Bluish contam?
    #3268459 - 10/23/04 06:03 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Just picked a few shrooms off one of my cakes and they have a blueish color on the stems and I was wondering if these were contaminated or not. The cake itself looks fine except for the spot where I picked the shrooms from has some of that color there as well. It doesn't look like the pics I've seen of green mold of blue-green mold. The largest shroom of the bunch opened up and dropped its spores overnight, so I was initially thinking that this might just be coloration from that. However, the opened shroom has a hollow stem, and the color is on the inside as well. So here's some pics for consideration. I tried to take one looking up a hollow stem to show the coloration in there, but it didn't turn out. Any ideas?

dont worry,

They bruise blue.

mycelium can bruise blue too.

When the caps open up they should release spores that are purple. Is that what you got?

Aye, that's what I got.  There's a patch of purple on the perlite where spres fell as well.  I was hoping it was just bruising, but was unsure since it was like that when I picked 'em, and I haven't really handled the cakes themselves.  Just didn't wanna eat something that'll make me sick, better safe than sorry.  Thanks.  :thumbup:
