Wierd Black spot on caps
    #1860830 - 08/28/03 11:52 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Within a few hours of harvesting a mushroom from a brf cake, a black, squishy spot, somewhat depressed, developed on the center of the cap. Anyone have any idea? Ont his cake, I noticed some black film as well, it looked like dust, I thought it was just spores or something. I've removed the cake from the incubator....

thanks.

Is it the damaged mycelium ? What i mean is,
is the area, an area you picked fruit from?
As bits of mushroom left after picking can
turn black and squishy.

No, it was in the center of the cap of the mushroom. About 1/8 the radius of the cap, slightly depressed from the level of the cap, very black, and much softer than the surrounding cap. I have never seen it on any other mushroms, I threw it away, thought it might be dangerous, does anyone know what it is, and if there is danger from the other shrooms on the same cake that look fine?

it could be that it was bumped or hit something in the grow chamber,and what you are getting is a bruse and its turning black because its on the cap rather then turning blue...

It might be a fungal rot. If the cap was otherwise normal and just part of it got soft and squishy it could be rot. Keep a close watch on the others and dont let water sit on the caps if you mist heavily.

Maybe bacterial blotch on the cap but the rest of the crop should be ok. You did well cutting that cap, you should toss it, no need taking any risk.
