What is this crazy blue stuff??? (pics)
    #4612314 - 09/02/05 02:17 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

So my first grow project is just starting to bear fruit, but I'm concerned with the way some of the BRF cakes are looking.
Here is a photo of my rubbermaid fruiting chamber. So far one cake is fruiting like a bastard but the others are not far behind.

What is this blue stuff on my best cake??? Is it bruising, hydration loss or maybe something more dire?

Also, here is a picture of one of the cakes that is lagging. There is a fine white fuzz on one particular pin anything to be concerned about?


I'm very excited to see fruits, they have become like my children! Any help/advice that can be thrown my way would be much appreciated.

it could be bruising. here is how you tell the diff between bruising and a contam. take a q-tip and gently wipe it on the blue area, if something comes off on the q-tip then it is a contam but if nothing comes off then it is just bruising.
best of luck
:peace:

Thank you backup. If it is just bruising, will it affect later flushes? Is that fuzz on my pin anything to worry about?

Hey what kind of set-up are you using? what is the white stuff on the bottom? this is my second time trying this. I have no problem colonizing but I always seem to mess up the fruiting part. first time i did a casing method but this time i'm trying a cake method. i'm using a clear container with a plexi glass shelf and under that i have water with a mister which the mister makes fog and then produces humditity in the container. I figured this would be the easiest way. Also how long did it take before you started to see fruiting.

Looks OK man, worry when things don't "LOOK" healthy, also smell.

do the test and take it from there.
the fuzziness is just from the humid environment, no worries.
did you dunk before fruiting?
:peace:

Thats bruising and looks like your cakes aren't getting enough water. You should try to increase your humidity in the chamber. Look into making a poor man's pod. Also, dunk and roll. Its well worth the extra time. Lately I've been dunking in coffee and coffee grinds. Amazing results. Just submerge the cakes, refigerate, the shake off extra liquid and roll in dry vermiculite.
