If the cake has mold on one side can you still make good spore syringes from the mushrooms?

I had the same question,

shouldn't it be ok to grow the shrooms to maturity then cut the caps off and move them to a sterile environment where fresh spores can be dropped? Or is the contaminates somehow merged with the shrooms biology thus affecting the newly produced spores?

If the mold has sporelated (most likely if you can see it) then it's not worth the risk. What you can do is remove the mushroom split the stem, take some inner stem material and do a peroxide bath. You can then chop it up in the h2o2 and pour it into a jar of grain or Karo using as little h2o2 as possible so as not to throw the moisture content of the grain off. There is a lot you can do whether you'll be siuccessful or not is another thing. :wink: GL
