possible contamination
    #622567 - 04/29/02 09:50 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I have successfully grown some shrooms, and they look different from other shrooms I've grown, the stems are more yellow than others and wrinkled, the caps are a darker yellow-gray, thin, and slimy on top. Is this some kind of contamination or are these shrooms safe to eat?

It is hard to say without pictures (and usually with pictures as well). Does the cap feel slimey (like a dog nose) or is it actually slimey (globs of goo)? You might have bacterial bloom...

Just another spore in the wind.

I just harvested a crop from my terrarium, i am using the 50/50 casings method. There were two trays inside, one became contaminated the other didnt, is it still safe to eat the ones that were in the non-contaminated tray or would they have been affected by the the conaminated tray next to it?
