URGENT:Gettin the "BLUES"
« on: June 20, 2007, 08:12:45 PM »

ok guys, I don't get this,

it has been 5 weeks today, myc in the jars lookin pretty good. until about 2 days ago when I noticed some soft bluing on the very bottom (not the sides at all) of damn near half (6) of the jars.

I am wondering if sitting all this time on their asses waiting and striving to colonize if they are getting tired or what?

Is it definately contam or will it go away if I turn em upside down so they can finish, breathe or something (you know, exercise of some kind)? I have had them at a steady 79-80 degrees in a dark colored double tubs with aquarium heater (PF incubator), and covered with a bath towel the whole time.

Another batch of 10 I have had in opaque tub, no heater and covered with towel and they are lookin allright taking awful long time for mycellium to cover the BRF and not very thick either. they are about 5 days (one month since innoc) behind the above batch. The MYC is covering ok but is thin and can  still see the subtrate, kinda of transparent. no bluing on those yet anyway.

thanks for inputs, guys

Bluing is not uncommon.
5 weeks for pf is not uncommon either.
If it's the pf classic strain they are slow colonizers.

Try to put up a few pics so we can see what's going on and you will problly get better answers.

My jars sat for six weeks before I put them in the terrarium.  After another week or two, they started turning blue, and it turned out to just be the same blue that appears on the mushrooms themselves, the blue appeared around the same time as the mushrooms were ready to start growing.  Maybe time to birth 'em...

ollright, but it is one the bottom of several of the jars of 12. a faded blue and not taking over but definately color, on the side just up from the bottom of one is looking slightlly yellowish also. Other than that most all cakes are getting the fuzzy looking fog almost furry but blurry on the sides and looking like it might be knotting or something.

savvy, anyone?

The yellowing could be contam or just metabolites

but without pics it's really hard to give you good info
