Purple on the cake?
    #3829455 - 02/24/05 09:41 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have one cake in my fruting chamber that had a mushroom grow out to the side and then had other mushrooms grow out and hit them, makeing a messy clump of un-orginized growing mushrooms. when i looked today there was a purple cast to that side of the cake. The mushrooms are growing fine. is this an infection? a bruse? should i worry?

most likely spores dropping on it... are there any shrooms above this purpleness???

most likely spores. the mushrooms that have already broken their veil do not have to be directly over the purple spot as the spores are light enough that they will float and settle at will.

yes, they're spores...this is why many of us here will pick our shrooms right as the veil is starting to tear..so the shrooms dont sporulate all over all the caps and stems and the casing and everywher else for that matter lol.

the spores when wet(freshly dropped) are purple.  when they dry..they will be moreso black in color.

dont worry :heart:
