Psilocybe cubensis first timer 2 CRUCIAL QUESTIONS
    #1036850 - 11/08/02 05:33 PM (15 years, 18 days ago)

Hi, I am using this little tray plastic bag kit, the shroomies have been growing for a few weeks now. I have two questions. First, is white fuzz all over the shroom stalks/ stems common or is that another fungus or mold over/ on them? It is just white furry covering, no other colors. I made the mistake of using tap water from my tub faucet for the initial spraying/ watering of the shrooms, I didn't not over water them or drench them, yet maybe it was the water being not clean/ spring water?

Second, if you pick shrooms before the caps open up, before the veils rupture, are they still active and safe to eat? Do the stems contain everything but just less potent or not at all?

I've been trying to read up in books and online on this site, want to get more into shrooms.

Anyone out there and not busy, please let me know about the white fuzz and the immature consumption questions. Thanks

The fuzzy white stuff on the shrooms is most likely just mycellium. From what I understand it is caused by too much humidity. I use tap water so I don't think that is a problem.

The answer to your second question is that they are active from the second they start growing and yes they are safe to eat at every stage. Potentcy is about the same throughout the shroom.

The stuff on the stems sounds like mycellium growing on them.
If you pick them before the veil ruptures you can still eat them, and yes there still active.

1.) the white fuzz just means your humidity is a little high...however you are doing your air exchanges, do them more often.

2.) just wait a couple of days for the vail to break....


3.) if you really had been reading up you would have found the answers to your question in no time....I dont mean to sound mean when i say it but use the search..or even better read the faq....I applaude your first grow...congrats....now im going to make love to my g/f

whether the veil is intact or broken has no proven relevance to the potency of cubensis mushrooms

The white stuff isn't a contam don't worry.

Tap water isn't the greatest but its ok. The main problem is actually not so much contams as it is the fact that most tap water is clorinated. Basically your drinking water with alittle bleech to kill shit and keep the water safe. Bleach isn't all that great for shrooms. humans have adapted over the years to take in alittle clorine without any harm. Mushrooms haven't.

The stems and the cap are equally active. They contain the same amount of psilicybin so eat the whole shroom and if you really want to get the most out of your grow, look into how to ingest the mycelium which also contains psyilicybin.

Hope this helps, please ignore any spelling errors as I kant speal wirth sheet

Thanks everyone for taking the time out to explain things and not totally scolding me. I didn't know the term for the white fuzz, I am very new and learning, I will read up lots. Sorry to sound so ignorant. I'm ready for the fantastic and fun-filled world of shrooms.
