pin stems splitting - scaling or contamination?
    #4208178 - 05/22/05 11:24 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I was observing a normal PF-style setup in perlite humidified containers. The cakes are pinning in one container, and the pins are moderately developed (about 2/3 inch in length). Nearly all the pins on the cakes are developing lengthwise splits about 1/4 inch in length on the stems. There are no signs of discoloring or other contamination.

Could this be scaling, perhaps due to improper humidity level in the container, or is there a contaminant that causes splitting of the stems of small mushrooms & pins? I did some looking on the internet, but was unable to find much information.

Thanks to anyone who might elucidate regarding this phenomena I have observed.

Could be mutes. Have you been spraying any thing like lysol or oust around? Or any cleaning agents?

Pertaining to what Diver said. I made the mistake of spraying a little anibacterial cleaner/bleach on the ceiling behind my foging fan to clean and after the second spray, I realized that it was being sprayed around the room. 2 days later, all of my fruits had begun to split whereas whe flush before that were fine and all environmental factors were still exactly the same. I can only deduce that it was the cleaning agent. I have also heard that humidity can cause splits....tooo much and too little.

The only thing I can think of is that colloidal silver and h2O2 were put into the perlite in moderate amount, which was to prevent bacterial contam. Other than that, humidity seems pretty much normal. They will be allowed to grow out to see what happens.
