I did something stupid
    #2051042 - 10/28/03 05:45 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Ok things were going along fine, until I checked one day and the heads of the shrooms were shriveling as if they were drying out. (even though the cover still had condensation on the sides)
The Vermiculite casing seemed to be quite dry so I misted the tray hoping to save the crop. I checked about four hours later and most of the stalks of the shrooms had turned a dark mottled blue! It doesn't look very good and I'm not sure if it is contam or bruising, or if I just messed them up completely. You can see the dark blue in the pics.

Well seems like the only variable here is the water. Check the bottle yo misted with. Water still viable??? Only thing I can think of. Or maybe it was too little to late and they just rotted??

They are fine. Just a bit bruised from the misting. Be careful, these guys are delicate.

well they don't seem to be dying or rotting, so perhaps it is just bruising like you said. I was more concerned with them being contaminated as I would rather toss the lot than use them if they are bad. Amazing how blue they are though  :tongue:

I have been fanning 3 times a day so I don't think it's that. No strong smell either, other than a mild mushroomy smell. I can't seem to find any info or pictures on this specific problem, so I guess I'll have to wait an hope it turns out ok

i'm with 6C - i reckon you blasted them with the mister (does it not have a finer nozzle?) and that their extreme potency made em bruise. that was 100.00% clean water, right? maybe next time mist the air above the tray, and let it settle down naturally.

good times ahead i reckon  :crazy2:

I only use bottled spring water, so no contams there. It was an organic rye grain substrate with a vermiculite casing, which works really well because the vermiculite seems to resist most contaminates. I read that if you rub the bruised area with a q-tip and nothing comes off then it is most likely not a mold. Another thing that is giving me hope is that I am getting new growth (perhaps from the dose of water) and the new shroomies don't seem to be getting any of the blue spots. Thanks for all the replies, this really is a great place to share and recieve info!  :smile: 

- not too sure of the strain. The mycelium was from a kit
