I would say that is bruising. What did you expect after malhandling them like that? They look quite dry too.




Like I said, I thought it looked like bruising. But it's not from being manhandled. There was no bruising at the time of scraping. The blueness appeared slowly over the course of five days. I agree they look dry at the top. I was trying to avoid misting them, because nilla claims to not mist his cakes, and uses the paper towels for hydration. But watching the tops of the cakes shrivel over the last week drove me nuts so I misted them with the others in the FC (though less volume, and less frequently). It does not seem to have had an effect on the blueness or dryness. I'm glad to see no-one  thinks this is a contam, though. I didn't think so.

Low humidity is another prime cause for bruising, so if it wasn't from handling them then it is likely the bruising resulted from dehydration.

I don't want to discredit Nilla's tek but it seems to leave a bit to be desired. You have to keep in mind that Nilla did not use a shotgun terrarium, but rather it was fully enclosed, so moisture was unable to be lost. As a result misting was not all that necessary.

On the other hand, you are using a shotgun setup, so without misting you are constantly losing moisture without replenishing it. If you wish to test whether Nilla's tek is effective or not, you'll need to replicate all of his variables.

Good luck.:thumbup:

UPDATE
------

I've got some pins and intense blue. The pins aren't anything special, but the blue is crazy. One of the cakes has mycelium on the paper towel, then after the mycelium on the paper towel, there is blue! I don't know how this can be unless this is a contam... I don't know. I am starting to wish I had just dunked and rolled these cakes.

Is the paper towel portion of this tek necessary? Why not just keep them on your screen? I mean you've got Perlite...

Because paper towel is what nilla used...

Notice the pins are forming where the cake touches the paper towel? And notice in nilla's thread the same thing occurred? I believe that is indicative of the cake utilising the moisture in the paper towel, and again why I think nilla's cakes threw off a few chunky ones.

If you compare the three pictures it is clear that it is a difference in lighting.

Its interesting how the cakes are beginning to colonize the paper towel.

Theoretically shouldn't the yield be lower since the cakes are spending energy on both colonization and fruiting, or would the extra water make up for energy spent on colonizing the paper towel?

I'll post another pic later. The pins are a little bigger but not much. They show no signs of being monsters.
