Damn can i print this?
    #3106515 - 09/08/04 01:52 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I posted this in the grow log section, and maybe it was the wrong forum, so i'll ask the same question here.

This 7 inch long 3 in wide monster grew outta 1/2 substrate. It fell over and seperated from the substrate now. Will spores still drop even though the cap is not fully open? Or will it just take longer?

I really dont want to cut the cap and damage this beauty, but if the consensus is that I can cut the cap and STILL get a print then I'll do it:) Someone please let me know. Will it take a long time for spores to drop since the cap is not fully open. (yes the veil is no longer in place but has not dropped spores at all yet)

If the veil has torn, you will most likely get spores. It all depends on the shroom. Try it and see. Or clone the monster with cardboard...

It looks to be mature enough to get spores from. The veil has obviously broken so I would guess yes.

Certainly going to be a big print, that thing is huge.

to make your print use glass or foil, paper will also work, make sure its from several pages down in hte bundle. cut the cap away from the stem as close to the connection as possible, and set the cap on the paper, cover it with a bowl large enough to cover it and allow it to sit for 24 hours, lift hte bowl and lift the cap slightly to see if it has dropped spores. you may need to place a drop or two of water on the top of the cap if it appears to be a little dry.

Also always make sure your spores are dry before storing, I have a special glovebox for taking and drying spore prints, I simply take the print remove cap and let the prints dry overnight with a desiccant dryer in the GB to, this is very important with heavy (very dark) prints especially! Keeping that cap away from the open air is also important along with the print because nobody wants a dirty print NOBODY! :wink: GL
