safe to eat??? *PICS*
    #2240410 - 01/13/04 10:27 PM (20 years, 4 months ago)

first time growing ... i just picked these ... concerned about:

-the purple staining on the stems of 2 of them ... bread mold?
-the greenish blue tinges everywhere
-the general 'rotting' look to them (haha)
-the small green dots - though i think those are burns from salt that i sprinkled on

also, is it ok to eat the white mycelium around the base of the stem?

thanks for any help!

everything looks fine except whatever the fuck that yellow stuff is. and the fact that these fruits look wayyy mature.

what type of mushies are we looking at here because they dont look like cubes.

well the place i bought the spores from had them labelled AMAZONIAN PES ... overall i got really funny shaped fruit ... there were a lot of blob type heads and gross bulging fatso ones. somebody suggested there was a co2 buildup in the tank? i don't know ...
the yellow doesnt really show in person ... think it was the lighting/camera. thnx

I can get that feeling from looking at the pics. Maybe it was a hard fight to survive with lack of air, maybe too high Rh, i don't know ....

Probably, yes.

Yes. It increases your sexual potency but i'm joking on this one of course :grin:

Eat 'em. Or better yet, find a human guinea pig...maybe your little brother or one of his friends.

Just kidding, man. I don't see anything to be concerned about and I agree with ^^^MAIA^^^ 100%.

If you don't allow your fruits to mature to this extent, they will look and taste much better. The rotting look you refer to is due to over-maturity and the presence of spores, most notable in the tatty-looking caps. The next step for these babies is mushroom heaven.
