Hmmm.Contaminated Aborts??? Safe to ingest?
    #1553162 - 05/16/03 03:07 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Ok. A friend had a casing gone 90% bad. he managed to save 2 areas of the casing where there were a bunch of pins popping up. he tossed them in the terrarium and crossed his fingers.

It turns out, there is one OK sized shroom growing from each little cake he has salvaged. The rest of the pins aborted.

The normal growing shrooms look completely fine, albeit miniature versions of the last flush. There is some slight bluing on one of the stems however, and I dont know if this could be a contam or if it's just the psilo'.

So...Can anyone tell me what a contaminated abort would look like? Or a contaminated shroom in general? is there any certain smells? These aborts have that shroomy smell, along with that tangy sort of odd smell too.

My friend really wants to take the aborts as he wants to salvage what he can of the casing. The cakes that are growing in the terrarium now (the 2 pieces salvaged from the casing) have no mold on them anywhere, so I'm assuming everything is OK.

ALSO..He scooped out some extra area that had a small bit of green mold..the area also had 2 aborts growing, This was 2 days ago. He put what he scooped out into a plastic baggie and rolled it up and set it on a counter to dispose of later. However 2 days passed, and he forgot to toss the bag. He looked at it today, and the pins are still there, they have not aborted yet, and the 2 small mold areas haven't spread to anywhere else in the bag. Hmm.. What would you guys make of this? Pins safe to pick? They look fine.

Aborts in general are NOT safe to eat if they have very dark caps.
