I am still not sure at how to get a good spore print. Am I interpretting correctly that just as the veil starts to break away pick the mushroom and cut away the cap and then place it on something to "catch" the spores as they drop away?

To print mushroom caps you gotta wait till the cap has flattened out; shouldn't take more than a day later when the viel breaks.

Right....... wait till the cap flatens out......  then cut it off with a clean scalpel or knife ...wipe it with alcohol first. Then place the cap on either wax paper, tinfoil, or an index card.. printer paper works good too. With the shrooms cap spore vents facing down, cover with a small glass and in about 8 hours you will have a nice dark print. Then simply remove the glass and fold the print and store in ziplock bag for future use........... :smile:

Sometimes you don't have to wait until it fully flattens out. Watch for spore deposits accumulating on the veil.

The best thing to use is a petri dish for spore prints. You can tape them in the dish and let them sit for a day or two, and since the dish is transparent , you can see your spore print once its done. Its mobile and easy enough so that chances of foreign particles is very little to none. Buy those dishes, very cheap.
