TRUE CONFESSIONS - of an amateur mycologist * 1
    #23949183 - 12/22/16 03:35 PM (2 months, 6 days ago)

Hi Folks
This is meant to be a fun thread for all to post in - and read through when you're bored.

The idea is pretty simple. We amateur mycologists get really passionate about our hobby and our brains get focussed in weird ways and we do weird things that normal non mushroom obsessed people don't do and wouldn't understand.

Please use this thread to confess your peculiar Mushroom Cultivation RELATED thoughts and behaviors. Don't worry about posting something that other people have already posted - part of the fun will be seeing how many people do that same weird things.

MYCO SINS: ... In addition to your myco peculiarities you can also confess your MYCO SINS here... things like the time you blew off sterile technique and dig agar work in dirty clothes on the kitchen table, the time you forgot that mono for months and found it looking all disgusting and sporulated (post photos please), that trade you never completed and still feel guilty about, telling your boyfriend or girlfriend you can't go out (because you have to harvest or rather do agar work), etc. E

EPIC NOOB FAILS:  Confess your most embarrassing noob failures here. :smile:

Although all are welcome I will moderate -  if things get trolly or way off topic - the confessions area about mush cult related things OK?


--------------------
listen carefully there might be something worth listening to...

I'll get this party started...

Whenever I buy groceries I check to see if the containers are PP5 and think about if they would make good cultivation containers.

Every time I see one of these I wanna...

Steal it
Mount a PSI regulator on it
Start a big ass bonfire under it
Make the worlds largest LC and let it colonize for a month
Filter the 10,000 gallons of LC through a cheese cloth
Curious to see the yield of dry mycelium aha

I can say that one long term effect that cultivation has had on me personally is that in learning how to identify good growth, healthy mushrooms, and ideal conditions, I slowly turned that kind of observational focus on my self and realized a lot of things that were making me unhealthy (food, environment, mental thought patterns  etc).  I'd say that I'm a healthier person because of growing and that I'm much more aware of how conditions and environments have effects on large and small levels, physically and mentally.

I think in a way that idea is very cliche, but I don't necessarily think it's one that is really embraced to the extent it could be in people's lives.  But...what do I kno...I smoke weed all day and play with mycelium, so my worldview might not be the most common :rofl:

When I walk outside and smell mushrooms after a storm, I hunt them down like a dog.

I like blinding leafs take, and I can totally relate. Mush cult has changed a lot of my habits and food choices because I realize more intensely the connection. Also, I noticed that everything looks like mycelium to me... Clouds, salt stains on the road, white haired old ladies :lol:

Does anyone else have fantasies about the potential that lies within the spaghetti sauce aisle?

Are you that creeepy person pacing the storage bin area of the store pulling out containers and looking at them ... for like 45 minutes, then walking away without the perfect sterlite solution?

(Oh wait, that was me)
