When Is Blue Mold NOT Blue Mold?
    #4060824 - 04/16/05 12:24 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Argh. Someone please help. What IS this stuff? It's blue so at first I'm thinking it's just staining on the cake itself, but then it's only just appeared today and to top it off, it don't smell so good. Not a shroomy smell at all. Should I just throw these cakes out after saving what growth I can?

I've read here that if the blue stuff "wipes off" then it's a contam. I don't know how you'd go about "wiping" it off but I just took a sterilized knife edge to the blue stuff and it scraped right off... so is this contamination then?

Help!

Yep, sounds like mold. You can use a cotton swab or a piece of tissue to rub the spot too, but if it came off with a knife that's good enough. Sucks man, looks like there are good things happening otherwise.

Yes it's v. tragic and I am properly upset... question though: I harvested the good things and by all accounts they smell and look perfectly healthy, as most of their growth occurred long before the penicillium/blue stuff arrived. I've been doing this for a couple years now, this is the first time I've had blue mold, and my previous experience and gut reaction tells me that these shrooms are fine to consume... but could my gut be wrong? Are they secretly toxic and should I toss the lot?

An appreciative Landotter awaits your advice...

if the mols suddenly appeared while the cake was already fruiting, pop the shrooms off the cake asap, and throw the cake(s)in question away before they contaminate your other cakes, if its not too late already. the mushrooms should be fine as long as you catch it quick.

Under his instruction, I taped drumsticks to his head and turned him into a sort of mummy, or perhaps a caterpiller in a cocoon. He remains this way for about three hours, making bizarre noises, pretending to be a new species that must learn to walk and talk and eat, etc. And he communicates with other life forms by way of the antennae on his head. Eventually we jam a tube from a waterbong into it's mouth and figure he's learned all he needs to know.
