First crop... but blue fuzz??
« on: May 08, 2010, 04:00:53 AM »

Hiya dudes, my first cro is pretty much ready to harvest now! Wahooo!
Only problem is there's some blue colouring in the mycelium now. I know they can bruise easily but this has only appeared today and i have yet to touch them!
Just wondering if this is normal or is it anything to worry about?
 :huh:

The cakes probably just need to be hydrated they will blue when thirsty. After you pull that flush off dunk them in clean cold water for not longer than 24 hrs, then roll them in verm. Make sure your FC is 99% RH. It's off the hook, Chains. Nice work.  :mellow:

I had the same thing happen to me on one of my grows. I think it is as dub said. Lack of water. Rolling in verm after the dunk is key because it helps keep that moiture level high just like barkmulch does. Good luck... nice rip.

Yeah my first cluster of mushrooms ( probobly about 2.5 grams dry) went straight from the cake to my mouth on my first harvest. Nothing like the rewards of your labor. Plus freshies are the best in my book.
