Its time.
    #867623 - 09/06/02 05:40 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Alright, so the time has finally come and I believe my mush is ready to be harvested.

I just want to describe to you what ive got as sort of a last line of contamination determination (this being my first time and all).

The mushrooms (P. cubenses Matias Romero) are between 2in and 7in. They have fat stocks which thin as they go up. The cap is yellow with a solid brown center. Around the inner brown circle there are a few small specks of white.

Now, the only thing that is really worrying me here is the mushrooms color. They are almost all completly white except for a blue tint to them. In some places it gets dark blue but not to the point of being black.

Do these sound safe to eat?

Also, my 2nd question is there seems to be small volcanos with black-blue tips starting top form as well. Are these new mushrooms?

Hey. They sound good to me. The blue tint sounds like bruising. From that description, I would definitely eat them.

The 'volcanoes' with the black/blue tips sound to me like aborts. You should pick these, dry them, etc. They are not going to grow any more.

Free thinkers are dangerous.

squish one of the "volcano's". if it's firm, like a new mushroom, leave them. it it's not, pick/remove.

hey buddy,

they sound like you did things right. sounds like you have good treats. i would pick the aborts before the start to rot and harbor contams. aborts are great, they can give you some very twisted trips.

enjoy, and eat some aborts for me.

Bluing is a good sign. Black means dead or rotting so pick those suckers now and dont throw them away.
