print problems
    #2459977 - 03/22/04 01:25 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

my friend has attempted to make a spore print twice, he picked the most mature shrooms outa the batch and placed them on foil.. both times the shroom just dried up..Im assuming his problem is bc his shrooms stopped growing and did not have the caps fully open up, i was wondering if he could get some help on how to fix this? thanks

well when you pick a shroom to print from it must be sporulating meaning the veil must be broken and spores droped on it then you can pick it and cut the stem off and put it on foil then put a cup over the cap to keep it freaher longer with that methed i get like 3 dark ass prints so dark that each coulda been two or three dark prints but that is only with caps that are like 4" round or bigger

Some caps wont print,but thats usually the exception rather than the rule IME. onetime is very right in directing you to wait for the caps to fully open and begin dropping spores before you attempt to take a print.

yes but the main problem iis that they stop maturing right as the veils begin to break, and he needs to know how to keep them from stopping growth

There is just a few little holes in the top of the plastic to let it breath.

If the caps are drying up, put a cup or jar upside down over the printing cap to keep humidity high. If the problem is serious (e.g. you live in a particulary dry environment) then perhaps you could cover the printing cap with a larger box or jar and include a small amount of hydrated perlite or even just water in a small container like a film canister under the jar to try and keep humidity up. I've never tried that myself, but IMO it might work. If the caps dry too fast, the spores wont get a chance to drop.

Sometimes a strain is grown that is sterile , or will not drop spores . Cousin IT had several batches of second gen Malabars that did this . It did not matter how long he let caps open up , did not matter how long he let caps sitting on foil , they just refused to dump spores , size of cap has zero to do with ability to drop spores . Even tried to old drops of sterile water on the cap to loosen them , with no luck . Sometimes you just gotta accept THE MUSHROOM GODDESS SAID NO !
Good Luck
