Caps splitting

Just before the veils break, what is the major cause of caps splitting open on top? SixTango  :tongue:

I?d say too little moisture in the air.

Thanks Anno. To little moisture is what I thought. It is not disease. The ones my foaf saw were healthy, big, fat & happy - except the mildly split caps. SixTango  :tongue:

IME it is low humidity or direct exposure to light (of sufficient strength, e.g. the sun)... which yields a high evaporation rate on the surface of darker mushrooms.
