Dangerous to eat shrooms?
    #583416 - 03/19/02 03:58 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

hello, i was wondering if there are some shrooms that you can grow that can kill you, if consumed. I know that if you go pick shrooms out in the wild, then you can pick one that will kill u without a liver transplant. are there any that can grow like that if you grow them yourself?? or is there any extremely harmful contaminations that your mushrooms can pick up? ok thanks for your help
keep the peace

If you want to grow cubensis and the result is other mushroom (wich to my knowlodge has never happened) then you switched spores, well, i mean it's very unlikelly to happen, you don't have to be an expert to distinguish cubensis mycellium from other mycellium, also the fruitbody is easeally identified. Anyway, if you go to the wilderness that is called "Hunting", at home is "Growing", can you see the diference ?

Peace,

The reason home growers buy spores from trusted vendors is to help ensure that they are getting a nonharmful product. If you buy spores from a trusted vendor, the chances of you growing a poisonous mushroom by accident are probably less than the chances of you getting hit by lightning... twice.

It is pretty easy to grow contaminates while trying to grow shrooms. The majority of these contaminates are not harmful to humans, but some are. Contamination is pretty easy to detect... it looks nasty and sometimes smells wrong as well. Since it is hard to know if a contamination is good or bad, everything that is not 100% clean mycelium is tossed.

Assuming that you are growing P.Cubensis, then yes. There are three exceptions to this rule. Bruising and dryness cause blue areas to form. Excess water causes the mycelium to yellow. When the spores drop, they turn anything under them a dark purple/black color.

I would say the number one most important item to have is a pressure canner. After that I would work on a good terrarium and incubator setup. A HEPA filter is worth the money, but not as important as the others in my opinion.
