    Anyone ran into this fruit eating fungus. I would just like to hear if anyone has and their experience with dealing with it. Its sad to see a healthy flush rot before your eyes:fry1:

    if you had trays by the ones that were contaminated that have not started pinning, are they in danger once the contaminated trays are romoved and area cleaned? From my understanding it eats only fruitbodies when humidity is high and FAE low

    Now that I know what this is, come to think of it, I have ALWAYS had vert and yes I have always misted. First flushes are always full of wierd and odd shaped fruits and tons of aborts. I thought this was just genetics but no, its disease. Second flushes always have come out worlds better than the first, huge healthy gorgeous fruits almost all around. Im guessing this is due to the substrate drying and the fungus being kept at bay. So this is something than can be controlled by dropping RH and raising FAE? I doubled my fans cycle time in my chin high greenhouse from 1 min every 30 min to 2 min every 30 min and dropped my humidifier from 1 min every 5 min to 1min every 15 min. I also lowered temps a few degress. I bought a better digitial RH gauge and have the RH at 92% when it drops to 85% is about when the humidifier kicks on bringing it to about 91-92% again. This setup was producing the most massive pinset on three trays I have EVER had, but of course RH was too high, water condensed on the rack above and dripped onto the trays below. I didnt catch this till there was a layer pooled in every tray. The one tray with hundreds of premys immediately signaled for the caps to open early and the other two trays full of pins quickly began to deform and abort. I got and ok flush off each one in the couple days following but almost simultaeneously the VERT popped up, killing alot of the flush and the flush coming in behind it, which had already formed another fat pin set. Best grow yet, the best of it ate by another fungus, lol ooooof course
