Re: Those little white flakes on developing "buttons"

Does it sort of look like scab material peeling off from top to bottom? If so, then don't worry about it, should clear up. If not, then still don't worry about it.

Unless the mushrooms suddenly stop growing, there's nothing wrong with them.

It sounds like fragments of the universal veil clinging to the cap. Perfectly normal. The same thing is happening with the warts on the cap of an Amanita.

The amount of "warts" depends on the strain of cubensis. Golden teacher strain tends to retain them into maturity but with most strains they tend to dissapear as the mushroom gets larger.
