Whoa, you might be growing the wrong kind of mushroom :biggrin:

Maybe something in the soil, or not PESA in there. I would say the former since you probably spawned Cubensis in there.

 

It definitely isn't the eggs.

They look like tiny lil mushrooms to me....

 

I have been working with PESA and have a clone that looks absolutely nothing like everything else that has been grow from the same print... They are short and stout with DARK brown caps while the rest grow from that print have been tall, skinny, with light brown caps...

 

None of what I have grown from any PESA print looks anything like those... They look like mushrooms to me but they look like a completely different type of mushroom... Is it possible that there is a different type of mushroom that made it into your substrate through the soil you are using or some other means? How did you prepare the substrate?

They look like King Oyster pins (Pleurotus eryngii). I may be wrong.

 

At least they're going to be edible. Probably.

I remember some tiny mushrooms coming up from my plant soil from overhydrating it, they were dark brown like this with some lighter brown accents, I think the mycelium was somewhat yellow. Maybe some type of Mycena? I have no clue really.

 

If I look at pictures of king oyster pins they don't look like this.

I've been having a heck of a time finding good images of King Oyster pins.

 

They definitely look "oyster-like" mushroom to me, but now I'm thinking they could be Pioppinos (Agrocybe Cylindracea).

Haha macgyver, I was tempted to throw out the "you should clone that cluster" bit I don't think it will be worth the trouble...

I dont know what those are called but Ive definitely had them come up in a planter box I was growing some veggies in.

Something in the soil I used, which was jus some Home Depot potting soil.

I mean it could explain why i cant get this to fruit... Competition...

I ran it through a bunch of agar plates. Bunch of transfers...to popcorn..

Im leaving it for a minute... Before i toss it outside in the compost pile. Maybe it will go somewhere from there.

PJammer to answer your question. I pc'd my soil and egg cartons. After handing a bunch to mix, i pasteurized on a hot day, let cool. ran my air purifier on high. Sprayed alcohol waited
i believe i used a new clear bag as a SAB, dumped my bags and jar and mixed well and covered with a piece of plastic wrap.

I didnt pc the Vermiculite i used to case.... :( bummer.

Still gonna let it ride for a minute

this is a strange one... I look forward to finding out if that tiny little mushroom has monopolized the entire substrate or if there will be different, typical, PESA popping up soon. Is there any chance you were given the wrong spores or was this started from LC that has produced proper PESA in the past? Perhaps this is just a weird mutation... If some time passes with no change, dunk it even if you don't think it needs it and see what it produces... Who knows, maybe you will get different shaped 2nd flush mushrooms like when PE produces fewer blobs on later flushes. It is unlikely but it was also unlikely for it to produce these weird lil mushrooms to start with.

As I mentioned, these look like a Peziza species or similar cup fungus. No clue how it would have gotten in there.

I was gifted a swab from very reliable member here. So I highly doubt its anything from that end.

Super curious to see if Newmoon is correct with the peziza.
