Verticillium.
You need to lower your humidity and increase air exchange.

Good luck

thanks for the reply, i have a few more questions...

i'm confused because i also have white fluff covering my shroomz like a fur coat, which i thought was a sign of low humidity. how would i go about lowering my humidity (i have a fish tank and shroomz in the container placed in water) and would this stunt the growth of my mushies?

also, more importantly, its on some the shroomz i've cropped already, would they be okay to eat? why is Verticillium bad for the mushrooms or me?

thanks in advance

ANother sign of Verticilium

More air exchange, are you just using a fishtank heater in water for hunidity?? Fan more often.


>would this stunt the growth of my mushies?

No, it shouldn't

>also, more importantly, its on some the shroomz i've cropped already, would they be okay to eat?

Yes, it is non pathogenic


>why is Verticillium bad for the mushrooms or me?

Its bad for the mushies because:
It leads to deformities, split stems, 'hair lip' caps etc.
It is sometimes followed by other contams.
Severe cases of mushrooms infected will fill with liquid.

Clean out your terraRium, increase air exchange.
This is one of the most common contams, also one of the easier to get rid of.

Good luck
