Hello All,

 

I've been lurking here for about a month now. I finally decided to try my hand at a grow. Just wondering if these look okay or if I need to throw them out due to contamination? The black on the top of mushrooms smears when I wipe it with a paper towel. Let me know if I can provide any additional details or take additional photos. Thanks in advance.

howdy and welcome

the black on the caps are the spores that have dropped from the mushroom above it.  The only thing id do differently next time is to pick them earlier.

What about the tallest mushroom that is black and no other mushrooms above that one? :deadhorse:  :tongue:

I felt like these mushrooms only grew to their current height in the past day or so. Should I begin picking and drying them now?

Damn okay. Thanks guys. I'll pick them. I'm glad to hear that they are not contaminated. Then I can dunk them again and hopefully get another batch out of the cake.
