spores won't drop
    #2321675 - 02/10/04 05:18 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I have tried to print with three different caps. All would not drop their spores. The strain is ecuador. I am still new at this so maybe I'm just timing it wrong. But I waited until the gills turned dark black. I'm growing using the mmgg but instead of fruiting them as cakes I am using a 2,3,and 4 cake casing using vermiculite only.Any responses would be appreciated.

You waited a bit too long, best to print just after or as the cap opens up. If the gills are already dark, then spores are droping or have droped already.

Ya, you want that virgin purple-gray gill color, but a fully open cap.



To get a nice dark print, cover your cap with a glass just big enough to do the job and leave it for a day or two.

It shouldn't take much for it to drop spores - even after some sporulation you should see visible amounts.

How long did you leave the cap for printing?

I am growing Equador and I always wait til they start to drop the spores before taking the caps for a spore print.
I put them in a sterilized jar with the lid on loosely, in a draft-free place. I usually wait 2 days to get a nice spore print.
Good-luck
