first time grow here
    #3166236 - 09/22/04 08:24 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

i'm not sure if something is wrong. It seems like all of my mushrooms are aborting. They all seem to have a green tinge at the base of the cap. Could the cakes be contaminated? I pulled one of the bigger ones off today cause it looked nasty and the stem had some black on it. Are all of my mushrooms going to continue to do this or is this common for the first part of growing

i read a couple of different files on it ordered a grow kit with the jars already pre made up. i don't remember seeing anything about cleaning the tops off completely i'm checking as much info right now to see what i did wrong. I was kinda excited to get started and might have overlooked something. But by not scraping the top would that cause this?

Well, those mushrooms dont look unhealthy to me and theyre probably safe to eat, but Leaving the verm on top there could result in a contam.

How did it end up on top though, didn't you flip the jars to slide the cakes out leaving the dry verm layer on the bottom?

I'm sure it's fine though.

i didn't take them out i was out of town when they were ready so i had someone else do it for me i didn't want them to sit until i got back. is it bad to handle the cakes. Also on the cake that i took off the one mushroom that has some black there was a little bit of green at the base. it wasn't fuzzy though just a little color.

Sometimes bruising can look bluish green it's probably just that.

But i'd say your best bet is to just let them grow up, and next time be sure to get rid of all of that vermiculite before birthing them onto the jar lids/foil/ whatever (Just get it all off when u open the jars but before birthing the cakes)

Good luck and im sure those will be fine man.

ok i scraped the cakes handling them as little as possible but under closer examination i noticed 2 of the cakes had some green on the sides so i just took them out i pulled the mushrooms off the cakes to look at them and the stems started to turn green in mins also i took some pics of the other ones you can see a little green on the small one in the middle of the stem.

The mushrooms look ok. That's just bruising.
Also, the verm on top is not a problem at all and might prove being a good thing, as it hydrates the cake from above. That's what we call a double ended cake.

Btw Moxemerald, that's not true when you say no one looks here. Sure this is a slow paced forum, nothing like cult where there're so many posts they disappear into oblivion in less than a day. Posting here has pros and cons, maybe slow but please have some patience... patience, isn't that one of the keys to achieve success with this hobby ? :wink:
