Trich usually does not grow on the fruit body, although I am sure it has happened. Butting up against the jar can certainly cause the bluing reaction.
If it did not wash off you are fine.

Am I right?

Should pop some mushrooms up here any time. Just remember to keep it humidified, and aired out.
I never get my cakes to pin before 14 days.
Enjoy watching them grow :)

There are other cakes and I'm going to follow your simple straw TEK. Proly enough for six good logs.

OK, I'm wondering if I should be concerned. I have 10 BRF cakes which all were inoculated at the same time and pretty much colonized at the same time. One has a set of pins which appear to have stalled and the rest of the cakes are just sitting there, taunting me. Here is the pics. It's been exactly one week since birth. Am I being impatiant? Should I drink a beer and chill? Another thing is the sides of some of the cakes have the slightest yellow tinge. Is that normal? Temps are 74 -78 F and RH at 98 - 99%. I'm running the bubbler (one pump supplies two hoses one at each end into a jar of water) for about 1 hour mid day and 1 hour middle of the night and fanning twice a day. No mist since the RH stays high. Any words of wisdom are more then welcome.

And yes I do look at this thing constantly. I know I need to give them some privacy. It's just all too cool though. I think the pins have stalled. They are starting to get a little blue. I have added water to the verm.

What is the rating on your air pump vs. the size of your FC?
You probly can just cut out the timer from the setup and run your airpumps constantly.
