Exotic smell
    #4377726 - 07/06/05 11:38 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I noticed the strangest thing...

I have a fair number of casings with Z strain.  All of them, except one are rye spawned to poo.
The other (strange) casing is PF jars (with BRF & Quinoa flour) spawned to poo.
This casing is about 99.9% colonized, I'm gonna case it tomorrow.
The strange thing about it is that it smells like candy!! :crazy2:
It smells mushroomy but with that hint of caramel or something, it's really weird. All of my other casings smell mushroomy, nothing strange. There's no contams or anything, the spawn run took only 3 days!

If I am correct I think it was diver or someone else who had a pleasantly smelling casing too.

I'm telling you..this is a smell to remember...:drooling:

i think it might be linked to the Z strain plutonium..... i too have smelled the candy smell from the Z, but not from the TC or the malabar..... wierd. any experienced guys have a comment on this phenom?

I recently harvested Z strain for the first time, and the smell was definitely unlike anything I've ever experienced working with cubes. An almost cinnamon/fruity/earthy smell from fresh fruits, and very pungent at that. A most unusual occurence, it's interesting to see someone else report this.

A strange phenomenon indeed, I wonder what causes this smell.
So only Z strain eh?

Nope, they still taste like butt.

I just spawned a fully colonized 1/2 pint of cambo on WBS seed to poo, and when I dumped it out of the jar it smelled like orange rind with cinnamon sprinkled on it..

When I birthed my first brf/verm cakes they smelled almost like berries! It was a very very sweet, sugary, mushroomy smell. :smile: almost like candy.

I find that in my experience mushrooms get a specific sweet pleasant smell when fruiting, not to be confused with the sickly sweet/sour smell of cobweb! My Koh Samui Super Strain casings usually fill up the terrarium with a toffe/candy aroma before they fruit. I've had it happen with EQ's and a few others as well, never tried z-strain.
