Can someone tell me if this looks ok?
    #3353295 - 11/12/04 09:16 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

A foaf's cake is starting to pin and he asked me to post here asking if this one looks ok. There is a little bit of white on the pin, this one just emerged this past few hours. Is this just part that has to still turn brown? Or is it a contam? i know if there is myceliun growing on the cap then its too humid in there, is that was this is?

they look fine to me, i have like 7 that seem a little blacker than others and i panic-ed and almost took them out but i'm glad i didn't, cuz they got rather big for Creeps, that soapy stuf on the bottom looks strange, maybe it's just the pic but that is really really weird. And that bluish spot looks to me like bruising but it's hard to tell b/c the camera goes out of focus near that spot. You can test what a bruise looks like by pressing in a small part with the cap of a pen but i woulndt do that unless you were Really worried, well GL.

Yeah your doing just fine, cakes need a really high humidity. Dont worry about a little mycelium growing on your mushrooms. Also you have a little bruising towards the top of your cake but nothing to worry about.

yeah the blue is a bruise from where a mush was picked before. It looks white and foamy at the bottom because that is some fluffy mycelim that has some condensation on it.

Hey, I was reading yall's posts, and hawksapprentice says you shouldn't worry about a little mycelium growing on your shrooms, but what about a LOT of mycelium? One of my cakes has only one abort growing, and it almost looks like a round furry white bush cause there's so much mycelium growing on it. Is a lot bad? Will it impact the potency of the shroom? Maybe it will just make that particular one taste really nasty? Any thoughts?

Any identified aborts should be picked right away so it won't rot. :wink:

I've had some really bad myc growth on some mushrooms before.  When I pick them, myc stay with the mushroom and I just brush it off before drying the.  The fuzz ball can look dense, but it really doesn't account much.  So when you dry it, you are eating very very little myc.  Don't worry about it.
