Why are the top of the caps spliting
    #1434685 - 04/07/03 12:09 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

My friend has some shrooms going and we have been waiting, there in the final stages but they seem frozen as far as growing goes and some of the tops of caps are cracking , there not fully grown there still pretty small.
The biggest ones are about half the size of a thumb and the Vails havent torn ,
any one know why there cracking on the caps , how can we fix this?
is it bad? does it matter? we want to eat them we need help.

Cracked caps are a result of your mushrooms being too dry. Check your rh... That would be my dogs thought. You may also try dunking if you are using cakes...

Caps split/crack from shock, rh to low, light to close, exposure to sunlight & a number of other things............... most often rh related.

It could have been shock, the casing did slightly bruise when it was moved, due to low RH ;]. So maybe a combo of both factors, live and learn. Should they be picked now or will they still grow? Some of them look heathly so I am hopeful that the problem was corrected.

Thx
