Help!!! Bruise or Contam?
    #3790573 - 02/16/05 07:45 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

first time grower here. shroomies started to grow last week and i start to see these blue and some yellow spots. are they contam or bruise? there are shroomies growing everywhere. should they not grow at all or stop growing when there is contam? should i go ahead and take out all the shroomies or let them keep growing if they are still growing? please help.

Contams will not necessarily halt fruiting. As long as they are growing let them go. edit: Your cakes look ok to me, though maybe a little dry.

You should dunk-and-roll all of the cakes for the next flush. Look how much better the ones you dunk-and-rolled are fruiting.

you are absolutely right. the two cakes that were dunk-and-rolled are growing twice faster, bigger, and more. i will definitely dunk-and-roll all my cakes from now on, even the first flush. they were growing so fast that i thought i had cobweb contamed. i had to seperate them to slow them down to make sure they are not contamed and then move them back in after 2 days. then they fruit like crazy.

there's a lot of water lost through transpiration during incubation, as long as
you dont have primordia or pins forming when you birth them, its always good to
dunk & roll befor you put them into the terrarium
