Well, after years of growing this same strain, I've never seen this before... a fresh batch of pins are turning blue. It doesn't *look* like a mold but to be safe I moved the affected cakes into a different chamber. Removing a few of the larger blue pins for examination, I find that the blue is only occurring on the outer skin of the shroom, the flesh itself is white and firm and healthy, so there is no rot coming from inside the cake and working its way out through the shroom. Also, some pins on the same cake only show the blue on one side, while others are completely blue or not affected at all. It's weird. Yes, I understand that blueing can occur from bruising and the like, but I've been doing everything like usual. Any thoughts or suggestions?
No, there isn't any drippage as far as I can tell. And the blue occurs on random sides of the shrooms... top, side, underneath. And like I said, not on all the pins either, not even on all the pins in a given cluster of pins. Not a slimy blue either, dry to the touch. Basically, they look and feel normal in every way except for the blue. I *did* leave the fan running a little long yesterday... could it be too much fresh O2 causing this?
