Grey powder mystery
    #3171650 - 09/23/04 09:23 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

My squirrel made an interesting observation that I can't explain...

The crappy shrooms he used to BUY from a friend of a friend blah,blah,blah were always a grey color and had grey powdery crap in the bottom of the bag.
The shrooms we all see and find growing in the most convenient places have a snow white appearance with hues of blue when dried.

what's up with these other dry grey nasties. are they a different strain or grown different or just really friggen old?

any ideas?!

Probably what your talking about is older stuff with powder shake mixed in. My large bags tend to get less white and pretty after about a week of piling up (throw a couple ounces in a trash bag every day as harvested and dried) along with some of the bigger aborts and that grew powder of them breaking up and such is just like the myc dried and rubbing off. It gets worse as they get older. Street shrooms usually have gone through a few hands and so have been broken up and are a bit older then what your growing. If you start sitting on pounds though you might start to see that at the bottom of the bag..

Couldn't be dried spores, could it?

Dried spores are very not grey and purplish/blackish when dried. mycelium and stems are greyish though..mushrooms powder (like for capsules) is also greyish..esp if you dont use caps. No problem NOS, thats what this place is here for. It helped me when I got going and was invaluable now I'm repaying..
