How is your RH and casing/cake moisture? I reckon its a bit dry.

Humidity at 97% and cakes seems to be fairly moist...This shroom has mycelium at the base of the stem. Is that a sign of humidty problem ?

My humidity guage is a very cheap one, so it may not be too accurate.

97% is ok, but high for casings. Fuzz at the bottom of the stem indicates high humidity (its not a problem). Maybe its just old age or its been bashed.

Well it did fall over during the night...the cake couldn't support the weight of it. Maybe that caused it ??

Could well have, its best to pick them just after the veil tears, they look cute then.

I would also give your cake a nice dunk after the flush is done, to make sure there is plenty of water for the next flush.

Nice shroom, i notice caps break like that if i shake them too much, just a thought but that's normally how i wind up with a cap with a split, well at least if it was nice when i picked it..

this can happen when you let them mature too far. did it drop its spores before you harvested?
peace

No, it had not dropped its spores...in fact I was waiting for the cap to flatten out a little bit more to make a spore print, but just decided to go ahead and pick it.

Just got through dunking that cake and four others.
