dark/blackish caps
    #901438 - 09/23/02 11:54 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

some of my shrooms heads are black rather than red. as they grow off the cakes i can see some are clearly redish and others are darker, closer to black. does this indicated contamination or is it to be expected?
I also had a question about when to pick. is the best time while it's a round bulbus head rather than a mushroom cap? do i want to pick before they develop into caps?
lastly, i could not find damp gone which is the method of drying recommended in the materials I've been following. Are other products like it acceptable?

Its probably spores. They are purplish color but appear black in high concentration. The spores should wipe right off.

Best time to pick IMHO is about 6 hours after viel breaks. These last 6-12 hours they really put on weight. Anytime around viel breakage is good.

Well now that i think about you didnt say what state your mushies are in. If they abort the caps will darken. The only usually abort around the pinning stage. Not when they are starting to grow really fast.
