Mass Contamination, The Aftermath (Caution, Grotesque!!)
    #1388001 - 03/18/03 12:47 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

This bum asked me to get some film developed and see if I could help him. He said it all started innocently enough. A bunch of healthy poo-straw casings. He was also experimenting with cased millet. The millet only casing got a case of the greens. Shortly after this one of the larger csaings got some cobweb. The bum said he thought he had stoppped the cobweb by dumping some salt on it. He said it was all downhill from there. The pics you are about to see are casings that have been in fruiting mode for 6-7 weeks. A grand total of 8.5 grams were harvested and these were single shrooms which luckily made it (7 grams came from the cakes). The moral of the story is to immediately removed any and all contamination from your growing area, especially if you have a single, large growing area. The bum is looking for pointers on what to do with these casings since the weathe routside is just gettig right for this sort of thing. Below are pictures of the resulting carnage as well as places he thinks may be good for "planting" outside.

here is most of the cadavers, two more casings have already been planted as of a couple days ago... that's right the death toll is at 10 casings (a total of about 15sqft cropping surface) and 12 cakes:


here is one casing that has been "planted" on top of the ground in a well aged mulch bed. this is some sort of wood chip milch and lots of leaves. the bum covered the casing (flipped upside down) in the mulch and leaves. he wonders if this has much of a chance of producing fruits???:


here's a casing that was buried underground so that the top was flush with the ground. same mulch bed, about a foot to the right of it the bum told me. this one was covered with a combination of the mulch leaves and some fresh surplus casing material:


the bum has this piece of a 55 gallon drum that is about 1.5' deep. he's thinking that he could drill .5" holes in the bottom and toss the casings in there and pray for the best, what do you think?:


and finally, a good look at the surface of one of these casings. here you can see a wonderful mix of green and cobweb as well as perfectly healthy mycelium underneath. in fact, when the casing is removed from the bins you can tell that the caontamination is primarily on the surface. regular sprayings with peroxide kept the contam from totally boooming and the underlying mycelium continued to grow rhizomorhpically and the casing had to be continually patched. apparently the contamination was really good at preventing it from pinning.:

This guy was hoping for some input on whether or not the mulch beds would be a good place for him to dump these. Should he case them with the mulch? Should he bury them or leave them on top of the ground? The substrate as a whole is unharmed and the environmental conditions seem primo right now.

I would do it. My buddy has been tossing his contaminated stuff into a compost pile all winter, but the conditions thus far haven't been very favorable for growth or fruiting. He's hoping to see something before summer, but he's not certain anything has survived.

But, as you know, I wouldn't mix contaminated with uncontaminated stuff, even outside :smile:
