A friend has a flatcake which is quite old.(around 2 1/2 months) He put it in the cabinet and forgot about it until a few days ago and decided to give it a go and see what would happen.
When he took it out of its container he noticed what looked like old myc piss as well as a little bit of a dingier yellow from pieces of straw in the substrate. Nonetheless it went in and grew new myc very fast all over it and produces several pins. The new myc that overtook the old stuff began turning a sort of canary yellow almost immediately. This isnt a seperate growth that would indicate a contam but it is the myc ,itself,which is turning yellow. It then seems to sort of whither and lose its fluffiness.
My question here is not so much about whether or not to eat them(he has plenty of others and isnt very concerned about these few),but he would like to preserve the strain by taking prints from the apparently very healthy shrooms growing on it. Do you all think this would be Ok?
