Split caps
    #1889143 - 09/07/03 03:33 AM (19 years, 3 months ago)

Some of my friend's shrooms have split caps and he thinks it could be that the humidity is to high because they are definitely not dry. He was wondering if he could still use these shrooms to make spore prints with or if that requires more idealistic looking specimens.  :oogle:

low humidity, raise the RH, might need more air exchange also

When the mushrooms grow too fast due to excess humidity, or high heat they can split. Low humidity can cause the same thing, but it is a dry split. You will know when its too low because the mushrooms will be dry/woody feeling instead of moist.

If you want to raise RH and increase air exchange go with cool mist.
