GIANT Orissa Cap Printing
    #1206809 - 01/10/03 11:51 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Orissa India are renowned for growing monster fruits and I've got a whopper that I want to print but the only problem is that NONE of my drinking glasses are big enough for taking a spore print of the cap !

My question is is it possible to cut the cap into quarters and use them to make prints with drinking glasses or could I use a non opaque container to put over the cap such as a large tupperware container ???  :confused:

I've never had this problem before so any input would be great.

It's just that everyone always suggests using glasses which are opaque right ?

I just thought that the caps needed a little light or something to release the spores...

I've made LOADS of spore prints & syringes in the past but haven't encounted caps of this size before.

Hi Biotek - that monster sounds delicious! how much did it weigh, wet? and what'd you grow it on?

You use the word 'opaque'...... did you mean transparent?  :smile:light is not needed to drop spores.

Just let the cap dry out slowly when it's looking dark unerneath - use a washing up bowl or tub, and put a towel under the paper, so the cap can dry out gradually.

In EVERY document I've read about printing it ALWAYS says to use a drinking glass.

Well I'll try using a bowl or something it's just that I don't wanna ruin this monster print !

Hiya Shirley ! Long time no see !

This AMAZINGLY came off just a simple BRF cake (believe it or not) even though I normally make casings...

If you remember one of my previous PM's to you Shirley I told you that  I'm TERRIFIED of using pressure cookers nowadays after one exploded and TRASHED MY ENTIRE KITCHEN ! So I tend to just use methods that don't envolve pressure cookers.  :frown:

Luckily all my friends and myself were in the other room but it sounded like a nuclear explosion had gone off ! If we had actually been in the kitchen I'm sure some of us would have died !

Unfortunately I don't have a digi camera to post pics of the cap and the only scales I have are some shitty "weight watcher" ones that aren't very reliable at all but take it from me this Orissa strain is WELL WORTH CULTIVATING !!!

Just print them in a container.
I printed some Orissa's that were over 5" wide.

I never use glasses for making prints.

I'm still waiting for someone to break mj's record of 22" with the Orissa India.
My largest so far is 21".

Low fat ? LOL !!!

Sorry for the late reply, I've just finished making a Mazatapec casing !  :laugh:

I didn't even bother weighing it to be quite honest as it gives a WAY OFF READING compared to my friends digital scales.. I keep meaning to buy digis but I've been out of a job since November but I'm gonna get some as soon as I've gotta bit of cash to work with !  :wink:

Hiya Roadkill.

I found this giant a bit hard to measure in height as it kinda went all corkscrewy if you know what I mean..  :tongue:

These Orissas throw off loads of mutants I've found. I had one shroom growing literally upside down !!!

Sorry !

Just realized you mentioned it was made from cloth.

Gotta stop skim reading !

Unfortunately it's too late to measure it now as I've already started printing and have the stem under a fan which has shriveled somewhat but it was nowhere near yours or Mushroom John's giants.. I'm gonna have to raid my moms sewing kit for future experiments !!!  :laugh:
