Here are some pics of a recent flush and was hopeing maybe someone had an idea of why my shrooms are weird looking. I heard that bad air circulation does it, which would make sense because i often am not around to fan them, but at the same time other fruits are growing normaly in the same terrarium. Also the other pic is of a cluster which hasnt grown very much since they sprang up, but I dont have enough experience with abhorts to tell if these are. and thoughts?

oh by the way the strain is koh samui SS, and this isnt the first time they turn out very short and stubby, but some are long and skinny. very odd strain. any tips from KSSS pros?

recently i also had the same short stubby fruits with thin caps as your pic on the left with orissa india & mexi-cube grown invitro in mycobags. i'm interested to hear opinions regarding your question. like you said it might be bad air circulation since i know in my case, air circulation is limited in the bags.

Looks like some of the shrooms may have a touch of verticillium. It is a fungus that parasitizes the fruit bodies leaving them deformed.

I have seen funny looking ksss before and the guy swore that it was not vert.

I also believe they are infected...The caps that turn hazy white usually do not grow much further...Sometimes the second flush comes in with less deformation...I never use caps from these grows for printing as it seems those characteristics are easily passed along to the next generation..

yeah, KSSS are known to be deformed a bit. same with orissa india actually. i had a really bad orissa strain a few years ago... looked just like that only worse. might be reallly potent mushies tho... kinda like the PE's are deformed but have a nice kick to them. is that an isolate or multispore? if it's multispore, your best bet might be to isolate a normal lookin shroom and go from there. :)

The mushrooms in the first pic indeed have Verticillium.

Not once the mushrooms are dry, then the fungus dies off. Verticillium has been linked to causing cornea and uterus infections. There's been little study on the fungus and health effects of it up to today.


You definately will not see a fresh Shiitake mushroom or any other stocked on a stores shelf with the infection.

ive been working with the ksss and they are truly odd, bout one out of 5 cakes turns out completely different, like a hundred shrooms on one half pint cake, all real skinny and small, but densely packed on the cake, the rest of the cakes will be like the ones u showed. odd, wish i had a pic....
