Splitting....
    #2363160 - 02/21/04 11:59 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ive got a casing where all my fruits are splitting-is this due to high humidity or something else? What can I do to remedy this? Just to make it easier my fruiting chamber is a rubbermade 'lock-top' container with lava rock, and an airstone in a quart sized mason jar of water (fed through the lid)...thanks

Actually splitting can be an indication of low RH as well as a dry substrate.

Your setup sounds a lot like a friend of mine's. Always had a RH of 99%+

Thanks,that may make more sense... the casing was looking a bit dry the other day so I patched it up a bit, hopefully that will keep the other maturing pins from splitting...though is there any real negative side effects to split shrooms-obviously lesser yield, but does it make contams a bigger issue?

Shouldn't have an increased contamination risk. After the first flush is harvested, you can dunk the casing to replenish the moisture and probably be in for a better subsequent flushes.
