Mold contamination after harvest
    #25237644 - 05/30/18 08:15 AM (2 years, 11 months ago)

Hi!
I just harvested some psylocibe cubensis from my grow kit about 5 days ago, I fan dried them over night (although I couldn't get them crisp dry) and then put them in a plastic slip in a drawer. When I went to check them today I noticed that they were covered in white fuzz, which is wierd since they weren't like this when I check on them 1 day after harvesting.

I read about on the forums and I figured it could just be mycelium growing on the shrooms but I thought I'd better ask, just to make sure it's not some mold contamination, which would be unlikely given the cool and dry environment they were kept in.
Any feedback would be much appreciated. :smile:

I don't have an answer for you, however, I will say a cheap food dehydrator is a great investment for the food possibilities alone - jerky, fruit leather, fresh dried herbs for the winter, chillies, dried fruit like banana chip that actually taste good - plus for the cubes it allows you to be on point with dosage and preserves them.

That may just be mycelium right now but storing food items that are not bone dry or preserved another way is welcoming stuff to grow on it in the future, like our spores that like to germinate on grains or agar, it's just a matter of time.

you can dry them in the oven on a low setting, the heat doesn't make a noticeable loss to strengh , i have accidentally left them in the oven over night and they turn yellow but still got us high as shit

Dry them properly, bacteria/mold will get to them. You dont want a bag of smelly rotten shrooms that spent all your hard work on! Invest in a a $30 dehydrator, cheap and worth it.

The bag on the right looks real dark, where they like that before?
