Wierd Casing Question
    #3976249 - 03/27/05 04:15 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Right before I left for vacation I recased a casing I had with some mushroom compost I bought at Lowes. I put the casing covered in foil in a dark place, and when I came back today there were alot of thin albino shrooms that are between 1 and 2 inches big. If I put these into my fruiting chamber and give them some light, will they perk up and grow to be normal shrooms? Any advise would be great...

That mushroom compost was utilized by mushrooms previously...is there any chance what you're seeing is an entirely different species?

no...im pretty sure theyre cubes....just they had been previously fruiting so i think they kept it up. Basically my question is should I pull them and let new ones come up, or will they develop into "normal" cubes under the right conditions.

Out of curiosity I would let them develop... Just an opinion.

I'm pretty sure that 'mushroom compost' is SPENT commercial compost that WAS used for mushroom cultivation.
It is not a suitable for MORE mushroom cultivation.

This was my first thought also. Did you sterilize/pasteurize the substrate?

yeah i did sterilize...i thought the compost would be good considering it contained many ingredients used for casing or bulk. I really don't believe my problem is arising from the compost though - the mushrooms growing look normal except theyre very pale with small caps. I am just wondering if anyone has seen this problem come about from a lack of light or too much CO2. As I said, I recased right before leaving which was nearly 10 days ago, and left the casing covered in aluminum foil unattended to for that long.
