Need Help!!
    #3189969 - 09/28/04 03:00 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hey I am a first time grower and well i have my jars set up for the myc to start and well its growing good im just concerned because there is only like an inch or two of white around the edge and the whole center part is looking green or greenish its hard to tell the edges of the jars kinda have crap so its not totally clear and it seems the more the myc grows out the greenish center grows with it keeping the ring of white. I used up all my spores and its good drive to go get more so i'd rather not toss em. I will try and get a picture to show better as soon as possible. Another question is: Is it safe to take spore prints from contaminated mushrooms? I think thats all if i remember ne thing else i will add and please say if ur not positive i'd rather not die from someone taking a stab in the dark at answering this question. Thanks.

Sounds like you have got the mean green. But of course there is no way for me to be sure, without a picture.
If its infected with green mold, i would toss them.
The next time try to keep an uninnoculated jar for control. This way you have a much faster way of finding out, where in your procedures it went wront. But to me it sounds like your needle wasnt sterile.

I took a lighter to the tip of the syringe and made it red hot before i did any injecting so i dont think that it was caused by the needle. If it does grow and turn white and the greenish goes aways does that mean that its gone and safe to eat or does it mean that it just grew over the mold?? I will try and get those pictures and make sure if it is or not and still need the question answered is it safe to take spores of infected mushrooms to grow more??

It depends but most probably it will grow over the mold, that's why you have to break the cake after birth to see if there's mold growing on the inside.

Yeap, get those pics. Taking spores from infected mushrooms can be risky and a waste of time. Try reading about cloning a piece of mushroom, it's safer and not that hard to do. Of course, don't take it for granted ....

Yes, an healthy broken cake can still grow mushrooms. Best option is to break the cake after birth. If you don't do so and if the cake is really contaminated, it can contaminate other cakes inside the terrarium.

The tissue sample has to be sterilized first. If it's done right, the sample will grow and take over a new substrate and it will be safe. If it's done wrong, the sample will possibly get infected again and contamination will take over the substrate. Please, read more info regarding this issue.
