This will be my first attempt growing mushrooms. I'm going to try to keep a reasonable log posted on steps I have taken.
I started out by getting some mushrooms from the grocery store. I tried to get a spore print, but the mushrooms were old looking and the gills were wet so I didn't get anything. I opted to swap them and attempt to get a culture that way. OMG BAD IDEA. I had 3 petri dishes of molds, yeast and random bacterias, though all showed signs of mycelium growth. I deemed 2 of the dishes unworthy to attempt salvage. The third dish was marginally healthier (I use the term loosely). I cut two sections from that dish and transferred them. One of those samples did nothing in its new dish. It just sat there. The other however grew a fair bit.
There are two spots of contamination I need to transfer away from.
