OH NO! Dark blue/green stuff!
    #527309 - 01/21/02 01:34 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Today I wake up and notice some of my cakes have this kinda of dark blue coloring on them! AH I think to myself! What is it? A contam. It is only on the outside of the cakes, but does anyone have any guesses as to what it is. And um, is it bad for my shrooms. I heard that shrooms off contaminated cakes are a bad idea to eat.

please help me.

thx

peace

Sounds like it is only bruising but watch it carefully and make sure it isn't growing rapidly or anything.

Yes it is a bad idea to eat shrooms of a contaminated cake unless you can POSITIVELY identify the contamination as harmless.

I had two cakes do that before... everything was fine, I had been careful not to touch them and then one morning I got up and noticed that most of the cake had a blueish cast to it that eventually took on the blue color like when a fresh shroom is bruised. Don't know what it is but the cakes produced and I used the shrooms----then another cake in the same terrium got green mold on it and I removed it but the "blue cakes" were history after the first flush. I try everything I knew to save them but I eventually just threw them out because it was a hopeless battle.....

tannis, cakes that have a blue hue to them and arent bruised are water deprived. Check the formula on your substrate, and up the water some. Increased humidity in the terrarium is also a good idea.

Thanks!!!

Humidity may be the culprit...I live in the mountains of Western Maryland and we have winters that are more like Connetticut and humidity is a problem no matter what I do....

Thanks again!!!

This happened to my cousins too right after he added water to his perlite, said it might have splashed on the cakes. Turned bluish green in a matter of minutes. Surely contamination wouldn't happen that fast would it?

Is the glass half-full or half-empty? I say it is both.

Fresh357 is right, if it's not bruising the likely culprit is low-water. Are you just using perilite in your FC? If not, up the humidifier and the mycelium will take care of the rest.

As for the water splashing on the cakes, they are very delicate and that could have resulted in some mild bruising.
