Please help first time grower!!

Hey everyone. Alright, I just started growing my first batch of mushrooms. I used The Magic Mushroom Growers Guide and followed the instructions to a tee. Of the 12 jars I started with, 1 was infected during the colonization process leaving me with 11 for the terrarium.

I used a plexi glass box with a door and used that as my terrarium. I put the humidifier inside the terrarium beside the cakes, which are elevated from the bottom with a plastic screen.

My question is this. All the cakes that I put in there were fully colonized and were completly white, with a bit of yellow which was water damage. Now that some of them cakes are starting to grow some shrumes (1-2 inches long), i'm noticing some tiny green spots on the cakes. Thinking this was bacteria i destroyed one of the cakes to find that the entire inside was all white. I couldn't find any sign of contamination other than faint green blotches on the exteriror.

I'm growing P. Cubensis and the temps and humidity are kept at what the guid to told me. I'm wondering if this is contamination or if it is normal. here are some pics. PLEASE tell me what you think.

~Paul

the second picture looks like a bruise from handling.. if the color is bluish-green.. odds are it's brused mycelium.. if it spreads, toss it.

It's possible that they were bruised! It doesn't seem to be spreading. Could wate rdropping on the cakes bruise it?? I had an idiot friend over who lifted up the drip shield and held it upright right on top of the colony. I just about killed him cauz water dripped all over them.
