Outdoor growth...wierd...pics...questions
    #1406142 - 03/24/03 02:18 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Ok...this was a bit unexpected but here goes. A couple weeks ago I took some contaminated casings that I was about to throw out and decided to do a little experiment. I cut of any contam I saw as good as possible. The I diced up whatever I had left of the casings (not much). I bought a small outdoor pot and put a layer of vermictulite (unserilized but soaked it with a h2o2 solution), then a layered my crumcled casing on top of the vermiculite (only about an inch) and also sparyed that with h2o2. Then I put about 2.5 inches of jiffy mix on top of it all and again sparyed. I put it outside thinking nature will help combat contams. Well, where I live its still getting very cold out at night and highs of 60 during the day. The pot has been out for about two weeks in the sun. I spray it every day with a h2o2 solution (most of the water keeps evaprating). Today I was sitting on my porch and I saw two shroomie heads pooping out! Holy Shit...I couldn't believe it! Ya gotta love nature...check it out...

ok...here is the pot with both shrooms poking through. Its funny cause i put soo much damn soil on top and the last couple days I've noticed it was moving around, it didn't occur to me that shrooms were growing underneth.


ok..this one looks a bit blued on top. Is this from the bruising of trying to get thrught the casing soil???? Could it be contam????


This one looks good...


The pot smells very good! It smells mushroomy and soily...very natural and healthy smelling.


What do you guys think...weird huh...
Is the blueing on the first shroom from growing thourgh the casing?
should I be concerned about contams and pick though the casing or just pick and eat if nothing is visable?
thanks

I wouldnt think that you would want to eat mushrooms that grow from a once contamed cake. Can't the poisons from transfer from the contam into the reast of the healthy cake without you even knowing it, and wouldnt that be a bit dangerous to ingest?

Well, the spores from the molds could make there way to a uncontaminated cake. But I took a couple of messures to prevent this from happening and I also have the pot outside 24/7 to let nature combat the contams. Like I said, this was just an experiment to see what happens. As for growing form a once contaminated casing it is up to the grower. I hear very often of people cuting out contams and continuing to grow and some other poeple see a contam and imidiatley discard. It depends on many things (what specific contam was growing, how much grew, was is just surface deep, did it grow from the inside of the casing out ect.) The most repeated stament it "if in doubt, throw it out". But if you catch the contam early enough, cut it out and it doesn't appear again, many people feel safe with this. Its all personal preferance.

I was just impressed that they grew under the conditions they did. I'm not sure if I would eat them (although I think they are fine). That was I was cuiouse about...how they could grow under extrem conditions.
