good to eat or not?
    #2831193 - 06/26/04 05:34 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

hey guys, sorry i dont have a pic but today i got home from bein away for a day and found one of my cakes completely dead. im not sure if it was a contam or if i over humidified/under humidified the cake. the cake was light blue and when touched (i only touched it to harvest the shrooms cuz they looked ready) it was easily broken and bruised a stronger blue very quickly. i am wondering whether this was some wierd kind of bruising or some kind of contamination. either way, the shrooms were very breakable and were bruising like crazy. im currently trying to dry them using a fan but i dont wanna go through the trouble if im not going to eat them :confused:

well, this is my first time growing so im not an expert on how much i need to spray yet. also, i read about over humidifying causing aborts and thought that might have happened to me. right now i dont think that the shrooms are contamed cuz they turned a very dark blue now that i fanned them dry. it looks to me like i just picked them a little late after they aborted. so my question now is after a shroom aborts, does it become in any way harmful if left unpicked for a while?

Regarding the cake and the shrooms, i believe you are ok. Just try to lower the humidity a little bit.
Regarding the aborts, you should be careful and pick them as soon as you spot them or they will begin to rot and might end contaminating the whole cake.
Did the aborts had any distinctive smell ?

You need to give us a better description or take a pic. It could be some fuzzy mycelium or cobweb. Anyway, i think you're ok but you'll have to wait and see if/how it grows.
