I'm pretty new at this. I've already harvested my first two crop. However, I begin to smell a weird smell, like when you drink from a bottle of mineral water and you let it sit for two weeks closed: it smells weird. Yet, mushrooms are still growing, the cake is still producing and the shrooms look fine. Is it safe to eat those or should I discard the whole cake+shroom?
Thanks in advance for al your help, may the shroomery last for ever :]
It sounds like a subtle smell, are you sure it's not just normal mushroom smell? Perhaps the smell is coming from the perlite or the terrarium? I would continue to let them grow and harvest, checking for any visual signs of contamination. If the smell gets stronger, it might be an indication of something going on. Just keep an eye on it. . .if the mushies look happy and there is nothing odd-looking, I'd assume it's OK. Good luck;
