Quick spore print question...

I put three caps down yesterday evening for prints. I just checked them and only one cap provided a print. Does it sometimes take more than 16 hours or so (about the length of time they've been down)? There isn't even a faint print that I can see. I'm printing on black paper.

Yes - I have a been covering them with a glass bowl but I did notice some "whispiness" but not so much it should have prevented the others. Glass - I'd be willing to bet I can get my hands on some glass or even plexiglass pretty easily. Immature - that's my guess. The one cap I know was young but the gills were exposed completely. That other I would have guessed was mature enough to drop the spore but then again this rookie could be wrong. Thanks for the suggestions.

I like glass also, or black and white paper butted up against each other, and the cap printing on both colors,mike
