Help! Something is EATING my indoor cubies!!! ????
    #1100860 - 12/01/02 01:45 PM (14 years, 10 days ago)

This morning I woke up and went to air out my terrarrium. I noticed in my dung tray some mushrooms were lying down and ready to harvest. I picked two that were almost tearing the veil (Orrissa India). I thought the reason they were lying down was because the caps had grown quickly overnight and were too heavy to be held up, but then I noticed something peculiar. Humidity is a little high in my terrarrium so all the mushrooms have fuzzy mycelial growth at the base of the stalk reaching sometimes close to halfway up the stalk. A bunch of my mushrooms look as though someone came in with a tiny gnome razor and shaved a ring around the mycelium fuzz. But the places where the fuzz has been shaved aren't that creamy white stalk colour. It looks light toasty brown and slightly mottled. I've never heard of anything like this. Has anybody else experienced this/know what it is? Is it dangerous? Can I still eat them? Should I harvest them all so this thing doesn't spread? :confused:

I just went to inspect my mushrooms a little closer. It appears that this isn't limited to my dung tray. About 6 or 7 mushrooms from the dung tray have it, one tiny one from a nearby cake has it, and one on my 50/50 casing has been afflicted. Also, it seems as though this "thing" Isn't just cutting through the fuzz at the base of the mushrooms but possibly is gnawing away at the actual stalk. I don't have a digicam so here is an ascii diagram:

The place where it narrows is where the monster seems to be eating away almost logging.

You just blew your secret! Now everyone is going to start putting padlocks on their terrariums.  :shocked:

Don't send your gnomes after my crop or they might get consumed by two hungry black cats.

Sounds like a humidity issue.
Not the first time I`ve heard of mushrooms with perfect lines in the fuzz at the base of the stem.
Try to drop your humidity and maybe mist a bit less.

I think everyone here has done too many shrooms... Wait, Is that possible? Nah, you couldn't possibly do too many.
