Spore Print Contamination?
    #2127971 - 11/21/03 07:32 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I'm a little worried, as I always am when it comes to cultivation. I always hit mold somewhere along the line and I'm fucking sick of it. Oh well.

Question; I went to go make some prints right now with three caps from my casing. I cut the caps off and placed them on foil, ect. the regular routine. After laying down my caps and covering them with some coffee mugs I noticed some green fuzz on the surface of my casing. This casing is pretty much spent so I decided to take it out and throw it away not before inspecting its core for more green mold. To my dismay I found 30 % of the casing to me infected with the green, the other 70 % still strong with the white. My question is, can green mold spores infect the actual mushroom itself? Can they someone climb their way up the stalks and hide out with the other spores in the cap just waiting to fuck my next batch up? The mushrooms I picked look pretty healthy to me, nothing out of the norm. This is just a worry and I would love some feedback..

Also, question #2, how many hours should I let these caps drop their spores?

Thanks

YellowSub..

Yes.

They are airborne, they can very well settle at the gills of the mushroom.

>how many hours should I let these caps drop their spores?
12 hours is usually enough, sometimes up to 24 hours.

I remeber reading a post saying let the spores drop for a few hours then replace the tinfoil so hopefully the contaminated spores drop first and you get rid of them.

I've never tried this though, so I don't know if it will work.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

My friend had a cap that was made in the same way with the same green mold, he was able to make 2 prints and a syringe out of that one cap, and the spores were fine. I'd say your probably in pretty good shape with it..
