More Twisters!?! Is this Normal for Thai?
    #3345702 - 11/11/04 09:22 AM (12 years, 30 days ago)

These Thai Koi Samui are about 7days into fruiting, but im not sure of some things. The furry stuff (on Cake1 & Cake2) is this mycelium that continued to grow or cobweb mould or the likes. Also some of the shrooms are growing all twisted & thin. Someone else posted with a similar problem, but much worse & it was due to internal contamination, what do you think. Could light intensity, humidity & heat be a cause, or are these shrooms meant to grow like this??

If you go to 'mypics' [link at the top left, next to 'myhome'] you should be able to see your pic thumbnails. Click on a thumbnail and it should give you the right entry to cut and paste.

Here are some more pictures. Some mushrooms seem to be growing strong& healthy & others small & twisty. Some have also got furry hair-like stuff at the bases of the mushrooms. In the one pic the black stuff on the shroom is just spores but u can see the furry white stuff at the base. Is this just mycelium? Most of the shrooms have slighly brown stems, could this be vermicillium contam??

The white fuzz at the base of the stems is mycelium. . .I don't see anything to worry about in your pics.

Yeap, they look good to me.
Just a note though. If you keep changing the place of your light source, the mushrooms will grow a bit confused and will probably keep heading on all directions. Also, if you use some kind of material causing too much light refraction on a drop shield or other cover, then it might cause this situation too.

thanks maia&suntzu, the fruiting chamber has a strip of clingwrap over the top which has a lot of condensation, this is probably reflecting light all over the place.

i agree the twisting is from your light source not your strain

This shroom as well as some others show a strange sort of greening of the cap. what is this?? are the caps and stems still edible.
