Spore Print
    #1827012 - 08/18/03 05:48 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hi all. My FOAF has got a Mexican cap that they are trying to get a print from, it's been about 28 hours now and they have had a look at it and none of the spores have fallen off. The spores have also turned a green color. They followed this tek exactly http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23994
is the green just bruising? Will the spores drop off soon, thanks for any help.

:lol: do you really think so  :smile: wonder who wrote it.  :smirk: But really do you think the spores will brake off in a day or so, and the green color just bruising?

green is not normal on a mushroom - you sure it's not rotten? spores will only drop if the shroom is ready, and if the cap is moist but able to dry out without fugging the glass. doesn't sound good.

MY FOAF has just had a look at it, being very careful and sterile. They don't want to mess with it to much. The top of the cap has lightened in color. The spores are a green/blue color they would say, and it just has that mushroom smell not unpleasant at all. The spores are not as close together as they were when they first put the cap in.

Trust me it is.  They bought a tube kit from a head shop and this is there last one.  Which is why they are taking great care of it. they would never pick there own, better to be safe than sorry they think :wink:

I think he may be referring to the "gills" of the mushroom, instead of the actual color of the spore print. He originally stated that no spores have fallen off.

Some caps will lay down very poor or no print at all (in the case of sterile mushrooms). It just happens, try another. Use air exchange and a drop of water on the cap if it begins to dry out. One way to tell if a mushroom is sterile is when it ages, a non-sterile shroom will start to get a purple-black colored buildup on the gills. A sterile shroom will usually have caramel colored gills, or similar to the cap color.

This is talking cubensis, I have no idea why you would have green gills except what is caused by the "bluing reaction". If it is indeed a sterile mushroom it would be possible you are viewing bruising of the gills.

i thought it was nicely written . :wink:
tip: use a #10 fish hook (sterilized by flame) hook it through the top of the cap .
this gives you a good sure grip, and makes it easy to cut the stem . 
edit; some mushrooms may require a larger hook  :laugh:

Thanks for the help. The print has now gone. They have no shrooms left and it is just a case of which syringe to choose from.
