It's is normal for mushrooms to blue when bruised.
You should transfer the cakes to the terrarium before the mushrooms have grown that big.

I am heading on, past the great pf and on to the popcorn tek.  Knowing that i have no clue on where to get this white popcorn, i was figuring i'd ask and see if i could use just regular yellow cernals for this tek?  I also can not find where to get crushed oyster shells for the peatmoss/verm casing, would this be a problem or is the oyster shells optional?  When these jars i am preparing to do have fully colonized i was going to use some in bulk growing with a peat/verm mix, i am just wondering if standard Psylocybe Cubensis would grow large flushes and that if the bulk container i am using is to big for a terrarium but had a lid i was thinking on using it itself as a terraium by misting, would this be possible?
