yes, more posts from the newbie.

i'm wondering if it is better to have freshly picked mushrooms kept at warm temperature while printing and whatnot? the reason is, i have a bunch of different mushrooms that i'd like to print, but i don't have enough room in the house that'd hidden away from the kitties. last thing i want is one of my cats to chomp into a deadly.

my plan is to print and store them out in the (non-heated) garage. is this a bad idea? pros? cons?

thanks in advance.

edit: ah, it just occured to me that i should be using the search feature a little more than i have been, sorry bout the inconvenience.

edit2: wheeee, definitely got some semis in here. tomorrow the patch should be livid with 'em!

When I print mushrooms for identification, I usually take the piece of paper and mushroom and put them inside a ziplock bag. It keeps the humidity up to help sporulation, and it helps protect the whole thing from drafts and cats.

I've found that my cats seem to have no interest in the various mushrooms I've brought home. The only time I've seen any interest is if one happens to dry into a relatively ball-like shape, and it happens to roll near one of them. Then it might cause a short stir of interest as a possible toy, but it doesn't seem to last very long. I understand the desire to keep anything potentially deadly away from them - the bags seem to do the trick pretty well.

Incidentally, temperature very definitely affects spore production. It seems to be dependent on species as to how it affects it.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
