beginner.. does my cake have the plague?
    #2246570 - 01/16/04 05:42 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

this is my first time growing and everything seemed to be going well.. that is, until about a week after i removed my first cake and put it into the terrarium.
all was swell, mushrooms started popping up and i thought my first attempt was going to be failure free. but a couple days ago i had spots of dark bluish green on the cake, a couple millimeters small, and it's since been spreading all over. the mushrooms keep coming up and growing, not appearing to be affected by my new blue friend. however, a couple new ones, a day or so old, have caps tinted this color. is this some sort of normal bruising, or is this the death of my first cake?
i've searched through everything i can find about contaminants, but this happened after the cake left its jar and started fruiting. anything i can do? nicolenovak@hotmail.com

it sounds like typical bluing...but something can't be right with her set up if they're just bluing on their own...i've never seen a cubie just blue just sitting in a terrarium.

A pic would be helpful but like the others say, i looks like it's just bruising mycelium, which is ok.

He's a noob. He's probably touching them every chance he gets. I know I did.

Sounds to me like they are drying up.

I agree with PS, sounds like they need a little misting. Are you keeping your humidity high enough?

now there's a total of 5 cakes, two of which are doing really well, and the rest growing slow.
i think the humidity is if anything too high, i have myc growing up on the mushrooms on a couple cakes; but i don't want to lower it.. tossed one cake already for drying up (had to leave town for a couple days and knew it was going to happen).. so now i'm being extra cautious.. some myc growing up can't kill me, right?
