spore print trouble
    #1531130 - 05/08/03 04:30 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Cannot make a spore print. Fresh mushrooms were picked off of a BRF cake. Cap was removed and put on tape covered index card and covered with a glass. Both times cap just turned soggy and left a dark black/blue liquid underneath. Is cap being placed under glass while still too wet? Thanks for reading.

how long are you leaveing the cap in there....10-15 hours should suffice for a nice dark print....

Could be a lot of moisture between the gills, how thick is the liquid? You're not doing anything stupid like soaking the caps before printing?

Caps were there 24 hours both times. Liquid was not quite as thick as maple syrup. Actually it was about the same color too (a little bluer). Glass and index card were both wiped down with rubbing alcohol. Maybe one or both of those weren't completely dry when glass was placed over cap and it didn't let the alcohol evaporate.

Put a small hole in the top of the container and put a filter of some sort over it and let the cap breath a little.
