Mycellium on mushrooms
    #4649871 - 09/12/05 01:17 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

When I harvest my mushrooms off the cake, they always seem to have some mycellium growing on the bottom 1/3rd or so of the mushroom. Theres also some verm usually on there too, but that is cleaned off easily usually.

My question is this: Does this mycellium really need to be cleaned off? It always seems to turn blue when I do. Will it make my mushrooms less potent by weight if I leave it on there? I really don't care if it tastes good or bad, as I'll probably just dry them and powder them up anyway. Cleaning the myc off the fully grown ones isn't too bad really if thats needed, its mainly just the aborts that grow a ton of myc around their base.

On a side note, this shall be my last grow with cakes :P. It was fun, but kinda seems like a waste (other than the experience) after trying out this grain method Im using now heh.

no reason what so ever to clean the myc off the stems.
are you spawning the grains to something?
:peace:

Well I have about 4 quart jars with rye that I inocd, one with 10ml of LC, and the others with 30ml of LC. Man do they colonize fast as hell when you do that :P. I left them a bit dry in the prep due to planning on doing this.

Im thinking about casing two of them, leaving one for experiment (haven't read on spawning, so maybe Ill try that), and then perhaps keeping the last one to use for G2G.

If anything, leaving the myc on adds more potency per shroom. I guess you didnt know that there are those out there that only grow myc, and not shrooms. Enough myc alone can make you trip.
