Black on top?
    #906999 - 09/25/02 12:02 PM (19 years, 3 days ago)

What would cause mushrooms to be stained black on their top?  I would think it was spores but even the tallest mushies have the stain.  Anyone ever see this? :confused:

I have seen that before. But only on shroom's from a 5th, 6th, or 7th flush, as the casing was shrinking, about out of moisture & nutes.

About that time I stop ventilating them & they are ready for the out door pile.

So, it may (best guess) have something to do with ventilation & them not getting enough air exchange?

Yeah, the spores end up on the cap for some reason, dunno how they get there, from underneath. I read somewhere that the force that the mushroom uses to blow the spore from the gills, is the strongest propulsion found in nature (relative to size). !!

Good luck

Abhorts heads turn black don't forget. If all your shroomies heads turn black, it could be spores but could also be rotting. If it doesn't have a slight purlish hue, then it's probably not spores.
