Hey guys this is my first time growing, (golden teacher), here's some pics

(Bear edit - off site links for pics not allowed)

The blackish/purple stuff I'm pretty sure is spores since I can wipe it off it's very purple-ish and I had one huge shroom higher than all the rest that doesn't have any on it.

However there is some discoloration in the stems?

Please let me know if these are good to go after drying, thanks!

Those are good to go now lol!
As long as the discoloration is not due to foreign molds/fungi. But those look like handling bruises, spores and just natural peeling of the fibery stalks.

The bruising is normal and is a sign of potency. And I been hearing claims of the spores being potent to.

Lol. Yes no actives in the spores.
After years of eating mushrooms I figured the spores added to the naseua and try to pick them before they turn black from dropping spores. Prefer before the viels break.

You probably shouldn't have let them open all the way, this can often stop further flushes coming from whatever medium you are using. Still, they look pretty good!!! Did you give them natural light or did you use artificial???

I recently got some running too and I have some black looking stuff in my tubs. It looks like it came from the veils though not sure to toss or keep.

Those are spores !!! Good Job! 

That is not mold. It is a natural part of the life-cycle of the fungus you've chosen to cultivate.

Are stems coloured purple from spores safe to eat or should they be tossed?

Stems discolored from spores dropping is safe. If you can’t harvest in time, you’re gonna have this happen, not a big deal.

You'll be consuming spores anyway, the gills in the cap have gazillions of spores on them.
