The caps on one of my casings are getting a bit off. They're not all like the ones I am about to describe but I'm staying weary of them anyway.

Drumstick-like mushrooms. the cap is just a little pea kind of thing and the stem shrinks as it ascends towards this mal-formed cap. The other odd ones are rather small mushrooms, but the cap splits in one place from top to bottom and opens like, well, a vagina, or perhaps the underside of the head of a penis you might say.. just to be fair.

So, WTF?

Thanks for the input.

What is you Rh reading ?
Anyway, low Rh can produce such symptoms.
Also, is this the first time you grow this strain ?

It's B+ from Ralphster. I've grown them before, from the same set of syringes. Also I couldn't tell you my humidity... but the seran wrap over top of the casing has got some condensation and the casing itself seems suitably moist. Also, usually when high humidity occurs I see excess mycelium growth on the caps and far up the stems.... I don't see any on the caps, at least.

You are fruiting and have seran wrap over the casing?

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

yeah actually.. I use the seran wrap over top of it instead of putting the whole casing in a terrarium. It works out pretty well actually. well, aside from this fluke. I wonder if perhaps some of the alcohol I use to clean my gloves off got on to some of the casing. I kind've doubt it though.

It could be verticillium or lack of adequate air exchange.

Do you notice any discoloration at the base of the stem or anywhere on the fruit body, possibly a reddish color?
