Mould on drying shrooms...
    #1153344 - 12/19/02 02:05 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I started drying my shrooms in a zip lock bag with a dessiccant, but since the shrooms were a lot wet, after a few days, some white mould started growing on them...
I think it's just the spores that started germinating, so I don't think it will cause any problem.
What do you think?

Also... while they were drying, the caps were very dark (they are p. cubensis). But now that they are almost dryed, it is very light in color.
Is it normal or are they Golden Teacher?
This is due to the fact that I'm growing both strains together... but now I don't remember which cake is what...
What are the main features to distinguish the two strains?

Thanks

OK It sounds like you just had some mycelium growing on your shrooms that were in the bag. If this is true, WAY to wet to be tryin to dry with dessicant (or at least the amount you are using) MY suggestion is to fan dry them for at least a day, prolly two before poppin them in the bag with the dessicant.

I think that the caps lightening in color is just fine. I wouldnt worry.

You don't give any stain types to choose from nor do you give much in the way of describing the types you see growing....

I think floyd has it on the white stuff in the bag.....

Sorry! I thought it was clear...
I have two strains... the Golden teacher and the PF...
So: the first cake had small shrooms with dark head, when I started to dry them the cap turned even darker, but now that the drying is finished the caps are quite clear....
the other cakes that are growing have very light caps, so I presume they're golden teacher, while the first is P. Cubensis.
Is it right?

Just to know it... which one do you prefer?

Good night,

Andrash
