Black goo
    #3272823 - 10/24/04 09:36 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I left home for 2 days and when I returned I found a 15 gram shroom growing against the side of my container. Everything seemed normal about the shroom except for black, ink like, goo on the cap. On the perlite under the shroom was more of this goo. It does not look like it is attached to the mushroom as it was easily wiped off. I am just wondering if this is a contaminate or if maybe a water drop had landed or formed on the cap thus producing this black goo. It seems weird to me that this goo was on the perlite because if it is a bacteria what could it possibly be using for food on perlite.

How open was the cap? Spores tend to collect on cap surfaces. It would make sense if there were a bunch of spores that some would collect on the perlite as well. Does the fruit look fine otherwise?

The veil must have broke at least a half a day to a day before I came back. It very well could be spores. I just dont know how the spores could have ended up on top of the cap.

Almost forgot. Everything besides the black goo seems completly normal. When spores fall are they heavily concentrated?

Well, some of the goo got onto a cake and I have put it into a seperate container and nothing seems to be happening with the goo. If it were a bateria that had been running rampent when I was gone I think that it would we spreading over the cake.

As long as the fruit looks fine, it sounds like a textbook spore explosion. They can turn into a goo if there are a lot of them in a high humidity environment.

Is this goo on the caps ?
One of the psilocybe characteristics is having a viscid pellicle (it feels ans looks like goo) on top of the caps.
Adding black spores would make it look like black goo.
Anyway, pics would really help.
