Just a quick question? I am currently in my first flush of 5 cakes. The question is I seem to be getting a lot of deformed caps on one of my cakes. Is there anything that could cause this? Strain, stress, thristy? Not to worried but if there is something obvious I would like to know. THX

Mutations are frequent. Batches of mutations may indicate something is wrong with the growing conditions... Or it may be that for some reason that particular batch of spores expresses a greater than average number of mutations... No way to know really without closely looking at a lot of variables.

Got a Pic?

could be chemical residues, parasites, etc.
the possibilities are enormous.
i'd advise isolating that cake, just in case it is parasites.

Does it look like cauliflower? Like a bunch of tiny aborts with no caps in big (~1/2" diameter)clusters? I have seen that before. It either happens a lot or not at all. It must be the particular strain you have. When I have seen this it has been on cakes in a terrarium with cakes of another strain. The other cakes in the terrarium did fine so I doubt it is due to humidity.

Also, what did you use for the substrate? Once I used some Rye flour (PF tek, otherwise), the fruiting was (compared to BRF) poor with several of these "cauliflower" patches.
