Do you think this stem is safe to eat? I have an eigth and only a couple of the stems are infected with this frost/mold on the ends. They smell the same as the other mushrooms and it seems like it hasnt spread to the other mushrooms, but I just wanted to check in with the experts on the forum. On the other side there are golden looking crystals forming on top of the white stuff. Ever see this before? I sure haven't.

im not sure, but i think its just mycellium(sp) with vermiculite on it. You should be fine, brush off the verm if you can/want. Maybe wait for another opinion before munchin

That's perfectly normal.
day_tripper made a good guess, the "white frost" is just dried mycelium and "golden looking crystals" are just vermiculite pieces, which in this case are just a leftover of the cultivation process.
Have a nice trip :wink:
