Does this casing sound like it's doomed?
    #1529610 - 05/08/03 02:41 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Well, my friend just harvested a bunch of mature shrooms off of a casing. The pins that were growing aborted. The casing has now pulled away from the sides somewhat. The casing doesn't really smell too shroomey anymore. Somewhat, but not really. He's not sure if this is normal or what.

My friend suspects that the casing is dying, due to mold, which would explain the not so shroomey smell anymore, and the fact that the pins aborted. He has just sprayed it all down with a water/peroxide mix.

What are your thoughts on this?

I'm not experienced enough to give a good judgement, but if the case isnt sticking to the side then it could be really dry and is just asking you to dunk it.

ask if there are any unusual colors and try and get a geed discription of the smell, normaly is not a very good sign if the smell goes south, but contamination on a fully colonized casing generaly doesnt cause it to abort pins....as was stated, a lack of water may be the culprit in that....keep it moist and humid, use sterile water or at least distilled and watch it for a few days. you should know in 4 or less if there is contamination....if you still cant tell...or the smell just gets worse....maybe it's time to say goodbye.....

Give it a rest for few days and then put it back to fruiting chamber.
