Casing Mold
    #4208449 - 05/23/05 12:35 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Is there any way to know if a casing is contaminated underneath besides lifting it up?

Thanks - AS.

How can I tell if it is safe to consume my shrooms without disrupting subsequent flushes though?

If you don't smell anything when you harvest (or see anything), Then you should be fine :thumbup:

btw, Why are you so worried about your casing being contaminated?

The exact reason when I grew I used clear containers.

Well, to keep out light I painted the bottom 4 inches of my aquarium. I guess I could scratch off the paint to check for contaminants and then use tin foil from now on. That seems like a waste of all the effort I put into painting it though.

If your shrooms look healthy, eat em. If there is a harmful underlying contam, they will not grow healthily.

I would definitely have to say smell is the best way, I can tell as soon as I open my fruiting chamber.

What if there is a small enough contamination area that it does not affect growth but still has deadly neurotoxins, or is this an oxymoron.
