I'm having this problem too...

and, if your subs drying out, dunk the cake, (if it's already dunked, ROLL the cake in dry verm) mist the cake, place in fruiting chamber, and for the love of gawd, don't touch it, and quit using them for badminton birdies!!


what is 'rolling' the cake in dry verm?

Hi all,

I've got a Huatulan cake here with a blue patch that's getting bigger. It's not bruising from handling and i doubt it's bruising from dehydration. It's also not green or powdery looking, but i'm preparing for the worst.

Contam?

looks like regular bluing to me...can be cause by it being too dry or the humidity is too low, but i'll say it's too dry. the cake shrank a lot, is this the first flush?

Yeah, looks like bluing to me too. Like siamjim said probably to dry. You see the way the myc has pulled tight (for lack of a better term) over some of the substrate? It's kind of matted down. That looks like drying to me.

Yes this is the first flush. The bic pen is a variation of the drinking straw tek, so i suppose the cake gets as much water as it needs. The cake is sitting on a bed of vermiculite, and the container has drainage holes on the bottom. One odd thing i noticed was that the cake seemed to be aggressively colonizing the bed of vermicuite, even though there's no food down there. Maybe thats where it's getting too much water from? Either way, i'm glad it doesn't seem to be contamination.

judging by the location of the bruising/bluing
i'd guess it's from being birthed out of it's jar.
never saw a cake turn blue from too high rh nor water,
but dryness will cause bluing.

Okay..first thanks to Hippie and all of you who contribute with pearls of Mycology wisdom. A foaf has been lurking around here for a couple of months now and because of that has a rubber maid tub full of knocked up brf cakes, a 8 x 8 inch casing about to come out of the incubator in a couple of days, and 4 cakes in the terarium of which two are pinning which brings him to the purpose of this post. ....whew ! that was an unecessarily long sentence but hey, it's been bottled up for awhile now. So, super excited, out of 27 incoced jars 0 contams !..crap I hope that didn't just jinx him. But! Now on the cakes that are pinning his heart has both fluttered at the fruits that soon be, and sank at the sight of some foreign sight. enough with the flowery words. Can someone identify wether this is contam or not? It's Blue Fuzz! Terarium stays around 92-95% humidity(never higher) and tends to fluctuate between 69-76 degrees. Leca and airstone bubbler humidifies and He fans about once a day. Peeks in the terarium way more than he should. This is his first time ever and 'cause there was still myc in the plastic jar after birth he decided to leave it in the terarium and now baby mushie is growing!
