mycelium on caps?
    #3977930 - 03/27/05 11:40 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I had a little bit of mycelium on a few caps. No biggie. But now the caps are split open were that mycelium was. Should I pull the shrooms? Is this normal?

mycelium on caps is a sign of a humidity problem although some cubes get speckles of mycel which is normal. Now that they cracked that is a sign of low humidity

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

It just seems weird that its only tearing or folding in the small area were the mycelium was on the cap. I will try to up the humidity though. Thnx

Wrong way. Myc on caps usualy means rh is to high. A little more air exchange would lower it.

But if the caps are now splitting then the RH is too low, would it not??? Maybe what he thought was mycellium were actually the beginnings of the cracks?? Do you have a hygrometer? If so that could help us know whats going on with your caps.

Yea I got a new meter cause my old one was not working right. I got a digital and its reading 91% Thats good for Denver in this dry climate. The caps are still connected to the stems except except were the mycelium was on them. They split or peeled back to the top. Now that I have a better Gage on my humidity hopefully it should stop.
