AHHH! Contaminated cap while printing!
    #840585 - 08/24/02 02:54 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Hey everyone,

I was printing the biggest "portobello" cap i had, after leaving the cap in a container for 2 days i took it out. The cap had turned into jellow, all floppy and wet. It also spelled worse that Blue's Poo .

Anyways why did this happen? I had the cap+index card in a closed container instead of under a glass. Could the closed space have caused the contam to thrive?

Fd

It rotted. That's normal when you leave mushrooms in enclosed spaces after they're harvested. I'm sure that the temperatures hastened the process.

Mushrooms can be hard to print in warm weather.

Try to print in the coolest part of your home....like a basement.
Keep the lid slightly ajar so they have some air exchange.

I had some mushrooms go bad a few weeks ago....due to... too warm of weather.
Sounds like yours just got too hot and withered.....and turned into a watery sludge.

You could also use a large Ziplock container with a hole cut out of the top.
Then glue part of a filter disc onto the lid.
These work great for making spore prints.

you don't want the cap to be sealed for long periods of time. there is bound to be a small amount ob bacteria present at any given time but most are rather weak and can not thrive on living biomatter. once you stop air flow the cap starts to degrade faster and provides a nice easy meal for the contams.

Well i live in an apartment so no basement is available. Perhaps printing in the fridge would be better? Or would that cool the cap too much, and it might not drop spores...?

This sucks because this cap was at least 1" bigger than all my others,

My advice would be to print in a cool location (room temperature should be ok) overnight. Two days was excessive.

Check your humidity where you live. When i lived in jersey (high humidity) I took prints under a glass half off a shelf( Nice Dark prints in 24Hrs.). Since i moved to the dessert; I have to keep them totally sealed in a tupperware container or the caps will dry out faster than the spores can drop.

Yes, 2 days is too long. 12 hrs is quite long enough to make a print IME.
Also, you have to take into account that your portobello has probaly been picked 3 or 4 days before you even set eyes on it.....

Put the cup and print on top of a towel. That should do it.
