Blue = bad, means there has been some oxidation and loss of potency, happens as a result of bruising / mishandling.

Equador is quite an easy strain to cultivate. Strains don't vary that much in potency, even physical appearance is pretty much the same. Different strains do better on different substrates and casing. So choose the strain that works the best with what you've got.

is this the truth? if it is, then what's a good casing strain (pins and flushes evenly throughout casing surface)

true to some extent. For example, orissas, and many of the Thai strains do better on poo/compost.

Equadors and B+'s are good to start with. Creepers and Brazilians colonize BRF extremely fast.

...so I've heard.
