upside down caps and no stems!!!?!!
    #1448840 - 04/11/03 06:23 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I recently bought 2 cubanis grow kits, pin heads appeared nearly a week ago and now some have reached 3-4 cm high and caps (1cm across) are open I can see the gills. There are 4 larger caps (2-2.5 cm across) but they are upside down anddon;t appear to have any stem!!!

The other kit has one pin head, one shroom which appears to be trying to bury its head into the tray and a strange white lump about 4cm high and the same across (not sure if covered in mycellium or what).

They are both in the plastic bags they came with on top of a reptile heat mat (25 degrees C). There appears to be quite good humidity as there are water droplets all over the inside of th bag.

Can anyone help me I can't find any reports of these large white mounds appearing! :confused:

Is it too humid or not enough?

Any suggestions much appreciated. :

All the big caps are right on the vermilite, either they have bent over/doubled up or you can't seea stem at all.

I;m a newbie and want my (perhaps foolish) investment of ?50 to produce some results, at least so I can collect some spores.

My kits were ontop of my walldrobe the room gets well lit but no direct sunlight, could the strange growth be a result of them being slightly higher than the window. In case it is I have moved them to floor level.

Sounds like its fruiting from within the colony. You may need to break into the mycelium to retrieve all of the fruits. If you don't, it will contam. Break the tissue up into small (grain sized) chunks and case it :smile:
