i need help
    #3166736 - 09/22/04 10:13 PM (13 years, 6 days ago)

ok this is my first time tring to grow i posted a message in the contamination room and was told to get a second opinion here. My mushrooms just started to grow about 4 days ago but all of my mushrooms seemed to look like aborts. They have green tinge around the caps. I thought they might be contaminated so i posted pics. I had pulled one off that was about 2 inches long that had some black on it and black in the center when i pulled the stem apart. one prob was that i didn't scrape the tops of my cakes enough so i did that and then i noticed some green on the sides of 2 of my cakes. i took the 2 cakes out and pulled the mushrooms off the 2 cakes and they started to turn green within minutes. So now i only have 4 cakes. here are some pics. I was told this might just be bruising help please well i can't upload pics but i think this link should work to the other post shroomery.org

Looks like normal stuff.
I haven't scraped that verm off the top once.
Just flip the cake and set it on whatever verm is left.
If there were contams in it I would think they would have shown up in the jars durring incubation/colonization...

good luck

well my roommate ate them and he said that he is about half way there to a good trip. When they are underdevloped like that are they not as potent?

that sucks too. I got nervous and took those 2 cakes out then got interested in them so i cut them up. Oh well i guess it's a learning experience. I'm gonna take those 2 cakes that i cut up and stick them under a tree in my backyard and see what happens.

You could just make them into a casing...

But yea man, actually, when they start to mature fully they dont build up anymore on psilocybin or psilocin, so they are usually maxxed out right before they get fully matured.

actually, smaller mushrooms are known to be more potent. tests have been done and aborts actually contain more "magic" than the bigger mushrooms. let me find a link, i'll edit this when i get back.

as for the leftover cakes, i'd go look at outdoor teks on the website. i followed one and it's pinning right now. it's a little cold where i am during the night, but it's hot during the day... so i just put a humidity dome over it during the day. i can't leave the humdity dome on at night because otherwise i end up with pill bugs eating into the mycelium, uck.

I'd be very interested in that link, I have never heard of any such reasearch, and I have looked quite a bit.

Watch and make sure what you are seeing isnt blue. Green is bad but greenish blue can be ok. Cakes, mushrooms, stems, caps all bruise bluish greenish. If it happens before your eyes, its not a contam. They spread over uncolonized substrate as well and usually wont start on a colonized cake..enjoy :smile:

The quote about abhorts containing more "magic" is from none other than Psylocibe Fanaticus.

I'd tend to believe it after tripping off 3.5g of PFC aborts and 3.5g of mature PFC.
