BLUE COTTON BALLS
    #2433910 - 03/15/04 07:14 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I recieved some prints from friend(Thanks again)awhile back and last night I decided to make a couple of syringes to give to a few friends.Inside a "glove-box" I open the print and made 3 syringes.But when I was cleaning every thing up I swiped an alcohol soaked cotton ball across the bottom of the glove-box and it immediately turned bright blue(same color cubes turn when bruised- except this was a bright beautiful blue-like I had spilled an ink pen). The first thing I thought was "contam's"but then I thought to take a little out of the print and wipe it -and lo and behold it turned "bright blue". Could this be done by a newbie to possibly id an active mushroom?
The reason I posted it in cultivation is because I dont think hunters carry cotton balls and alcohol with them to id and I thought that maybe someone here has stumbled upon this before.
I tried to wipe a wild print and see if the reaction was the same but it did nothing - what am I missing here? :wtf:

Yes you are missing something out here, what, i dont know, but somthing reacted in the first instance, that I suspect has little to do with the spores.

Maybe another chemical was used in the cleaning?

Nothing but lysol and the only spot on the glove-box that did this was directly under where I had opened the print nothing else-everything that came into contact with the print turned blue (tweezers,scapelbox etc..).
I thought it might have been on the piece of tape but that wasnt it either- I dont know - it has me confused :confused:

Most odd, but spores contain hardly any psilocybin, certainly
not enougth to show what you descirded. all I can do is guess
that some other chemical reaction is involved :wtf:

Or, that you were trippin :tongue:

edit, only just noticed your avatar :grin::thumbup:

I wasnt trippin or at least I dont remember if I was, but yeah it has me confused to I still have the cotton ball (keepsake).
Does this mean that the syringes could be contamed?

No, not really. Depends what
the chemical that caused the
blueing was.
