is it still safe?
    #1419561 - 03/31/03 11:23 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

i have 8 half pint cakes fruiting in two separate tupperware type containers, using perlite humidification. in both terrariums, ive noticed some fluffy growth that doesnt quite look like the cobweb mold in the faq, but doesnt quite look like mycelium either (im not quite sure - im gonna try to get my hands on a digital camera to post a picture). one of the containers has almost no mushrooms growth, and the other is just blooming, with very normal looking mushrooms, except that they have white fluffiness on their base. im not sure if it is cobweb mold, but ive read that if cobweb mold is present and the mushrooms still look good (ie the caps dont turn black), then they are ok to eat. am i safe here? thanks alot.

The white fluffy stuff at the mushroom base is most probably mycelium. You've got to worry if it spreads evenly on the surface. Normally, cobweb spreads fast and with more randomness.
I would say it's safe but a pic will be definite.
