stripes on stems
    #2555577 - 04/13/04 06:23 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I've seen brown stripes on growing shrooms before, mostly on ecuador, but on others as well to a lesser degree. Lately, I've seen this on eq's grown off straw where the fruits were larger than previously seen.

Except that the stripes are starting to cave into the stem of the shrooms. Not healthy looking. I always thought it was just coloring, but it is having an effect on maturing fruits. Has anyone else seen this?

Now, I have seen colored stems on a few strains of Cubensis, and have seen the stripes you talk about also. I think it is the result of the natural coloring accentuated by excess water absorbtion. The extra water makes it look darker. If you actually have "soft spots" on the stems, then that is bad.

Coloring is normal, odd shaped mushrooms and mangled stems are also common. Caved in portions of the stem are not. Try cutting your humidity back a bit. It does appear you have a bit of excess mycelium on the stem bases which usually indicates high humidity. Higher than normal fruiting temperatures can also cause mushrooms to grow faster, but have thin hollow stems.

To give is to live...
