throw it away now. if you break it onto straw that green will grow faster than the good mycelium. take a print from the shroom and go from there.

Unless is it an infection inside of the mushroom, you can still clone from the material inside the mushroom. Use of the flesh in the cap is usually what is done, but anywhere in the fruit body will work. Be sterile and cut open the body and take a small piece of the flesh to either agar or slap it into a grain jar that has been PC'ed and cooled. Plus you will see the benifits of running with clones (usually better fruiting characteristics:))

PS the mushies are probably not poisonous. The safe thing is always to just toss them. But most likely you are talking about a case of trichoderma and is probably isolated on a small piece of uncolonized substrate. Personally I would eat them, have before and will again:) with noooo siddes aeffectss that I cann tell noff :smile:)
