first time grow, need to know if these mushrooms are contams
    #1428291 - 04/04/03 10:16 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

hi guys
this was my frist grow from 2 kits bought from kingbong
i incubated them for an additional week ti let the mycelia colonize the surface
but then had to go away for about 2 weeks during which i covered the kits with 2 layers of foil and poked breathing holes and put them in the fridge

when i came back there was a very light brownish patch on top of one of the kits
i put the kits into fruiting and you can see the results below. the mushrooms in the first kit had brownish coluration on the upper part of the stem but pure white mycelia below. this corroborated witha picture of a king bong kit fruiting i have in one of my weed magazines.
some of the mushrooms have a dark ring around the outer edge of the cap. this can be seen in the pictures below as well. however most of the mushrooms appear normal.

beforemy dogs sisters niece consumes any of these mushrooms she'd like to know if they are contaminated and if so is it all of them or just the ones showing funny rings on the cap?

i really would appreciate some help on this topic, the kits for the most part are white and fuzzy withmycelia with blue bruising in some places.

laso, if i dry these babies thoroughly for say a month are they then safe for consumption by my dogs relatives??
thanks a lot guys

Oh! Btw, as far as i can see i, think you're drying them near a heat source on the ground but it's better if you use a fan instead of the heat source. Heat oxidates the pshycoactive compounds faster.
If they take too long to dry and remain moist, they can deteriorate or contaminate. A good timing to dry mushrooms is aprox. 48 hours, some do it faster. Make a search on Cult forum with the query "How to dry", you'll find plenty of procedures.

i love you guys!!!!
hehehe

maia - yeah i put them near that radiator for a day but not doing that anymore now theyre next to a fan on a very low heat setting almost at room temp. i read up previously on how to dry mushrooms, but havent been able to find anhydrous drying agents in my town its small): but will keep looking. i got 83 grams wet from the frist flush off the first cake
im excited! i love these babies, theyre so surreal and grow so fast!

the kit seems to be a bit exhausted now.have got 2 flushes off each kit now. the mushrooms that are coming out look thin and shrivelled. i reckon this would be a good time to try dunking the kits.will post some before and after pics soon, just finished term(am a med student) so have some free time on my hands.

anno,maia and bluesky - thank you so much!

anno - i figured its the spores depositing on the caps as well, but i couldnt get my head around the fact only 1 kits shrooms had them! the other kit however was a bit behind in fruiting which is why the lower shrooms didnt have the inky ring..
i put 4 caps to sporulate on some foil, am gonna have fun with my brf cakes...

take care guys thanks a lot, will update on kits,trips and the rest....
peace

ps-check out my other babies(ganja plants!)at my og gallery theyre now at 6 wks flowering, pics there are till 4 wks flower...peace

Hey Lizardking they look superb! I hope my kit ends up like one of those beauties.
I also get kits from kingbong... Lizardking, when you recieve yours, do you turn the kit upside down and shake the kt contents out onto the lid and grow from there? ie. Like a kid does to make a sand castle?
Thanks, nice work

hey nirvana
good to hear from a fellow shroomer in the uk!!

well i did take them out of the plastic box that way but grew them perlite side facing upwards..rather than the other way around. after the first 2 flushes though, the mushrooms started coming out of the bottom so have now reversed the kit to allow them to grow straight up rather than along the bottom of the kit and then upwards...hope this makes sense.

also incubated them for a few additional days as the perlite on top didnt really look colonized..

best of luck man
