question about fresh mushroom blueing!!!
    #2259781 - 01/21/04 02:37 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

SO my friend bought some spores of the PESA strain and they are finally coming around to harvesting. 1 of the 8 or so on one of his cakes where the first to open and we picked them a few minutes ago. All of the info about this strain said that they are suppossed to turn blue after like 3 seconds. my question is is why do they turn blue? Second, does blueing mean turning like a really dark purple, almost like a browninsh color but still purple. we picked them and cut one of the caps off in order to make a spore print and right around where we cut the stem it turned that color. is that normal or do they only turn blue sometimes. If anyone can let me know it would be much appreciated. I can post a pic if needed. thanks

The alkaloids (aka the good stuff) in p. cubensis is what turns it blue upon bruising. Hence, if a mushroom doesn't turn blue it may be suspect.

It sounds like you're doing fine - the color varies a bit, so I'm sure you're fine.

By "I", I of course mean a good friend of mine who happens to live in the fine city of Amsterdam. "I" is just so less awkward.

Yes, all it fine with that :thumbup:
they bruise heavily when cut, ranging from blue o dark purple, you
might also see some dark purple spore deposits on the shortest caps,
and the veil remains (the ring around the stem)
