first flush confusion
    #1582232 - 05/27/03 07:37 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

What are mushroom caps supposed to feel like? My freinds are a little slimy? The shrooms smell like urine transferred into them. After they're dried, will this continue to be a problem?

Possible contam that you might not have noticed during colonization.. That would be my first guess. The mushrooms should NOT be dry if they are growing. Remember mushrooms are like 95% water so them being slimy is kinda good but it depends on what exaclty you mean. And they sure shouldn't smell like urine, that is a possible sign of contam.. I would suggest thinking back to colonization and seeing if you remember anything that looked odd, if so trash them. If you think and are pretty confident that there was no contam during colonization then keep them, but urine smell doesn't mean good

Could be nitrafying bacteria in your substrate.It will give an ammonia smell.
