Help :(
    #11173873 - 10/03/09 09:58 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys, I've just done my first grow and have picked a few shrooms but afew days after drying (in a plastic air-tight box with silica gel beads in the bottom but the shrooms have started to grow white fluff on them as seen in the photos below (if clear enough for you to see).



Any help on this matter will help..

Note: As the shrooms grow I pick them at different times and put them in the drying tub, whould that be a reason this white fluff is growin on the stems and caps?

I'm not quite sure. it could be mold mycelium, maybe not. but next time, be sure to air/fan dry your mushrooms before trying to dehydrate them w/ silica beads

Even when you pick mushrooms, the mycelium is still living. The white fuzz, if the mushrooms aren't rotting, is more than likely mycelium growing off the fruits. I've had it happen with fresh mushrooms stored in a paper bag - the fruits were wet and the mycelium started colonizing the paper within two days flat.

If want to test this out for kicks, you can cut off fresh stem butts and sandwich them between pieces of damp, corrugated cardboard so the butts are touching the corrugations. Most molds won't colonize cardboard and you'll have cardboard spawn you can use for outdoor beds in a few weeks or months. :thumbup:

Never store fresh mushrooms in an air tight container. They'll rot in a hurry.
