Pesticides in Mushrooms
    #7179306 - 07/15/07 03:50 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Is there anyone who knows for sure a way to find out if there are poisons or pesticides in mushrooms that I picked from a residential lawn?

If I'm not mistaken mushrooms do not absorb what they grow on. The only exception is they can absorb metals. Maybe unless there were pesticides or poisons directly sprayed on them.

That would make me very happy. :smile: Is there any documentation you can refer me to? Even so, would it be worse than the apples etc. that I eat regularly?

Sounds cool but for what reason would you add a vitamin to your water?

i herd that mushrooms like vitamin c, and well i have 18 jars already almost completely ready to be birthed. So i figured id use the last 6 jars to experiment, i also added a little honey to the water, than mixed it in with verm and then brf. I was just about to inoculate the jars.. but if the metals will fuck anything up, i wont bother.

I've heard it both ways. I doubt anyone around here has a GC to test for residues. You might find your answer on Tom Volks website, or try the penn state site.

RR, I wasn't able to find anything that spoke about the mycelium absorbing the poisons and it being present in the fruits. Maybe you know better where to find it? What would you do in my case?

One trip is not worth putting something carcinogenic in my body. I'm sure I'm exposed to such things enough as it is.

It's just a big disappointment. I've been keeping my eyes open for actives, and now I found more than I need and I can't use them. :frown:
