Implication of Bluening under cap?
    #3098490 - 09/06/04 12:14 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Several of my ecuadorians are starting to turn blue on the stalks just under the caps. Some of these mushrooms are incased in mycelium. First, what is the implication of the blue?
Second, I am just using 3 liter bottles as terrariums for my first go at this game, and cant seem to keep humidity down, hence the mycelium on the mushrooms. Any suggestions? I have just been unscrewing the bottle caps, but still leaving them on loosly.
Third, could the mycelium stunt their growth, because several are in a dormant stage.
I would like to include pictures but any pictures i take are at least 1MB and shroomery only allows 400kb. Any one know how to condense their size?
Thanks for any help

you can reduce the size with MS Paint, it's a part of windows, there are also many freeware and shareware paint programs

They are probably dormant because a 3 litre bottle would a lot of air exchange. So you would need to fan quite a lot, as much as possible. This will also bring the humidity down every time you do it.

Try a CO2 drainage hole. Reduce the amount of water in the perlite also to cut the humidity back.
