A couple of questions.
    #2134703 - 11/25/03 01:00 PM (14 years, 21 days ago)

#1
Is the mushrooms growth suppose to slow or even stop after the veil is broken? I didn't think so but mine seem to do that.

#2
On a couple of my mushrooms the stem turned quite dark shortly after the veil broke. I wasn't sure what the problem was so I simply picked them to be safe.

#3
I know when the cakes are touched or knocked around they turn a blueish color. Will mushrooms still grow where the cake has been touched or in my case the cake fell over a few times. (I could only find 1 pint jars so they tip easier then the half pints)

Also, two of my cakes are only fruiting on one side of the cake. Could this because the cake fell and landed on the other side? Any help with these questions would be great.

1 - definitely not. mine add about 10-20% total fruit bulk after the veil pops.

2 - i'm guessing that was spores. dark purple-black? wipes off with a tissue?

3 - they tend not to fruit where they bruised, so it's encouraged to always pick em up at the same spot.

good luck, fella!

1) After the veil has broken, they will continue to grow for a little while longer, but, that is really the end of the growth cycle.

2) It could have been that they stopped growing and started to rot.

3) I would imagine that the areas that have turned blue would not grow if the areas were creating hyphal knots at the time. The falling could have damaged the pins....however Id imagine the mycelium would continue to colonize in that area.

4)yes, it could be related.

Thanks a lot! This is my first time and I'm still learning as much as I can. I'm pretty happpy with my results so far. What about after dunking, will the cake fruit where it was previously bruised after I dunk them or not?

Cubensis mycelium is tough -- you can break it up and it will turn blue, but then it will heal and grow mushrooms. Pinning on one side is tough -- if there's light going to only one side that's the reason, but otherwise one side could be more humid (if direct light is drying one side out, for example) or it could be almost anything.... Like angryshroom said -- could be damaged pins, too, but you should see shrooms there, eventually. Cakes really "decide" for themselves where to pin -- there's not always a simple answer as to why.

Bruising mycelium won't kill it.
