Help! Early pinning and discoloration...
    #2954166 - 08/02/04 12:52 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hi, a substrate jar had about 3 'shrooms when I looked into it... I immediately removed it and stuck it on perlite in a bucket. However, during all that, I noticed dark blue-almost black spots and cut the cake in half. The other side still has some blue spots. Also, the entire cake is not thoroughly covered in mycelium... in fact, there is still grain in the cake ALL over... but it is a solid form and also just as white. Is there anything I can do to make sure I get some fruits?

Thanks!

blue or black? Black spots are never good... blue could mean they are just bruised. But it sounds like the latter to me. I would have left the jar alone for a little while longer.. the pins wouldn't have grown to big. I had a jar once that did that, without the blueish black spots and I waited untill the shroom was developed to case the jar because it was in the first two weeks of innoculation. I'm not sure what you could do dude.. sorry man...

There was only one black spot and it was on a pin (the biggest one) and I discarded that immediately. I am hoping it is bruised because the blue hues resemble pictures I have seen online of bruising.

Thanks.

Do you think I should be concerned at all that the substrate it not totally taken over by mycelium?

Dude.. are you sure that the black spot on the pin wasn't an abort? I would be concerned that the substrate wasn't fully colonized because it makes it more vulnerable to contamination. once myc. takes over the entire substrate it is usually a little harder for them to get infected with a contam. That is my experience anyway. Furthermore, if you add to much water or humidity to cakes or casings that aren't fully developed you get the mildew/mold real easy. it's happened to me plenty of times...
