I just harvested my first batch today. Most of my substrate was badly bruised. I'm assuming that the dark blue is from bruising and not contamination but feel free to correct me. There is also a dark spot that might be contamination.

 

I'm now soaking the substrate and also attempting to harvest the spores from two of the caps.

good job  :thumbs_up:

making spore prints on foil is better than over water, that cap will drop more spores than you will need and you can save the rest

I just looked it up! Sounds like prints are the standard way to harvest and share spores. Thanks wharfrat!

This is looking pretty decent. What shroom is that? Looks like Wollongong to me...

Hi LavaBLob! Its great to have you here.

 

The more you research around this place, the more updated information you will find. Although the core of PF's tek is still practiced, a lot of info from his research turned out to be false.

 

Such as not using heat to dry your mushrooms and the crystals precipitating in alcohol extracts being active.

 

Are you making your own jars or did you purchase them?
