Caps turned black - what is this?
    #1915911 - 09/14/03 06:17 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

When I went to bed last night, I noticed a small ring of black forming around some of my largest caps... This morning, this is what I woke to:



!!!
What the hell is that? Is it a mold or mildew?
This is the second flush of the same cakes. The first flush never had a problem with any sort of contam, and I've fanned this flush about 2x as many times and paid more attention to RH.

It doesn't seem to be rot, because as you can see below, if I rub it with a finger, it comes off... it's almost the constistnecy of spores. Leads me to believe it's some sort of mildew.



How fucked is this flush? Can I still use those caps? Is my whole flush fried? If I have to get rid of the black caps, can I allow the rest of the non-blackened fruits to mature? I'm worried - I appreciate any help on this one...

Spores. Just spores. Wipe them onto a paper towel and I bet they are purple.

EDIT: I get the same thing. And don't ask me how the hell they get up there. They just do.

spores are microscopically tiny...and ultra light...when they get released they float in the air and settle on top of the caps....

I agree with them the air curent takes em up and the land on the caps.looking at the pic all the caps are open flat so they should be picked and printed but if you are not going to take spore prints you could have pick them when the viel brakes

Whew!  That was actually the first thing that crossed my mind, since when I wiped one off it had the consistency of spores.

That is extremely good news - thanks a ton, kids! :smile:
