blue cakes
    #2216956 - 01/03/04 06:16 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Hi,

I'm afraid my first batch of mushrooms is contaminated. the cakes are blue in some spots, some caps have a few blue streaks, some of the stipes have some white fuzz on them and the insides of the mature mushrooms are blue. is this really contamination? and if it is, whats the best way to prevent it next time?

i just searched some more on this site and realized that the blue cakes arent a problem. I guess what the only thing im still worried about is the blue insides of the mushrooms. it doesnt look or smell like mold or anything, its just this fiberous blue stuff that im curious about . Thanks..

If you can wipe the coloration off with a q-tip, it's some sort of contaminant.  If you can't, it's bruised or dehydrated mycelia / mushrooms.  Keep your RH up nd try to not bang them around too much.  Blue mushrooms = good :smile:
