Contam while drying or Mycelium on Shrooms
    #8814924 - 08/23/08 11:39 AM (9 years, 6 months ago)

Hi all - grew some Ecuador Cubes PF tek with pleasant results.  Let one flush of one cake go to spore and took my print and them harvested the shrooms. 

I dried them the same way I always do - sealed cupcake box (never used) with damprid under the grate. (I know - no fan and no dehydrator but have never used those accouterments and have had excellent success everytime).  All other flushes dried well but the flush I allowed to go to spore. 

There was white fuzz (mycelium) growing up the stalks when I harvested the mushrooms.  Now, when I took them out of the desiccating "chamber" I got this: white fuzz on the caps in patches, no odd smells or other strangeness (just that lovely, loamy mushroomy smell.

Hey guys, 68 views and no comments?  Help a fellow psychonaut out!  I haven't committed a faux pas have I?  I am really not sure what this stuff is on the shrooms although I am leaning towards mycelium.

Not that I really qualify as an expert opinion, but that looks like myc to me. Could always give it a shot of H202 in solution to rule out whether or not its cobweb (although it doesn't look that way to me)

It's probably mushroom mycelium.  Next time, fan dry for a couple of days before putting the fruits in your desiccant container. It looks like your desiccant got saturated and your fruits didn't dry all the way out.

Thanks for the replies guys.  Next time, if the crop is large enough I will use the fan/desiccant method to dry.  I have never had this problem before but I usually do very small amount at a time, (growing and drying).

I wish the desiccant had saturated - then I would feel easier about the growth but it hadn't - not even a little.  As damprid saturates it starts to turn to goo.  There was not even a trace of goo in the container. 

Still, Im with you guys - I think its myc.

Any other thoughts?
