Yes. This is a popular usage rather than tossing them.

:laugh: of course you can. that's what got me started on my outdoor grow, contaminated cakes. i had someone suggest that i start "that outdoor grow i've always wanted to do"... try it man. it can't hurt you to try something new...

also, you can use spent cakes and spent casings in the same way.

The spores will always be there, and if the myc had grown a little it will still be there too. It will grow when it has the right conditions outside, its kinda spontaneous. But it all depends were you live and what your weather is like.

This seems extremely odd to me.

If the main reason of tossing contaminated cakes is because the contamination could potentially harm you (and because you don't want it to spread) then why is it safe to use them outdoors? Indoors, were you to make a terrarium just for contaminated cakes to fruit you'd probably be told that it was extremely unsafe, so why is outdoors ok?

I guess when they are placed outdoors somtimes the contams die or somthing like that. Nature is a mysyrious creature.

How is it that wild mushrooms can grow outside, there is much more contams out there but somhow they still are able to do it.

Well the earth is an extremely large place, so the law of averages dictates how a mushroom can survive contamination with the millions of areas it has to potentially grow.

Having contaminated cakes grow outside seems to point to the issue of contamination indoors being incorrectly perceived. If it is possible to do outdoors, then why can't it be done indoors?

Maybe outdoors there is certin things that cant be done indoors. I dont know what they are but I know contamd cakes can grow outdoors and the mushrooms growing from them are usually not contamd. Not every cake will survive but it has been done and is possible. You can try doing it indoors but with all that extra contam sitting around it couldnt be good for your health.

And maybe it can be done indoors but nobody wants to leave them in their house I guess.

I'm not asking this because of some personal mission of mine to someday cultivate contamination indoors, I'm just saying it doesn't make sense.

The argument for throwing contaminated cakes is usually the health risk involved; even if the mushrooms appear to be healthy or are on the other side of the cake from the contamination it is still recommended that they be tossed because of the potential risk. But if outdoors the mushrooms can be consumed, then this argument is less valid. Unless the contamination magically disappears (or is overtaken by the healthier mycelium, but this still doesn't mean the contamination is completely gone) I don't see why the potential health risk is no longer there.

So this makes me think that the argument for having contaminated cakes indoors is incorrect in some way.

well you have a point. I dont have enough info to help you but I would just steer clear of any contam infested cakes, not matter if they might be safe or not. Its not worth the risk.

Bring up a new post on this you might get some good answers from sombody in the forum.

I wasn't specifically asking you, Leukoism, I was just posting the question to the thread.

And I agree with steering clear of cakes with contamination, luckily I don't have to deal with that at the moment. But thanks for your thoughts.

More input, anyone?

I hate contamination. Pink, Green, Grey and Black. Makes me sick; makes me yak. My mind recoils in horror and i have terrible nightmares about it. i have lost half my jars (this round) because of it.

i dont know much, but i have been experimenting... i will post results as soon as possible... my experiments include, but are not limited to... killing the contam w/ everclear before it matures; this actually seems to work, but is probably unhealthy in the long run... ive tried cutting off the contam early in combo w/ the everclear technique or cutting off the contam and then crushing up and casing the rest....... all and all its just f*ckt... my only good advice at this point is throw it away as soon as possibe, or you too could end up with 1/2 your jars :[ ... oh yeah... relevance/pertinence ..... my outdoor cakes never seem to work... but i agree with Mycocat.... nature has its own built in asswipe and in a lab there is no where for it to go but deeper into your substrate... outside it can disperse...... dont you notice that... even though cobweb can take over quickly... it always seems like the mushrooms are stronger than the contam??? i guess i dont really know
