A. bisporus culture contaminant
    #475650 - 12/01/01 04:05 AM (15 years, 13 days ago)

I cloned a button mushroom from the supermarket 3 months ago. It needed time to begin growing on agar, so it took 2 months for the dish to colonize. Then I saw that a different mycelium began to grow from the edge of the dish, and now after app. a month here is the result.
The mycelium looks loke cubensis, but the shrooms don?t quite.
What is it?

hmmmm interesting, maybe you accidentally created a whole new mutant mushroom race!
maybe these are psychoactive button mushrooms...lol
btw I thought micelia of two different species couldn't live together, at least mot mixing. right? I thought that the strongest mycelium would be the only one surviving.

I'm not seeing anything abnormal there... cept the agar appears to have dried up a bit, probably from sitting for 2 months.. turning the mycel into shredded cotton. I've seen that happen

I dont do much agar work though, so i'm sure the next response will be more informative

Maybe you didn't clean the petridish good enough from earlier cubensis cultures. Or a lonely cubensis spore accidentally fell into the agar.

this is what you wrote anno:

But yea, you are right... they both look like bensis, the mycelium and the friuties. if you used agaricus on that plate then that is truly a strange phenomena, grow it out and find out what it really is, now ya got me curious.

Hi anno.
This looks very interesting. To me the mushrooms look like a Psilocybe for sure. Actually looks like a grass loving psilocybe in its early stages. But pinning resembles the heavy pinning of cubensis on agar. Dont know what do make of it.
Try to grow it out on grain, and see whats up. Looks a bit like mexicana... Have you had mexicana in that plate?

anno...that on the left seems to be an agaricus mycelium...the other with the pins looks like cubies...
i think you have 2 strains on that petri...the mycelium right is
far too rhizomorh...the other is more tomentose what resembles more to agaricus species....if you need agaricus prints, i have a few...

BiO.

I isolated the rhyzomorph mycelium and fruited it on birdseed.
Here?s the result, second flush:

Holy shit! Is this shroom very big, or is my monitor too small? lol Looks like you have been growing too many Psilos in there Anno, and they started learning how to grow alone, LOL

Any idea where the contamination came from? (I never thought I would call cubensis a contaminate.) Was it on the original button you cloned, or did it get introduced later?

Well, it?s definitely a P. cubensis.

Seuss: I don?t really know. Perhaps some spores fell on the agar during the inoculation.
I had a flow hood to that time already, but who knows....
