empty stalks in dried shrooms
    #3770187 - 02/12/05 07:41 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

something went wrong during shroom drying: stalks have become completely empty! only the external "skin" survived, they are like thin tubes now. what was wrong? they dried at open air, i know its not the best method but i had done it last time and everything was ok...

Worms maybe.......? (joke).

Were they hollow to begin with, or meaty solid stems?

they were these 3 shrooms (well... 2 shrooms and 1 abort), the big one was a bit hollow in the darker (upper) half, but not SO MUCH hollow! what can it be? micro-parasites? rotting?

Someone else posted that he dried em in open air and got the same thing so I'm gonna have to guess it is some kind of rot. (This is a guess)

That happened to me on my first grow as well. One of my stalks split open on the cake, and it was hollow.
