Well I've got the materielas (styrafoam cooler plexiglass for fanning,spray bottle 1/2 pint jars,brown rice flour,vermiculite and perlite).I was wondering if I can take a spore print from a P. Cubensis next time I go hunting.Is there anything wrong with doing that?

the problem from using prints from a wild mushie is there is a great chance of getting a contam since u are gathering it from the wild. U may have luck but i sugjest starting the print on ajar. That way u can be assured an uncontaminated organism.

You should read the caulk post about the plexi-glass window.

No, the print would be extremely contaminated. I have done this before. I got the most rancid contam ever it was purple and frothed out of the jar. It made me dry heave and I had to dispose of the jars and their container. You should just buy a print. Unless you know how to do agar culturing and mycelium isolation. Leave this to the pros.

If you are taking prints from the wild you should probably bring some latex gloves and some lysol (to spray yourself down with) and place the cap in a jar (or whatever container you are using to take the print) as soon as you pick it. That way there is minimal risk for contams. Depending on where you are doing your hunting, you should have a fairly good chance of pulling a non contaminated spore print from the wild. Hope that helps!
