Psilocybe Cubensis- two different cap colors [FIRST TIME GROWER]
    #25751558 - 01/18/19 04:08 PM (2 years, 1 month ago)

Well hello shroomers ! First post and first time growing shrooms. Let me give you some context first.

I was impatient to start growing mushrooms,so I ordered a grower kit (yes I know, could've done everything by myself, but anyways)I completely forgot that I had to go away for three weeks ! Started growing anyways ! Had a first batch, but not even close to a complete first batch, maybe just a dozen shrooms?

I had to go away, so I harvested the biggest, and proceeded to put the growing chamber in the fridge (against all the advices I read) but it was my only option, didn't want to come back finding rotting shrooms or anything.. So I took my chances. I cam back 10 days ago, let the growing chamber out, started to routine procedure, spraying with water the substrate, 12hrs of light etc. And shrooms started to grow again about 3-4 days ago!

However, I realised that there was probably some contamination, some parts of the mycelium were blue, some pins turned blue as well, and something that looked like cobweb popped up. I sprayed some hydrogen P. on it, it stopped the growth (I think?) but it started to darken a bit.

Anyways, I now have one mushroom with a light brown cap, and all the others are dark brown! Are the dark brown caps contaminated?

Blue is bruising from cold shock, being misted too hard or being too dry..the caps are darker at first and then lighten up, but black means aborts, so pick those off before they rot

Plus I have no idea why you've got it in a cardboard box..Get it into a plastic tub, shoebox size so you can properly control FAE and moisture

You should poke some air hole in the bag, mycelium needs evaporation to pin correctly..Check the shoebox tek in the signature, as that is more or less what you have here
