White Fuzz, Specks, And Covered Cap

Question

zipzap

This is flush 2, ~24 hours after undunking.

 

Signs & Symptoms

 

  • White completely covering a cap - (pic 3)
  • White specs on other caps - (1-3)
  • Clumps of white fuzz almost looking like cobweb but less stringy and white (not gray) - (1-3)

 

I don't know what it is as I'm still very new at this - it just caught my eye and threw up red flags

 

What do you think?

 

 

Side Note: In flush 1, at the very bottoms, some stems had very fine (short) white hair on them, mostly on the largest mushrooms.  Being unsure if it was a 'tam or not I harvested/dried stored them.  Z strain.

 

-----Should those be tossed?

let em go longer, the caps that have it on them are probably aborts that are supporting myc growth again. The fuzzy stuff at the bases I've seen before due to higher fruiting temps (76*+) and high RH (90%+). What are your fruiting temps? RH? I'd wait it out for another few days and see what happens. If there is no green, I'd harvest and munch :D

Thanks shroomy_peace for the insight.  No green yet :D

 

Fruiting temps have been 70-74* F, and ~60% RH outside tubs for both measurements.  They are in zombie tubs so I would speculate the RH is a lot higher inside (as it should be by design), and possibly the temperature too.  I can rig my sensor inside for a day and check it out.  Will post back.

 

  Is it common for myc to have a growth phase/increase again just after dunking?  If so, that could account for the white fuzz in the crevices of the casing.

It is common for it to colonize on the dead tissue from aborts or if they are fruiting for a long period of time. The fuzzy spots are the kind of myc growth (not rhizo) can't remember what it is called, but usually that happens when it isn't actually growing to something, just off of something IME.

Thanks for the details! That one white one has stayed as-is and the rest of the zt is still fruiting, albeit more slowly than the tub next to it, but the rest of it looks good. In in-tub humidity is 95%, and temp is 69F. And all the stems have fuzz on them, but it looks healthy.

I want to say cottony but am probably wrong. Interesting side note: I did get one mushroom with a crazy looking deformed cap... Will post a picture when I get the chance. kibbles: report back once you know the outcome, it'll make this thread have twice the anecdotal evidence (which is almost all we have)!

It's your RH. cased substrate shouldn't be any higher than 85%.I've had the same issue with a tub that I couldn't fan as much because of the work week. The RH was super high and the mycelium fuzz was every where.Sent from my SCH-I510 using Tapatalk 2

+1 Now to loosen the polyfill some more..  thanks for the cutoff number (85%) as I like having numbers to work with - it makes measurements useful by giving them a reference  :)

 

Thanks everyone for the general knowledge, this community is an abundance of help and support

      Title Kinda states it all, Have multiple strains Knocked up By MS, bad weather destroyed all my cultures so i am restarting.  Should all be ready to go in 2 and 3 weeks.  Using WBS and Rye grains to look at differences in times and potency, takein the golden teacher to Agar as too the MS syringe is tamed. 66qt tubs,  not much more to be said at the moment either than, this will be a large grow and will start posting pictures of progress for educational purposes  when my master jars are about to be G2G. i have 16 master jars and plan setting them all to 10 jars (160 Qts of spawn). lets see if we can get pans to run strong in a mono, thats really all i care about, spore prints of the cubes will be available for trade or just for fun , Pans are up in the air as to experimental on my part  Ask questions ill answer to the best of my ablity if your curious, until then, you wont here back from me happy trails

      coming from someone who builds homes  for a living.... that will DESTROY that room in a few months, black mold everywhere etc.....love the fact that you have a GH room, thats dope but, unless you have (please dont take offense to this) a more professional build on This "GH room", you will end up destroying that room. i have though of building a shed for this purpose many time...unfortunately i do not own my own home yet

      Haha I 'm pretty sure I learned that from reading your posts about it. It's really a great way to do it, so thanks for the pro tip!

      Thank you.I didn't think this seemed right.time bulk casing I use comes from non-sponsor vendor, sms it seems really good.this Will bye muy first dedicated monotub grow- I've only done cakes so far. Dip,a little feast sms a lot of questions seem to be right in line.it seems maybe the person telling me this isn't real grower material? I've never seem any results from him, and I guess I can see why. I appreciate all your input, and I'm really grateful for your time.thank you so much. "Nothing says trouble like a woman laughing when shit ain't funny"                            John c. Mcginley Man,i wish I could spell. Thank you, seriously.I appreciate the input.
