Is this a contam?
    #2131456 - 11/24/03 12:57 AM (13 years, 12 days ago)

This may nearly be useless, but this is the best possible picture from this crappy digicam. I know its impossible to see from the picture, but theres only 2 pins that are like this. They're blue, and they have this white fuzz growing on them. Its only like that casing. There are 3 other casings that have the same exact thing and they don't have any blue fuzzy pins. Its 2 pints rye, cased with coco coir and CaCO3.

Do you have drips droping onto the surface from the fruiting chamber lid??
Because to me that just looks like a drip site.

Hard to say from the pic... can you get a closeup on that area? It looks kinda like grey-green-fuzz, which would be contam. If you are unsure, I would salt the area to be safe.

Maybe pre abort bluing but anyways, cut it if it grows in the next couple of days.

its starting to affect all his casings. It must be the water thats dripping down from the top of the container. What can he do so water won't drip on his casings? Now its easier to tell that before, but its all over the place. Any help?

1. still not sure if that is a contam or not. looks great otherwise.
2. to stop drips, you could : install a drip shield... create a slight slope so the drips run to the edge of the lid.... rub vaseline on the lid underside ..... spray skimask demister ....etc.
3. reduce humidity: you don't need that much now they've pinned. it shouldn't need to drip at all.

That's some weird bluing you've got there but besides that fact, the casing looks ok.
I would follow shirleys advice, you don't need high Rh this time, fan more to lower it.

Here's another pic of it. Check out how fuzzy it is. Its definitely not mycelium growing off the mushrooms on the bottom left. Its a light blue-gray fuzz.

Not looking so good now.
You can make this. Grab a spoon and flame sterilize it, then scoop out all those spots with pins and everything, then take a look at the holes.
If you find any discoloration, you should toss the whole thing.
If you don't, then let the pins grow, harvest and break the whole casing to see if anything else was growing on the inside. Toss everything, including the harvested mushrooms if you spot any contamination. If everything looks good, you can re case the broken pieces. Water it well and good luck.
