huge veil, bluing at head/veil junction.
    #3829445 - 02/24/05 09:39 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I posted the other day about the veil being big. I checked on the guys today and the veil is still enormous, about the same size as the head itself, and the head is beginning to blue a bit...it almost looks like it's rotting, not just bluing. Here are a few pictures.
The whole cake:

The particular shroom I'm more worried about:


It's a pretty weak cake. I used the no vermiculite, just straight cooked brown rice method. I really do not recommend this method. I live in a very small town and there was literally no vermiculite in town, so I chose this method. The cake has shrunken dramatically, probably in part due to the lack of vermiculite, and the other part is that my chamber may not be sealed/heated adequately. Hopefully the mushroom isn't dying, but this would not surprise me. It's my first attempt so I'm glad I've anything. Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

the veil is about to break soon. its just bruising. your mushies look like they get really crappy air exchange by the way IMO. id be willing to bet it will tear by tommorow afternoon.

yeah, looks like lack of oxygen, watch when the viel breaks to see that is not bacterial blotch on the caps.

There is a good chance of it being due to air exchange. I can only change the air every so often. I wouldn't have considered that. Thanks.
