Bizarre inner stem color
    #2788708 - 06/12/04 11:49 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I harvested some mushrooms today and when I went back to look at them later, while they were drying, the bottom of the stem where I pulled it from the cake was a greenish-blue color. The shroom looked fine in every other respect and looked good while it was growing, no contams. I think its trauma from picking it but want to know for sure. Thanks.

This is the shroom I had a question about. The bottom of the stem is that geenish blue color. It looked bizarre and I wanted to make sure it was okay before munchin'. This is my first time growing so while I am familiar with bruising none of the other shrooms of this type brusied like this. Thanks.

It's bruising.  When you cut or bruise a mushroom, the damaged area turn that color.  This is because cells have been ruptured.  The cells contain psilocin, and when this is exposed to the atmosphere, it oxidises to that color.

Judging by the deepness of the color, that shroom has a nice amount of magic in it.  :smile:

does the deepness of the color of bruising point towards greater potency?

Supposedly.  I don't believe it 100%, though -- I think that there're also other factors that influence the blueing.  I can't say for sure, though -- it's not like I have the equipment or information to do any kind of in-depth study.  :wink:
