Sounds like typical bluing.

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.

One example of BRF cakes that have been in the fruiting chamber for 4 days. They are all getting fuzzy and look like some knots are begining to form.
Am I right?

Great photo :cool:

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 :)

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

those look like they need more fresh air. I think the mycelium puffs up like that and sometimes grows mutants if there isnt enough air circulation. A friend had some that looked like that and the stale air caused some green mold troubles.

Here's a thought on the fuzzies. Last night six small straw logs were put together. When the BRF cakes were broken up they were very tough and felt dry, is this normal? Could the surface be getting fuzzy from a dryish cake now in the high humidity? Looks like strands of myc are reaching out to the moist air.

First off I want to thank everyone for getting me this far.
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.

Just be patient those cakes look good. The yellow tinge is sometimes caused by excess water in the jars but nothing to worry about happens to me all the time.Are you using a Tropicair setup?What strain are you using. .If you don't notice anything in a week you can try a dunking.

Give it some time... few more days, maybe 10-13 days is average for my cakes. Those ones look pretty good though. Have they stalled, or are you watching them constantly?

Its so hard to wait sometimes....but patience will work for you. I try to occupy myself with reading, getting ready for prints, busy stuff. I feel if I'm busy around them, they'll be busy growin' :D Silly I know, but I like to believe :)

I have three strains going, PF, GT and PE. The GT is the one pinning. I'm using a fish tank pump with a two hose outlet. I have it in a glad container pulling air through a coffee filter See pic. I only run the pump about an hour when I'm sleeping and an hour when I'm at work. Should I up that and stop fanning?

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.

I wouldn't bother with adding more water, you can drown pins. Pins shouldn't be directly misted or they can abort. I would give it 3 to 5 10 minute air exchanges a day.

Yeah just let em go for a bit. In my experience PE does not like cakes and is a weak fruiter on BR cakes. Which ones are which? Also a little indirect light helps sometimes. Chill a little on the watering, don't want to waterlog em. I know it's tough to not constantly poke and prod especially when you see those first few pins. But a little patience will go a long way for ya. Keep us posted though and feel free to ask any other questions you've got.

Your setup doesnt require "fanning" or "misting", it is an automated setup.
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.
