How is your humidity? Does the cake look dry? It might be the lack of moisture that is causing it to bruise(turn blue). What kind of setup do you use? Post picks if possible.

When i used to use cakes, they would turn blue after a flush, then would re-whiten after a 8-12 hour dunk. Likely dehydration, like he said check humidity and possibly dunk if you havent done so already.

The only other explanation is that you handled the cake too much causing it to bruise..

No, if you've dunked it once it should be fine but check to make sure your humidity is up there high enough. Increase the number of times you spray per day. It sounds dehydrated to me. If I were you I'd try to rescue it by raising the humidity. If all else fails then another dunk would be in order but thats all up to you.

so should i not fan so much? i have perlite, but is there something else i could get to keep the humidity high? is a cool mist humidifir worth getting? the guides really don't say much about what to do after you put it in a fruiting chamber.

sorry guys im a newbie and trying to reach perfection

Do NOT spray directly onto the cakes. Use a sprayshield or the side of the terrarium. If a little mist builds up on the cakes thats alright but you don't want large water droplets sitting on the cake.

fanning directly can do it.
