Little Black Spots all over my Shrooms
    #3408032 - 11/25/04 02:23 PM (12 years, 16 days ago)

Hi folks,
I got one of those kits from the NL. One of those "just add water" thingies. The mycel was already injected into the grain, I just had to put the whole box into lukewarm water for six hours. It worked fairly well! Could already harvest some shroomies, small but potent!
Problem is: the second flush is in full flourish now but little black spots appear all over the stems and caps. Not on all of 'em but on quite many. Bacteria? Somewere I read that it might be a sign of "over ripeness". Could that be? Shall I just harvest (the caps are still attached to the white stuff, didn't split yet)? The shrooms are fairly small though (cubensis).
The "manual" which came with the kit states, that you have to "rewater" the kit after every harvest, meaning to dunk the whole kit (grain+mycel) in water for couple of hours. Do I have to whatch out for sterilty, doing that? I just touched the kit with my hands after washing them with anti-bacterial soap and I harvested with a knife with I "lighterflamed".
Hope that all made sense and that any of you can help.
Thanks&Cheers
to all'o'you

Just little spores, no worry. And yes, just to be safe, ALWAYS be sterile.

dont cut off the shrooms, thatll leave a stump to rot and infest with contams. simply tug slightly while turning at the base of the stem.

Yeah they just droped thier spores and the cap is semi transparent and you can see the spores through the cap and sometimes they blow up on the cap. I would add a capful of H202 to your dunk water as well. Good luck.

Does it look like this picture?



The darkbrown powder on the caps is spores. It should smear.
It's also from a Dutch growkit BTW (Azarius)

Nah, they don't look like the ones on the photo. It's single spots. The caps are still completely closed, could it be spores then? Don't they beginn to fly AFTER opening? The funniest ones look exactly like a smily face (no joke, is the shroom playing a trick one me? Would trust him to ; )
I gonna post a photo soon. Just have to take one.
Thanks to everyone so far  :smile: :wink:

So here're the pics:

The smily guy:


A typical one


The first flush:

That's how the first ones looked. Beauties arent they! I know the air was to dry and so they cracked but besides that they are great (and potent like hell). Why did the next flush turn out so weird?

thx guys (and gals)

one last thing: the spots only appear on the shrooms which are already quite dry, meaning the caps began to shrivel at least a bit. Maybe that's helpful.
thanks

Thanks for the quality pics, you dont see much of that around here. To awnser your question it looks like its bruising. Doesn't appear to be bacterial blotch. You should set up a little terrarium for that casing. Good Luck.

Give those babies some humidity and they will reward you.

to be really sure get a cotton tip and wipe the spot
if it comes off and dirties the cotton tip its mould/contamn
