Light Blue Tint on cakes>? -<.^.>-
    #3458120 - 12/07/04 02:24 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

This is my second try at this. I tried a couple years ago and only got enough for me and a friend to trip once. This time I'm doing much better, but I have these 2 cakes that have a slight blue tint to them. This didn't appear until after they were in the terrerium, and it seems to be a color change, not something new growing on the cakes. They've been in for about 12 days. I was just wondering if anyone else has run across this and if their shrooms turned out OK.

Here's the details: I'm growing off of 1/2 pint and 1/4 pint cakes. The quarter pints are the 2 that are blueing. My humidity (digital gauge: $22 from Lowe's) reads, always from 94-96%, and the temp is anywhere from 72-77, depending on the light, which is only a small nightlight bulb, which is on/off about half and half. 12hrs-12hrs. Perlite humidification. Drip shield, mesh screen on bottom keeping cakes off perlite. Cakes are also still on lids for handling purposes.

I also have a half pint cake that, after 2 days in the tank, developed about 10 pins. They all stopped growing and now the cake is just sitting there doing nothing, it's been in for 12 days. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

If you're feeling knowledge-able about this situation, go for it, and thanx. Hope it's not contam.


The set-up.


Here is one of the cakes that is blueing on top.


Here is the cake with all of the aborts. Also slightly blueing on top.


This side of the tank has the most growing. But not it's not very much, at least compared to what I expected. Most of the cakes on the right side of the tank have been in for only 6 days.


And this is the only nice one so far. Wish there was more.

Thanks for any help- Peace

Cubensis mycelium turns blue when it dries out or is bruised, or toched, or otherwise damaged, and when it runs out of nutrition and starts to die. Put them on wet perlite, so they can take up as much water as they need.

damn, cakes dying without ever producing and shrooms, that sucks. I think I'm going to try dunking them.
