Need advice ASAP!
« on: June 07, 2007, 02:46:12 PM »

So, 2 months in I had fully colonized cakes. Cold shocked them, because they were moving a little slow. Then I put them by an open window, with sunlight, and nothing happened.  Yesterday I moved them back into the closet, in the dark, went and checked today and TONS of pinning at the bottoms.  But when I looked from a top-view, I noticed a slightly blue fuzz on top of the most prolific cake, all of the little mushrooms are at the bottom of the cakes.  Is this something I should eliminate pronto, or is it the same sort of bluing that occurs with psilocybe species.  I need to know fast.  I am very excited, but a little sketchy now, I don't want to lose one of my few cakes.

I was thinking that too.  But if the mycellium has colonized so fully to the point that it is fruiting, wouldn't it be hard for another fungus or bacteria to take over?
I cut the blue out, I hope it was thorough enough.  Seems like a waste to FINALLY get pinning, then notice blue fuzz on the same day after 2 months.

Ya it would be hard but still not impossible.

Ya, it is bruising I am almost certain.  The parts of the cakes that I handled turned blue.  30-40 pins between 2 of the cakes, looking good.
