Question: first time contamination...help please
    #688224 - 06/19/02 01:53 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

As I’m sure anyone who reads this will be able to tell I’m new to growing. I have never had a contamination problem before and would like advice please. Here is the situation. I have what appears to be a black mold or some kind of black substance on the inside walls of my grow tank (10 gal fish tank). The black stuff is right under several mushrooms that have their caps fully opened and it is also on the upper part of the mushroom. The tank has several other cakes that are not yet effected are they any good? I have already gotten rid of the effected mushrooms. Any advice from an experienced grower would be really appreciated!

Thanks

This is just spores dropping from the open caps. They are harmless.
When a mushrom opens its cap, it sporulates. The spores are what you receive in your syringe/print from a vendor.
Take a look in the pic forum.

Don't throw them!!!

Send them to me for testing

Good luck

Yeah dude, your ok its just spores from the mushrooms. Sounds like it anyways. I suppose you could have that black bathroom mildew grow insider your fruiting chamber.

Definitely spores.
Harvest the shrooms before this happens, unless you want to make a print, then harvest them as soon they begin to sporulate.
