Caps Splitting....
    #1122662 - 12/08/02 08:33 PM (14 years, 3 days ago)

For some reason, on many of my mushrooms, the caps are splitting apart when the cap is opening. Usually about 4 or 5 slits, and it begins right as the veil begins to split. Are my mushrooms trying to tell me something or is this something I should not worry about?

Your humidity may be too low.

That's what I was thinking too. However, I use perlite and I mist, keeping the walls with droplets of water. I live in a really dry place though so that might be it. Probably need to seal off my terrarium better.

do you get a lot of fluffy mycelium on the stems? if you do, then your humidity is definately not low.

I saw once pics, of a guy, all his caps were like that, but he was doing everything right, maybe it's the strain.... not THE strain, but genetics and stuff... but usually it's low humidity, try fanning maybe (just for the fun of it) try maybe misting more,... more perlite, maybe ure perlite isn't wet enough?
