Spores fall up?
    #2679706 - 05/14/04 09:26 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

How come spores get on top of the mushroom cap if you wait for a while after veil tearing to harvest? I assume it is because spores are very light and even a slight air movement would spread them everywhere, and perhaps the moist surface of the cap attracts them.

The only way I figure spores can be on top of the cap would be a mushroom above it droppign spores on it, air would spread them yes, but theres a very little chance it would be noticeable once they are all spread around.

nah even the tallest one can get them up there even if it's the only shroom in the bin it can and does happen defentaly not from a shroom above it. i think it's what he said air moving them around ect. there was a post a while back a guy was saying it was a type of brusing or some weird shit, telling everyone they were idoits for thinking the spores drifted ontop the shroom but i think he was the idoit.

It happens to me too, I would imagine they are very light and the slightest current can take them sailing away.

Yeah there's no way it's bruising since you can easilly wipe the spores away. I've only grown one strain, and I've heard it was a prodigious spore producer (Koh Samui), so maybe that's why it's so pronounced.

When the veil breaks, there is a very slight pop that could account for it going on top of a neighbor..just off hand thinking about it.

Spores are blasted out of the gills; they simply do not "fall". I also remember reading that it takes a spore hours to descend from gills to the ground in a vacuum. Since it takes so long to descend, air currents would be able to spread them around easily (and then stick to the moist cap).

especially when your fanning 3+ times a day.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

A friend had a 55 gal fish tank loaded with cakes and casings and he observed just how broadly distributed the spores can be. He had a manure casing in the center of the tank and several cakes and smaller casings surrounding it. One day he left for work and accidentally left his ultrasonic on all day. The shrooms on the large casing grew at an astounding rate during the day,and to his surprise they had totally opened up by the time he got home. Most of the other cakes and casings were ready to harvest also ,so he removed all of them and upon returning to the tank he noticed a brownish purple discoloration that had seemingly just appeared out of nowhere on his nice white perlite. For an instant he thought it was some sort of contam,but then realized that everywhere a cake or casing was sitting was still pearly white. They were,of course,SPORES! And a shitload of them at that. So anyway this long winded story is just to illustrate for any doubters the absolute explosion of spores that can proliferate from just a handfull of shrooms. That pearlite went immediately out into the compost pile in his back yard. We'll see what happens!

Try growing oyster mushrooms and watch them sporulate beyond control if you accidentally let them overmature... :eek:
