contamination in the terrairium? (pic)
    #916718 - 09/29/02 01:38 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

It's one week ago I put them in the terrarium?
Can anyone tell me what's on with them?





Are they O.K. or not and if not is there any rescue?
thanx

don't crosspost plz
i think you got a real problem of HIGH HUMIDITY
You are prolly using perlite for humidifcation, try to fan more often to keep rh less high

Your casing is way too wet.
Your humidity is way to high.
Use perlite for humidity, get rid of the standing water.
Increase air exchange - fan more often.
I also think the water is dripping from the lid onto the casing = bad (use a drip shield)

Your casing has a bad case of verticillium, it also looks like the shrooms are starting to rot.
Take the above measures, it may be too late for this casing tho :frown:

Good luck

And cover up the sides of that casing containing that the mushrooms are in. You will have pins growing on the sides and towards the bottom. They will grow towards the light source. BTW what strain is that?

Are you sure that it is a contamination (no other possibilities)
Is verticillium poisonous, so do I have to throw them away?
Or is it possible to stop it?
I don't want to try any shroom if there is any risk.

>Are you sure that it is a contamination (no other possibilities)

Yes, I can tell by the deformed caps, and the 'browning.

>Is verticillium poisonous, so do I have to throw them away?

No, its not poisonous, but is usually precedes other contams. Post some more pics soon.

>Or is it possible to stop it?

You may be too late, the way to prevent it, is more air exchange, less humidity, try it now, see if they perk up.

Good luck
