fluffy stuff on shrooms??
    #1663875 - 06/26/03 08:55 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

The mushrooms on my cake have stopped growing for about 2 days now, it's like they just paused for 2 days, and now they have a very thin white fluffy substance on their caps. The humidity has been high and at a constant 85 degrees. I have perlite and it's in my room so the conditions aren't in my control. I hope that it's because there is too much humidity or somethign but could it be a contamination or mold??? i hope not

It's probably just mycelium growth, lower the humidity.

thanx, how do you think i should lower the humidity, i have perlite on the bottom and i don't spray or add water. I don't know how to lower the temp, it's at a constant 85 degrees without added heat or light.

Don't stress over it they'll grow all same. Its probably not worth the hassel, plus if you mess with it too little humidity is far worse.
