bluing cakes - please help!
    #374569 - 08/19/01 04:02 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

my mom has 3 cakes and 3 casings in a big rubbermaid terrarium with about 1" of perlite, and she fans and mists it 3-5 times a day. they've all been in there for a week. the cakes are all starting to turn blue, she wants to know if she should add more wet perlite, or dunk the cakes, or what? as for the casings, 2 of them have 1 pin each, they're kind of overcolonized and pulling away from the sides, she plans to deep scratch and add another casing layer, is that ok at this stage? please help my mom!

*dreaming of that face again - it's bright and blue and shimmering - grinning wide and comforting me with its three warm and wild eyes*

Bluing is ok.....

It's mostly a sign of 2 things.

One: brusing. When your mom birthed her cakes she probably touched them and handled them. This will cause the mycelium to bruise. Think of it like a banana that you throw around and how easily it bruises. Same thing....

Or two, theres too much humidity and your cakes are absorbing too much water....and if this is the case, then you're still bruising the mycelium:) So I guess there's only really one cause for it that I know:)

What you should do is try to adjust the humidity and don't handle the cakes. If you're starting to get pins just keep fanning out your terrainum and you should be alright.
