Does mycelium overtake other fungi?
    #1292180 - 02/08/03 11:30 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I have been told by a good friend who is taking anatomy and micro-cell biology at University not to worry about some Penicillin contams that I got in some jars because P.Cubensis mycelium has the feature of containing a chemical which acts upon the structural proteins or something of other fungi.  In other words, once a mycelial culture is well established, it will overtake and kill other fungi such as Pen.  Seems fairly reasonable to me, wondering if anyone has any info on this... :laugh:

I suppose it can happen, but I've never had a contaminated jar recover to the point where I thought it was a good idea to use it in a casing.

Well, penincilin is farly harmless to humans. As far as my experience can tell, i think trich is much more agressive than pen., where trich is succeful to take over the inside of the substrate, pen. usually fails.

this kid had a lightish green mold that came from a contamed syringe. All the jars grew and collonised well. Just some green in a few spots that is surounded by white. Used it to spawn and it did well fell to green after a couple flushes. Nobody was hurt so what the hell ya know.

Considering there's a probability nothings happens, did your brain told you there's also a probability that something could happen and everybody got a ticket to the hospital or even die ?
If you play this game, you're playing the russian roulette but unlike the russian roulette, you'll never know how many bullets are inside the gun.
Write this in your mind, YES, people have got sick and YES people have died for eating contaminated mushrooms, "green" is not a name for a contaminant, there are many different "green" molds, some make you sick, some may kill you and some don't do a shit, even its action differs from person to person, like being alergic to a specific compound, ie. penincilum. "So what the hell ya know ?"

Goin down the road is a crap shoot. Livin could last you a minute who knows. One day you are hear the next your not. If your allergic to something I wouldnt be eating any sort of fungus. Its not like the mushrooms are covered in green. the shit hangs at the bottom and slowly eats the casing. I have been around it for some time now no bodey is dead. If I was allergic to penacillin I wouldnt be eating bread cuz who knows. I dont like contams. I in most cases just chuck them. But in most cases they are dumped. So what the fuck to each there own . Hell only the strongest will survive man its natural selection. So what the fuck. Like Nike said JUST DO IT!

That's fine with me. I'm not going to discuss your position, if that's ok with you and you know what you're doing then you should be ok but don't play so often with probabilities though.... or is that the probabilities play with us ?

I hear you . You just have to feel out the situation. Some nasties give me a bad vibe. While others dont seem to.
Contams are not safe and to any body out there that comes in contact with contams should always be careful.
