Contaminated shrooms? bacterial blotch?
    #1607356 - 06/04/03 10:06 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Sorry about the huge image. I'm growing shrooms in a kit inside a fishtank (the lazy way) but i think i might have got some fungal infection on some of my shrooms as you might be able to see in the picture on one in particular. Being a microbiology student, you'd have thought i'd be good at aseptic techniques but maybe it was the fly(ies) that got stuck in the fish tank.
Anyway, any idea if it'd be to consume the shrooms still with the manky caps? it doesn't seem to be anywhere else and the smell inside the kit seems normal.
I'm not sure if it's a bacterial blotch or not because i can't see any white colonies or anything, just a strange fungus like growth and brown blotching on a few.
Hope someone can shed some light, thanks

its hard too tell from the pic but it looks like mycelium growing on the caps...if it is they are fine...also that one cap looks like maybe gills are poking out of the cap on the top? I had that happen to me too...but I assumed it was just a deformity(sp?) and was ok..I munched it down...and I"m still going strong :laugh:

EDIT: btw what strain is that? puerto ricans are notorious for having super aggressive mycelium and I have seen pics where the mycelium is growing on the caps and stems and have heard you can even have shrooms growing on shrooms

I'm using a Psilocybe Cubenis kit from www.kingbong.com (?28 inc p&p), as you can see (maybe) it's growing through the perlite layer due to me having to flip the cake over when it started pinning out of the bottom.
Thanks Stupaod, it's the shroom at the back i'm worried about. so much so i plucked it out and ripped the cap off. The stem's fine though and is drying

It's this sort of thing (other than the strange mycelium type growth on the caps) the cap seems to have turned dark brown but on closed inspection, it's just coated in it as it can be rubbed off. Is this a sign of a bacteria infection?

I'm pretty sure they do but you could probably save on p&p and buy it from an american site.
