contaminated shrooms/spores
    #544894 - 02/08/02 03:29 PM (16 years, 4 months ago)

if the original spores were exposed at some point. would the final mushrooms have traces of contamination? would spore print exposure result in probable contamination in all resulting product? what characteristics to contaminated mushrooms portray?

when we talk about contamination, we are usually talking about contamination of the substrate... the bacteria or mold is only competing for nutrients.

If we say you had a contaminated syringe, it usually means that there were traces of bacteria or mold spores along side the shroom spores, waiting to consume the substrate and overpower the mycelium.

Shrooms are only dangerous to eat off contaminated cakes because the myclelial network can take up toxins produced by the contaminant, or carry some of the actual bacteria. The shroom itself isnt usually infected, it is only cohabitating the substrate.

I keep saying usually because there are rare instances where viruses can infect a mushroom, but these instances are too rare for you to really worry about.

clear things up some?

i know about this:

what i really mean, is that i had some mushrooms i grew, and they were weird. they had a very spongy inner texture, mush spongier that normal. i'm talking fine dust upon touching thin. and it tasted severely like dust, and i know my tastes(i'm a chef, and yes i am looking for edible mushroom SPORES). it was very weird mushroom. not to mention extreme mutations.
i am wondering, are these symptoms a result of "contaminated" spores?
also: is the quality of the shrooms reduced if spores are not 100% clean and uncontaminated and stuff.

The fluffy white stuff at the stems is cubensis mushroom mycelium, so no worries :wink: didnt see any other contam either so I think you're fine - in some instances the stems get even fuzzier, when there is not enough air, if you aver have time just search for that and you will see pictures which look a lot freakier than what you have there, that looks good in terms of fresh air :wink:
white mold is usually different looking and tends so be more off white or gray than white and looks less orderly and more fuzzy or the opposite like on complete sticky mass, so no worries keeping them apart, look for some white mold pictures when you have time and youll see what I mean-
also, but here I definitely need help from someone more experienced, the shape of the mushrooms is kind of odd isnt it? black caps and the way they dont stand straight? Might be aborts or maybe just the srain -  If they stopped growing (wait before youre sure they stopped growing) maybe pick and dry them before they start to rot
