Default blue mould

Hi everyone i have a question.

I started to grow the mushrooms and all went ok until the last two days (that are the last days of the gowing cycle) when i noticed that a blue mould has grown in some zones of the box and has make a dent in the lower part of some mushrooms.
I immediately harvested the mushrooms and before placing them to dry i've cutted the bad parts with a scissors (when i made it i've noticed that the white part of the stem becomed immediately blue,is it normal?)

What i wuold like to know is if i still can eat them or if is better to throw them away.

Someone can tell me how to act please?

Thanks

The blueing is bruising. The "blue mold" was most likely bruising on the cake. Pictures help

Ya, I am a Mold Inspector/Biocide Applicator and I have never seen blue mold, so when there is blue on your shrooms it is a good sign, well it means that some of the psilocin and Psilocybin have escaped....from what I have been told it is like a reaction from the damage. I wonder how much the potency goes down cuz I purposely bruised some before giving em to this kid cuz he wouldn't shut up about these blue shrooms...

Is this website a Shoomery+Mycotopia joint venture ? A site created from members of the two?

Trick...rub a wet q tip on the discoloration...if it comes off on cotton swab...its mold...if not...and its blue...its blueing...from over handling, over heat, or lack of moisture.

That is classic bruising, one way people can tell before they buy shrooms if they are real psilicybin or not.

Mushroom Cultivation Forum
Psilocybin mushrooms possess psychedelic properties. They are commonly known as "magic mushrooms" or "shrooms", and are available in smart shops in many parts of the world, though some countries have outlawed their sale. A number of other mushrooms are eaten for their psychoactive effects, such as fly agaric, which is used for shamanic purposes by tribes in northeast Siberia. They have also been used in the West to potentiate, or increase, religious experiences. Because of their psychoactive properties, some mushrooms have played a role in native medicine, where they have been used to affect mental and physical healing, and to facilitate visionary states. One such ritual is the Velada ceremony. A representative figure of traditional mushroom use is the shaman and curandera (priest-healer) María Sabina. Medicinal mushrooms Currently, many species of mushrooms and fungi utilized as folk medicines for thousands of years are under intense study by ethnobotanists and medical researchers. Maitake, shiitake, and reishi are prominent among those being researched for their potential anti-cancer, anti-viral, and/or immunity-enhancement properties. Psilocybin, originally an extract of certain psychedelic mushrooms, is being studied for its ability to help people suffering from mental disease, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. Minute amounts have been reported to stop cluster and migraine headache

Psilocybin mushrooms (also called psilocybian mushrooms) are fungi that contain the psychedelic substances psilocybin and psilocin, and occasionally other psychoactive tryptamines. There are multiple colloquial terms for psilocybin mushrooms, the most common being magic mushrooms or 'shrooms. And Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principle active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Psilocybe cubensis belongs to the Strophariaceae family of fungi and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis. The mushroom's cap is reddish-cinnamon brown to golden brown in color with white to yellowish stipe and will turn bluish/greenish when bruised.
