I've got the blues.
    #2183262 - 12/16/03 06:41 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I had my first 2 cakes fruit the other day. There are about 25 mushrooms growing out of the top of each cake. After a couple days the cakes themselves began to turn slightly blue. I was wondering if this is a contam or am I set to go? What other contams are cakes open to besides cobweb? thanks-

what are you using to mist them with?

i put some alcohol in with my water on my 2nd grow and misted with it. it turned the cakes blue for a few days, but they recovered.

Maybe bruising, not a problem. It could be due to what eric said or something similar, or maybe handling the cake, or a cake too dry.
Anyway, start worrying if the spots get bigger.

no misting, perlite humidification.

black mushrooms are a bad thing?

are they small? about 1/2 inch tall or less?

if you've got black mushrooms, you need to pull them out asap. rotting mushrooms are not a good sign, especially on the first flush.

harvested them tonight, average size 2.5 inches.

I had to setup a lava rock and air pump setup tonight because I must leave the cakes unattended for X-Mas break. The only lava rock I could find was the semi-large rocks, I filled the bottom of the plastic container over the airstones, and filled about halfway with water. Will this suffice enough humidity for 10 days of fruiting?

thanks
