blue stem
    #2895262 - 07/16/04 12:30 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i've seen a couple of posts on this but none address my question exactly. i left town for a couple of days adn when i came back there were mushrooms growing inside of my jars that had just finished colonizing. the stems to a lot of these mushrooms are really blue- could this be a sign of contamination or are they just bruised? i also heard someone mention using a cotton swab to test to see if discoloration on a casing is mold or a bruise. does anyone know exactly how to do this? thanks!

"the stems to a lot of these mushrooms are really blue- could this be a sign of contamination or are they just bruised?"

Normally, when it happens it's a sign of bruising. If you want to go in depth about this, try searching for in vitro tek. There are some descriptions about situations like this.

"... cotton swab ... does anyone know exactly how to do this? "

Here's the same answer to the other post, where you asked the same thing,

"what are you supposed to test with a cotton swab?"

The existence or non existence of contamination spores.
Whereas bruising is just a discoloration and doesn't produce spores, contamination usually produce spores with a certain color. If it is contamination, the spores will get attached to the swab when you rub the affected area, if it isn't contamination the swab should come out clean.

Anyway, do you really believe he was murdered ? :wink:
