i wouldn't eat anything that you're not sure about. the mycelium of the fungi can pull the poisons out of the contamination and thus will be in the fungus...cut one open see what it looks like on the inside....

and if you don't trust the casing...cut it open and see what it looks like...just because you can't see anything on the outside doesn't mean that it's not on the inside...


i personally wouldn't eat them, i would just start again.

The tops of those caps look a bit worrysome, but that may be nothing.

IF I were you, I would restart the process and try and avoid contams again, because you never know.

Your humidity is too low but that is beside the point.

First off, what the heck is that growth on your casing, it looks somewhat odd. It's white but it looks like some sort of crystal structure. And your verm looks some what blue but its always hard to tell when the cameras these days have auto color adjust and what not.

I definately wouldn't eat those. They for sure have some sort of bacterial growth. But I have no idea what the blue is. Could be that the dry and bacteria are just causing brusing, could be alot worse. Hard to say. You should definately cut that casing open to see what's going on inside. Of course do it somewhere where it will not infect your other cultures and protect yourself.

I thought it better to have this pic in this thread instead of starting up a new one. 
Other than the bluing, I don't see any outward signs of contamination. 

I still would agree that starting over is probably the best idea.

You said that you salted a contamination area. . .Could some of this salt have contacted the fruitbody surface?  Salt can cause bluing [just put a wet fruit on some calcium chloride :wink: ]. 

Anyway, you will have better luck next time.

Next time, if the contaminated area isn't too lager, try cutting it out of your case, decontaminate the walls of the cut out area with, let's say, some alcohol, then refilling the hole with sterile subsrate.

About the blue caps, maybe it's a sign of low Rh. If you look at the bigger caps, you'll notice one of them has a crack and they might turn blue because they're drying. It also looks like the other big cap is slightly mutated.
It could also be due the contamination itself or the salt. Btw, the salt absorbs humidity. Since it looks like you don't use any other humidification method rather than the casing evaporation, you should take in account the extension of the salted area. Too much salt will suck up humidity to unappropriate levels.

thanks for the info everyone! :grin:

i'm starting over..:syringe: , i think the blue greeny stuff its probably because of the contamination and the salt, cause when i was cutting the case to throw it away, i took a look at the mycilium beneath the shrooms at the substrate and it was blueish green too..

considering eating them, i'll only eat them when i'm shure they're healthy, to avoid poisoning or whorst... :crazy2:

thanks again!! :biggrin:

Best regards
