sorry but no camera for pics

Almost 100% sure to be bruising. If it doesn't grow, or wipe off onto a sterile cotton swab... if it shows up where you handled the mycelium, and is bluish in color, then it is probably bruising.

If it starts to grow, get fuzzy, turn colors, smell funny, gets slimey, etc.. then you should start to worry.

With experience you will be able to tell just by looking for the most part.

My friend just harvested a few of the ones that were ready, he noticed that the stems have quite a bit of white fuzz running about 3/4 the way up the stem and when touched turns into almost a skin around the stem, he thinks it was because the humidity was too high, is this correct? or could this be contamination after all? He broke open one big one and it was pure white inside before it turned blue quickly from bruising. Will shrooms sill grow on a contaminated casing? Cuz they keep popping up and look very healthy except for the white fuzz on the stems and the bluing on the casing which is slowly receading and NOT spreading. The shrooms also do not smell funny at all, nor does the casing but he is still a little paranoid and dosnt want to take a chance when so new to cultivating. my friend would appreciate any help
