Mushrooms have dropped spores, is it a problem?

Recommended Posts

Hey :)

I've had a pretty stressful week so my second flush has been left a couple of days too long. 3-4 mushrooms in both kits have opened fully and dropped a fair few spores. No signs of mold or anything else dodgy going on. Is everything still good to eat? 

I'm sure it's probably been answered 100 times but can't seem to find anything, sorry. Total newbie here 😂

Thanks guys

Making a spore print from a mature fruit drops spores to make the print.

So, dropping its spores is a natural way to spread its "seeds".

If I am wrong someone please correct me.

I would harvest them now.

That first sentence is the most confusing thing I have ever read.

Such is life. Just bad wording I guess.

So sorry to you.

A mushroom drops its spores when you make a spore print.

You’re just asking if they are safe to eat after they’ve opened up and dropped spores?

yes they are, ENJOY . 

The reason we don’t like them opening up inside the FC or bag is it’s messy as well as wherever they land on your sub will have real difficulty pinning up and fruiting again. 

Cool?

When harvesting, Can I cut the base off with a scissor or razor? when I pull it out, I sometimes pull pins and  substrate out too.  The growth is not even. I have large veils opening next to pins

Gently pull and twist . A little sub is going to come up with it . But if you leave those stumps in there they will get contaminated

you could always use a toothbrush to brush the sub off the stem, peel it, or cut with a blade, save the ugly bottoms, grind up and put in capsules. The limits are endless

Which is why in nature it starts off as a patch then that's a patch dies a ring forms around the outside of the patch. This can continue for some time. I have seen fairy rings 4 and 5 deep. Looks like nature's bullseye. LOL

Depending on the species some mushrooms that form fairy rings do it on a trees root system that has been long dead and gone . Those roots branches out in a circle and those mushrooms go up from the edges. I read this a long time ago in HS. That info may be out dated by now Lol

      After mixing together a bunch of wbs jars with substrate,I underestimated how much it would make, I've been trying to do away with the big monotubs because it's hard to hide so I've been doing bags ,well I ran out of spawn bags so i put the remainder of my spawn in 4 one gallon ziplock bags that i cut a hole in and taped tyvlek to. The problem is the substrate is 4 inches thick in these one gallon bags . I let them colonize for 12 days, during the spawn run the mycelium went nuts , it even grew through the tyvlek patch , its strong and healthy looking growing up the sides of the bags , and it's already pinning. The thing is  I cant  possibly see how it could work with the bags being so full of substrate , I was just kind of rushed and didnt want to waste anything so I threw it in bags not really expecting it to work . The bags are so healthy looking I hate to throw them out , but I'm not sure what to do . Any suggestions? Two of my bags are just verm and the other two are cmc, coir ,and verm... any help would be greatly appreciated ... thank you

      I just ordered the 23 quart presto pressure cooker. Does anyone use this type for sterilizing jars or bags? I’m thrilled that I can start doing my own substrates now but I’ve never used a PC before is it pretty easy?

      Pulled a gallon bag of substrate out of the freezer.   I'm going to spawn some of the Jalisco jars this next week.   See what happens.

      So today was a busy day! Transfered ropey strands from the fully colonized GT and KSSS bags to Petri dishes, really hope that some beautiful ropey myc comes of it.  Dycorotic and rizomorphic growth is beautiful.Just a quick peek of a Thai strand going into the dish before we finished up there and went on to start setting up the tubs to spawn to substrate 1 to 3 ratio. This is the Golden Teacher just placed and not spread out yet, ready to be foil wrapped and moved into incubation for 10 days.Volcano at around 10 days and will be getting the casing put over as well today along with two others to be shown later on this day. A wonderful picture of the inside of the greenhouse with what we have started and growing bigger everyday lol. And the final picture showing the humidifier and fan in working order. Would always be welcome to any ideas or different ways to look at things in getting them to grow better! Thank you
