Broken cap
    #1436464 - 04/07/03 04:28 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I?m trying the casing, but all the caps are breaking up, I read that happens in contact with the dry air, but then the mushrooms turned to black-blue. Are they contaminated?

That could be Verticillium contamination. Any odd spots on the cap ?
If you have checked the contamination FAQ you might want to read this web page.

I read the information (thanks MAIA), but I didn?t see any spots, just they start to ?open? the cap, and then they split. I didn't see any other sign, but it's not conclusive.

I send the pic of the new mushrooms, they start to break too.

Probably dry air in there, you need some more humidity.
