shrooms growing on the side of casing, help
    #4347217 - 06/28/05 05:12 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

hi, finally some shrooms are starting to show but they are very tiny so far since ive noticed it this morning and their growing on the side of the casing, where the mycellium is completly covered heavy, versus the top where its partially covered and very lighting.. Also, because my casing has been dry a couple days back made the casing shrink just a little bit so the sides of the casing are open to the air (only 2 sides are like this and they are the longer sides of the container which is about 6 x 3 x 2 inches where the 3 inch side is where the mycellium is about half an inch away from the side or a little less.

My question, is this going to be a problem for the mushrooms to sprout?

and

Should I remove the entire casing off the plastic container its in and place it on a flat plate so that the sides are open to grow mushrooms?

also, do you guys think the shrooms will eventually grow off the top at all?

Thanks!

No, the initial pinset, lights the way.

Your ok, birth it and fruit it as a cake. Next time wet your casing layer more, this will get the pins on top and not from other areas.

The bad thing about getting shrooms on the bottom and sides is that if unpicked they will rot and cause contami8nation.

hey i just flipped it on some foil(3 layers) over pertlie.. and there is a bigger shroom that was on the bottom that i didnt see!! Its almost 1 inch.. looks like it got bruised, the coloring on it is a little brown mixed with the white on the stem of the mushroom..

Also, theres a bunch of little shrooms on the botoom (which is now the top) do you think these will grow more? some of them are kind of smushed, and some are very smushed, should i also remove these when i pick them and also are they ok to eat?

is this alright to eat?


also, when should i pick these mushrooms so that they dont go bad? i  will post pics tomorrow when i go to work, but for right now, do u think i should let it fruit for how many more days? (based on my case)?


Thanks allot!! :thanx:

I've always tried to pick almost a whole flush at a time, or right after the veil on the underside of the mushroom breaks.

Yep, they'll grow up just fine. Watch out for black splotches (indicating rot) in which case you can cut away the rotten area just like a banana.

A nice trick is to touch any discolored area with a swab soaked in h2o2.
If the swab comes away clean yer good, if the swab is discolored, remove the bad area.

:peace:
