I am not an expert at all... but I have only experienced this when it is too dry!

I would inject my casing with some sterile water and increase humity...

Humidity is High up to 85%....maybe its the air pump hose blowing over them, could submerge it to create moist air but theres no room ....ill point it another direction cuz you might be right about the dryness. Thanks.

My initial reaction is dryness, but it seems like I remember some contams that might cause cracking. Not sure though, and I don't have TMC here, somebody may want to check. Dryness is more likely though. How accurate is your hygrometer? You can calibrate it with salt, water and tupperware.

You could always hang a small container of water for the hose to bubble through on the side of the terrerium, thus not taking up real estate. Something small would be fine.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

I took a look TMC ...

'The effect of dry air on Psilocybe cubensis caps, a condition known as "scaling".'

I'm assuming dry air could have an effect on the caps during any stage of a mushroom's life so you may want to try increasing the humidity. If that doesn't work it may be contams.


Are you using a casing?

yep, using a casing..50/50+ actualy. The humidity is fine, I think it was just the dry air comming out of the freshair hose..I pointed it another direction....Interesting to think it might be some sort of contam though. ......I know this is off the threads subject but I picked my shrooms right out of the dirt and patch the spot where they were picked....I had to press down on the casing a little to uproot the fruits...I didnt wanna use a scalpel or sharp knife to remove them because I was thinking what was left behind was just a dead piece of meat for contams to feed off of, or even rot........maybe ill post a separate thread for this question
