tiny white specks on young fruits
    #1849347 - 08/25/03 08:36 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I wish I had a camera! Is it normal for younger mushrooms (pins) to have white specs on the caps? Mycelia? Is this just the cap changing from white to brown?    :confused:

Younger mushrooms get spores dropped on them from older mushrooms. Creating White Fuzz. That's is 1 reason why ppl harvest closed cap shroomz. Once the spores fall I think it may slow growth of new shroomz (Not Sure).

Totally normal to see white flecks on the caps. Could be related to humidity level being higher than needed, but just could be the way shrooms develop. Never seems to be a problem as they get bigger, relax and enjoy the show! :mushroom2:

The white flecks appear due genetic factors... maybe the creator wanted it to be prettier for some strains...
