complications with casing
    #342239 - 06/16/01 04:20 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

i made a tray using Shroom Wizard's tek and at first things were going nice. i noticed that a large section of the mycellium became blue/gray (maybe a hint of green) in the middle. i think it is because when i lift the tray the soil cracks down the middle, right where it is. anyway, my first fruits came and they were growing a bit slow but things still seemed fine. now i noticed that the mushrooms r beginning to get fuzzy at the base and it appears as if mycellium is still growing on their caps. i remember reading that this is due to high humidity so now im guessing i should stop misting them as frequently.

now here's where im stumped. a lot of the shrooms have dark brown caps, stunted growth, and basically look not too healthy. i read a few posts and found out these r called aborts. could this be due to the humidity as well? also, that blueish/gray area (which i was originally positive was bruised mycellium) had spread to a few other places around the tray, and the green is sometimes more pronounced. im not ready to call it contamination though because it seems as if it is the mycellium being stained that color, and NOT a whole different mold itself. ive dealt with contam before and it usually grows on the soil and substrate as does the mycellium, not directly mixed in with the mycellium.

does anyone have any idea y my fruits r now showing stunted growth (the largest ones r maybe 1-2 inches although their veils have broken) and what is the deal with this green stuff?

Stop misting alltogether. Methinks you're drowning your shrooms. And watch out for that green shit.

I agree with Puscle, way too much misting bro. Try not to move that casing tray around so much. WAtch CLOESLY for green molds!

In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, people take prozac to make it normal.
