In one of my grows, the first mature mushroom had a veil which broke really early. It's not just a case of the mushroom maturing when it was small. Instead of the veil stretching and breaking as the mushroom grew, the veil was never really well attached to the top. The cap stayed curved and the mushroom quadrupled in size after the veil broke. The skirt is now about 1/4 the way up the stem, so, very low down. Now, I can tell from the shape of the cap that it is ready to harvest. The thing is, I think the same thing is happening to another mushroom in the same grow. So my question is, is there something (humidity, genetics, etc.) that can cause the veil to break before maturity? The grow in question is the one discussed here: https://mycotopia.ne...uld-i-do/page-2
