What to do!? ...Left over cake...
    #7516659 - 10/14/07 07:07 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

About a month ago I had 7 jars ready to birth. There was an 8th jar that had a spot that looked unheathy (contam)... So I left it in my closet by itself thinking I'd eventually throw it outside when I got a decent spot picked out. Well, I forgot about it and since then it's been growing mushrooms inside the jar. What should I do with this now? I'm thinking either put it outside now and see what I can get it to grow out there. Or put it in a fruiting chamber by itself. I have a small one I bought for casings that I'm not using... so either of those ideas would be pretty easy to carry out. I just don't know what would yield more fruits. Any suggestions/thoughts?

if it was contaminated before
i wouldn't see a reason why you'd even grow it anymore

I thought about just throwing it away, but there's so many mushrooms cramed into the jar that I can't even tell where that spot was... I've read many debates on eating shrooms from slightly contaminated cakes/casings and I side with the opinion of it's okay to do (as long as the contam isn't on the mushroom itself)... Plus if I put it outside, most indoor molds can't survive outside anyway.

Put it outside and see what happens, the worst that could happen is it wont fruit... but you already forgot about it once so it's not like it's a big deal right?  and i agree with you about eating the mushrooms, as long as it's not ON the shroom you should be just fine. so go on and have fun :snowman:

Yeah, I'm feeling that's the way to go now... outside. I'm going to dig up a little area to loosen the dirt and break up the cake as well. Thanks for your words guys.

dont throw it outside if there is no sign of contamination left, myc has a habit of pushing out weak contams. if its already pinning, i would let it fruit in a small chamber made out of whatever is available, rubbermaid, 2 liter bottle cut in half..whatever. use some perlite to humidify and fan a few times a day, let it finish its first flush. then dunk and crumble and case it! cross your fingers and with some luck you might get a fat couple of flushes from that casing.

You could do a few things:
1.)Put it outside
2.)Do what futurewolf said
3.)Make an LC
4.)Extract the 4-OH-DMT from the mycelium.
5.)Eat it

Well I'm not eating it because it's mostly vermiculite...

But when I got home today I birthed it, crumbled and set it under a thin layer of dirt outside. When I crumbled it, I could see the yellow discoloration of the contam on the mycelium inside. There was no funny smell though, just the faint scent of mushrooms. The mushrooms all look fine (there are about 25 of them!) ...anyone think these are okay to eat? ...They're all small, but I was thinking of drying them and keeping them with the bits and pieces of others that I have and eventually I'll grind them and mix them into brownie icing or something.

The shrooms should be just fine. I have had several shrooms with contams on them and just washed them real good. You can wash the "film" off the shrooms and an contams that is on that. I've never had a prob with it. And I always wash them real good. When you do you should notice that "film" if you scrape the bottom of the stem lightly it will start coming off.

I wish I could get a picture. My camera got dust in it from Burning Man and hasn't worked since. I should be getting a laptop soon though... and a camera for the Xbox 360... so if I still have the little shrooms I picked from that cake I'll def. take a few pictures.

Like others said, make a mini terrarium for that cake. If you ever aren't sure about one, but want to see what will happen, isolate it and give it a go. Smaller rubbermaid containers, or something like a pitcher, with a bag tented over the top and some wet perlite in the bottom can work great on a smal scale. Sounds like the little ones might be fine, though.
