blue cakes from dunking a 2nd flush?
    #1636048 - 06/15/03 11:48 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

so my pet has dunked some cakes for a 2nd flush. it was noticed that when the cakes were removed from the dunk chamber, they had some blueness and a slight moldy smell. fearing the cakes might be contamed, my pet quarantined them in a separate fruiting chamber. needless to say, within a few days, the blueness was gone, the nice shroomy smell retured and pins have begun to appear!!

what is the reasoning behind this? will the shrooms be edible? should the cakes remain quarantined?

thanks :grin:

bluing after harvest is normal bruising. it means they're good and potent. reduce it by careful handling :tongue:

you can put them back in with the others if you're sure that's all there was, no other colours or unpleasant smells. smelling 'moldy' can be interpretated in lotsa ways - if, as you say, the smell has gone 'shroomy' again, you're all set.
