I purchased a spore syringe a month or so ago, and was infuriated to find the viability rate far below acceptable. Being the curious one, I allowed my contaminated jars to grow, just to see what would grow. To my suprise, I found a single cake pinning, I have isolated it, and allowed it to grow a bit. My question is whether or not making a spore print from a contaminated mushroom is safe or not. I was nearly going to consume a few of them, but have since changed my mind. However, my replacement syringe has been placed on a backorder of sorts, and I am growing extremely impatient. Cloning a contaminated mushroom is dangerous, but are the spores of these mushrooms a threat as well?

Virtually every time I have used spores from a contaminated casing, I have had major contamination problems. I have even done tests where I did 1/2 my jars with fresh spores and 1/2 with the spores from contaminated shrooms. All the fresh spore jars turned out fine while the rest contaminated.
-------------------- You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
