Darkening Caps
    #4650434 - 09/12/05 03:39 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

hey all,

I have been growing for a couple of months now, I did some PF cakes first, and have been recently cased a few of the BRF cakes, using 50/50 tek.

anyway, the flushes have been great, but every once in a while, i see a cap that slowly turns a dark black/purple color, just like the color laid down as a spore print. This happens as the caps open up and flatten, and the color CAN be wiped off. any ideas what this color is from? is it possible that the dark color is from spores being dropped, and floating up on top of the cap??? that seems impossible to me, as i have one example right now of a lone mushroom not near any others with a dark cap. there is no way spores got dropped on its cap from another shroom.

Thanks for your help!

Well,

It happens because the spores are microscopic and weigh almost nothing. So its no big deal for them do be carried on top of the caps real easily with just the little bit of airflow in the fruting chamber. How do you think they travel in nature?
