Burnt looking shroom
    #482107 - 12/06/01 05:03 PM (16 years, 10 months ago)

Hmmmm.... So I'm in the process of getting ready to harvest my first crop. I noticed a few things that I am worried about...

Some of my mushrooms' caps look like they were touched with a lighter or something on the top and have what looks like a mild burn mark on them. Is this ok or should i trash the shrooms. Also some of the pearlite looks a little moldy or something ( a little grey ) -- and it was right under a cake. I moved the cake and took out the grey shit , but could it lead to contam?

Once again thank you all for your help....
Baba

It sounds like the taller mushrooms have dropped their spores on the smaller shrooms and perlite. Unless the "gray stuff" starts growing, or smelling, I wouldn't worry about it.

It could be spores as pointed out but it also could be the mold getting ahold of your shrooms. Its up to you in this respect to make the judgement. If they look as if they are rotting (black is gooey etc) then obviously the contamination has got to them. If it appears to be purple-ish black dust then your boys have been dropping their spores and you have nothing to worry about. Touch the burn mark, if the dust comes off onto you finger then you have your answer.
