Are caps suppose to be white?
    #11199847 - 10/07/09 01:08 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

I've just created my first batch and they just popped out yesterday morning after the full moon. one of them in now about an inch or so tall and i'm worried about the caps. all the pictures i've seen has had brownish caps but mine are white. Is this normal?

sometimes pins will pop up white.. sometimes first flushes have myc all over em too.. my guess is they will darken up as they mature unless they are leucistic.. in that case ... post some pics!

alot of times they arent true albinos and may abort. can also happen from poor substrate preperation and other less than optimal circumstances

In the future, try to stray away from pre-made kits.

Some strains have a lighter cap than others, I'm growing Albino Mexican Cubensis, they are NOT true albino, but they have a much lighter/paler cap than most cubensis.  Here's a photo.

That photo also looks like a white inky cap pin.  I might be wrong...

I know a guy who bought the same kit as mine and his turned out fine, i'll have to ask him if his were white in the begining. I've been harvesting this kit for a month now tho.
