I'm on my 3rd/4th flush with my treasure coast off some BRF cakes, all went well (some smallish flushes, but hey, what are ya gonna do?)! Anyway I've noticed on my most recent flush that some of the stems on the shrooms (2 days of growth, about an inch in length) have seemed to collapse, as if they are hollow and the air has been sucked out. A bit like a deflated balloon! They still hold there weight but look weak. Is this due to some contam or poor conditions??!?

Any of those are possible but in your situation i believe it's due to multiple flushes, it makes the cake weaker as the nutrients are being used to create more mushrooms, so most of the late flushes can become degenerated.
