WTF?????
    #1086464 - 11/26/02 03:28 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

i made 8 spore prints, and not a single one came out. the caps are really wet...is that where i messed up? are they supposed to be dry? i took one cap and squeezed the spores out of it, then sucked them up. i filled a whole syring with it, but i know that ish got contamed. what am i doing wrong??

How long did you leave them, how did you make them? If they're real wet sometimes the gills can seal off and you have to leave them for longer than 24 hours.

they've all been in there about 72 hours. i just took one cap and put it in sterilized water and shook it up, the water has a lot of spores in it, im going to suck that up and see if that works.

Wow, 72 hours, damn, I've had some fruits that just don't drop a lot of spores.

I put a little parcel of dessicant (a teaspoon or 2) in the upturned jars over the caps to help it drop it's spores.

From what I remember you saying in an earlier post MsPacMan you picked them when the veils had just broken which can be a bit too early for taking prints. You should realy wait until the caps have matured abit and start to release a few spores.

a friend once told me that a good indicator on when to pick is after veil breaks and u can actually see the purple spores on the stem. so u know they started dropping.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

yeah, wait for the cap to go almost convex/wavy and look for spores on the stem like that guy said. also, if your ambient rh is too high you'll get a soggy mess.

You can`t miss mushrooms that are ready to print, there will be spores all over the place.
