what should i do with....
    #849277 - 08/28/02 02:27 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

i bought a psilocybe cubensis (dont know which particular strain) grow kit.
i know i got 'ripped off' but i wanted to try a grow kit before i try 'manual' growing.
my mushrooms are now fruiting in the fish tank. first off they looked like popcorn appearing in the mycelium and now they have grown into mini mushrooms albeit with a small cap.
i had a look at the plastic tray before which the substrate is in and theres loads of mushrooms in the side of the tray being squashed by the plastic. this seems a waste as theyre only going to abort. i imagine. what should i do with these little'uns?
i dont spose i can remove them without affecting the others. if you need a picture of them i can take one. many thanks, mike.

thats is why you use an opaqe container. I think I would try to remove and patch so they dont rot and open doors for contams

damn. i was hoping it wasnt gonna need that. how would you suggest i do it.
i dont want to pull the plastic case off and have the substrate fall apart and all the mushrooms on top die. i could carefully just cut away the sides of the plastic i suppose.

also; i've seen a lot of contradictory stuff about how many grams i should eat. can anyone tell me, both wet and dry weight what i should eat for like a level 3 trip? i've only had lib. caps before.

I would get a spoon and dig those dudes out of there. I think you might have a bigger prob with contams from them rotting then your loss of the ones on top. This is your first flush, so there is enough time to clear the aborts, put some tape on the container and hope for the best. Dont forget to patch with sterile case after removal.

Start with 3- 5 grams dry

i will dig em out tomorrow and maybe put em in a new container. see how they do. thing is, theyre right below a fat 'lump' of mushroom. argh.
what do you mean by put some tape on the container? do you mean cut the side off and dig em out that way?

sorry for the billions of questions, but thanks for the answers!!

leave them in the container do not dig them out with a spoon. Don't bother to cover the sides of the container it's too late for that. Pick what you can reach but try and not disturbe the substrate too much. If you bought the kit from sjamaan.com it is like the ones that I have used in the past PM me if you like.

I bet you got that from Kingbong, right? I don't know how they get away with selling these kits in the UK, I can only see it leading to badness.....
Anyway, yeah, don't touch the squashed shrooms, you'll just end up making a mess of the casing.
They probably won't grow much bigger than that anyway. You can always pick them once the rest of the casing stops producing.

edit: I just checked and I see the Kingbong site has disappeared. Wonder if they kept any records........

yeah dont go diggin in there unless there's gold. i still would cover the sides so the mycelium doesnt recieve light so that no more pins form down there.

hi all.
thanks for the info. i was thinking of just removing that portion of plastic. see if the mushrooms grow out sideways? or is it too risky? i dont want the substrate falling out.

yup! i got it from kingbong.
[naive]
if they keep records right, what can the police do? theyre legal til we dry them. even then we could say "oh no, i left them by accident on the windowledge." doubt it would work but you can get away with accidentally drying them.
[/naive]

after work tonight i will see what the situation is. some of them have grown to nearly poke out the top. i might just get long thin mushrooms!

but thanks for the info people.

sorry for dredging this back up but i thought i'd let you know what happened.

i sterilized some scissors and cut away most of the side of the tray to free the mushrooms. now they are growing out and looking great. plus i get more mushrooms.
bad thing is my fish tank is too small now
