If there was yellow discoloring in the mycelium when I planted it in the soil/vermiculite growth medium, will the actual mushrooms produced be contaminated or bad to consume?
What if there was a more severe discoloring like green or black and it was planted?

yellow discoloration can be mycelium waste that is left behind, or a contaminant. The easiest way to check is to see if there is any odd rotting or bacterial smell going on in the jars/casing. Green mold is bad, id rather not consume it even though i have read that it wont really harm you.

Thanx for the reply. I didnt have a funky odor or a green smell. The actual substrate did smell a little weird(i've never smelled it) , but nothing rancid.

Reality is the only word in the language that should always be used in quotes

Catch me on the reverb and expect delays.

Black is bad too! It won't neccessarily smell bad.
