Eating Contaminated Shrooms?
    #520649 - 01/14/02 06:14 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

This is a question for all somewhat experienced eaters/growers...
Is there a change that I could have eaten/grown some contaminated mushrooms, or is it true that any mushrooms grown on my cakes are ok to eat? I ask this because the first batch I ate gave me a very strange, powerful, and at times scary trip. Is it possible that this is due to some type of contamination, or would any contamination completely ruin my cakes and prevent any mushrooms from growing? I'm asking cause I'm giving some of these to friends and I wouldn't want to give them contaminated mushrooms. Any help is apprecaited.

Contaminated shrooms might make you sick, and they might kill you. You had an intense trip, that's all.

puscle,
thanks for the response man. But my real question is, how will I know (before I eat them and get violently ill or die) that my mushrooms are contaminated? Are there any telltale signs that a p.cubensis mushroom is contaminated, or do I just have to watch the cakes for strange growth?
thanks again puscle.

i dought your shrooms can get contaminated if your cake is not contaminated, if your cakes/casing is fine the shrooms are fine

Can mushrooms grow on contaminated cakes? I ask this because my cake turned a little bit blue during the first flush and now I have a second flush! Thank you!

yes they can grow on contaminated cakes....but stop being so paranoid. If you dont see any mold or smell any funky bacteria you should be fine.
The reason your cake is blue is because you bruised it.

Yes, shrooms can grow on contaminated cakes. The fruitbodies themselves can become targets of some types of fungi and bacteria. You can also induce bacteria growth inside the fruitbody from slow or incomplete drying. Use your eyes and nose. If it looks bad or smells wrong, then don't eat it. If the center of the fresh fruitbody is black and/or slimey, don't eat it. Typically, a bit of fuzz around the base of the fruitbody, or a bit of blue/black bruising on the fruit body is normal. The caps often have a slimey feel to them as well. If there is fuzz on the fruitbody, make sure it is shroom-fuzz and not cobweb mold, mildew, etc.

Shroom trips can be unpredictable at times. If you are not relaxed and in control of your life, the experience will often take an unpleasant turn. The homegrown shrooms, in my friends experience, are much much much more potent than what you get from the local bodega or cow pasture.

The more flushes you harvest, the worse the mycelium you are harvesting from will look. My friend has taken fruit from some pretty nasty looking mycelium (lots of bruising and overlay) after two or three flushes and had no problems at all. Just keep an eye out for contaminates and toss your tray in the trash when they finally move in.
