White Fuzz - Are they Alright??
    #2410446 - 03/09/04 10:51 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hi...I seem to be getting ALOT of white fuzz growing along ALL of the stems, eventually it catches up to the cap and it seems to cause them to stop growing??? I know in the FAQ it says that they will be alright but the pictures do not show the fuzz as extreme as i seem to have it?? I've uploaded a couple of pixs to show. What should I do??? I'm a ROOKIE!!!

Peace Out !

Somethin ain't right, thats for sure. I don't think their contaminated but their definetly not happy. They're all fuzzy and growing randomly. I'd guess too much humidity and CO2. Whats your lighting situation? I ask because they're all pointing in different directions. Seems weird to me but I'm more of a hunter than a grower.

More light, more fan and the next flush should be fine. And pick those shrooms if you haven't already.

How often should I fan them out?? I currently fan them once a day for about a minute.
How long should the light be on for?

Instead of using the snap on lid that came with the container, what if I used tin foil to cover it with some tooth pick holes to allow for air exchange? Would this resolve my problem?

I assume the mushrooms that are all FUZZY white now are garbage???
Where else can I get information on growing with hay as the medium?

Thanks for all your help so far!!!

Mushrooms are growing in all directions due the lack of light.
You have a serious problem of green starting to grow over there. The uncolonized layer of straw on top, will get contaminated in no time. Pick the mushrooms ASAP, read the salt tek in the sticky thread, use it and pray.
