What colour should the inside of shrooms be? (pic included)
    #3045100 - 08/24/04 06:38 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hi all,

Apologies if my question is dumb, but I am a very newbie to the whole mushroom culture, only having tried them fresh for the first time in Amsterdam about 1 month ago.

But I guess we all gotta start somewhere!

Anyway, brought a shroom kit back from Dam (sorry don't know what type), put it in a bucket with about 1/2 inch of tap water in the bottom and covered the top with cellophane (made some holes in it first), gave it a few days then started misting with mineral water. Got a good lot of pins which grew bloody fast! I left them on Sat morning looking quite nice, veils not torn, returned on Sun night to find them fully opened and looking pretty mature (caps turned up and black!).

Anyway picked them and plan to eat them on Friday. My question is, are they supposed to be green inside? It's not all the way up and when I swabbed them with a damp q-tip no green came off so I'm assuming they are not mouldy. Just wanna make sure they are 'safe' to eat as I don't fancy chucking my ring though inexperience!

Here's what they look like:





Thanks

p.s. This site is fantastic - I have learnt so much and stayed up far too late reading all the posts! Starting to look like my shrooms now!!

Yes, the bluing reaction is a common occurrence with Psilocybe mushrooms. :grin:

My advice to you would be to take some spore prints of those babies on foil.

the top picture looks like severed cadavre limbs....nasty.

IMO the bluish colour is from bruising as a result of the cutting, so it's fine. But I'm sort of a noob to all this too and I would wait for a second opinion from a more experienced member :oogle:

Don't forget to dry them like I did on my first batch :smile:

What is the reaction that causes bluing? I seem to remember reading that it's oxidation of psilocybin/psilocin...is that right?

Thanks for the feedback.

Dry them rather than eat them as they are? I thought drying sucked away some of their potency?

If dried correctly they will keep almost all their potency. Don't use heat, though.

You won't be able to eat all those in one dose. Fan dry what you don't use to save their life. Some potency is lost but it's no big deal.

Before you do dry them take some spore prints so you can grow them again!
