Here are a pictures of a couple cakes I am growing I noticed this round all the mushrooms seem to have a white shell over all of them almost like a protectant of some sort you can clearly see in the picture wondering if anyone has any ideas thank you.

Here's another picture of 1 I grew same condition and environment but y does this one have no outer shell? 

Any tips would be great thank you.

Drop the myc

Honestly as the get larger it will probably fall off..it just looks like mycelium gathered on the caps.

 

when you mist are water droplets geyting on the caps?

Assuming it's the little white spots you're talking about, it's just myc. I've always considered it a good thing because it looks cool. But yeah, as the fruits age/grow they will likely disappear.

think of it as the "cocoon" the pin formed inside, thats why the pins start off a little fuzzy and those white spots are residuall myceiul from that. is my understanding, makes sense to me.

When I missed water drops are not gathering on the caps, I appreciate it both of you for the advice, I'm wondering if I need to mist a little more? Not directly on the mushrooms but on the side and lids.

I've never done cakes but as long as the caps aren't cracking your humidity is good, looks like theres water on the walls so its not DRY in there. 

 you dont want to over mist  them as it can cause bacterial blotch.

It's not to be considered a bad thing at all. Wanted, if anything. Don't try to fix it. :P

      Pretty crappy quality pic, but, everything was white.  Started GT spores on agar here 6 days ago.  Took pic in still air box, may be contaminated now but who knows, I'll find out soon enough.   Cut into 6 pieces.  1 went into a jar of LC, 5 went into WBS jars. Going to be doing another round of WBS and 1 LC in the next week or two, whenever my PES hawaiin spores get here from different vendor.

      I'm back. Nd yeah absent thoughts i got a super nice pinset going now no casing layer! on 3rd flush, also made a super clean LC. Strain is PF CLASSIC. I did make a print from the GT i doubt the sterility of it though so im not wasting any time with that yet.. Things are moving along

      Parts per million and electrical current of the water.  Measured before you feed and after(after is measured through runoff).  You can buy a meter to test water with nutrient solution.  Although there is a K.I.S.S. method that wirks fine amd you dont need meters and a lot of water testing.  Just get Maxibloom and weigh out 7 grams per gallon of water, or use flora Nova bloom as directed.  With a ppm/EC meter you can fine tune exactly how much nutes your plants are getting for perfect dosage of the nutrients if you will.
