Caps Tearing
    #1234438 - 01/20/03 04:37 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

On my current grow using EQs, I've had cake that the caps opened all at once, and when they do, the caps tear almost halfway to the center on ALL of the caps. Is there an explaination for this?

How is your humidity?
I had this happen to me with low humidity.

I've also had this happen to me with high humidity. The mushrooms should be fine though.

But torn caps make for ugly spore prints. My humidity is high enough to see condensation on the walls of the fruiting chamber near the perlite.
