contam?
    #1967626 - 09/30/03 10:58 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

My friend has some mushies growing.
They pretty much stopped growing and developed a whitish powder looking texture on the caps.
They used to be straight but have started to bend (they are in a clear container, so this might mean nothing.

I'm thinking its a
1)contam
2)his humidity has been too high (which it has been - don't know if it causes these symptons)
3)he put too much alcohol in the humidifier (he says he usually does this to keep the humidifier from growing shit)

What are your opinions?

Possibly Dry Bubble?

It doesnt seem to be mycelium growing on the caps.

How is this white powder dispersion on the caps ?
It does sound like contamination though.

Yes, Its definately a contam.
He threw them ALL out. :frown:

He said they started looking worse and worse.

The white powder look was solid over the caps, it wasnt spots or anything. Kinda just like a haze.

He said the stipes started to turn green and shrivel, and then he decided to throw em out.
