White lines on my prints... (pics)
    #3856069 - 03/02/05 09:11 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hello my friends. After hours of searching many pastures (dry weather, couldn't even find the other types of shrooms), I was lucky enough to find two beautiful caps (my sister was using the camera this day, thus no pictures of them beauties). Perfect since my intention was not imediate consumption but a sample to start my own cuture. Now I am proud to present you my first attempt on making spore prints.

The larger cap was around 2 1/4 inches in diameter, the smaller one was around 1 inch.




With the prints done, I decided to take some pictures under a microscope (5x max). Look how thick the print from the big cap got



Here is a close up of the print from the smaller cap. I can notice a few different colors in this print as well, is this indicative of some specific strain?




To my surprise I found some strange white lines in the first print. Here they are:









Anyone know what are these?


Thank you for any comments.

Junka

Looks like cobweb mold. Have the prints been wet for a longer time?

Nope, the prints were made in a BOD at 25 C with no more then 30% hum. The pictures were taken 48 hours after the shrooms were put to print (they stayed printing for 16 hours).

From what I saw under the microscope, they didn't look like mold, but again, I am no specialist at all...

looks kind of like bug tracks. Any mites or nat larva in or on the shrooms?

I have never made a print on paper before, but it looks to me like the print might have just dried a little, or rather the spores did, and then the patches sorta pulled apart; like how casings pull away from the container when they dry out a bit. Maybe....

That is the same thing I was thinking when I saw it. I thought it just looked like the deposit cracked from drying or handling.



But then again it does look like mold mycelium. Thick, appearing on the surface of the print... Need a more powerful scope...

I say it's the gills scraping the surface when you removed the cap.. you may have pulled it directly up, but the motion of the cap when you touched it would be enough to make lines in the spores.

Should have listened to Anno from the beginning.
It's cobweb mold, I am sure because I checked the cap later and saw a little mold contam right in the same spot as the lines appeared on the print.

I still used the rest of the print (where I checked and did not find any lines) because I don't have other sources of spores handy.

The other print didn't show any of these lines, the cap looked healthy after printing (and it gave me a nice mellow high). So I am betting on the agar plates from this one...

Also, if there is anyone here that would be kind enough to provide me a safe sterilized print so that I can start my culture decently, I'd be very thank full.
