Best way is to leave it outside for an hour or two. Also, make sure there is a small fan to aid air circulation around it.

Pleurotus and Ganoderma borth exhibit odd growth structures when the CO2 content is too high in an enclosed space. Inside space bags, for inatance.

If the weather is mild and humid (or even rainy) in your area, consider leaving it outside. The spores will do a number on your lungs. (They can even grow there.)

Thank you Britney

it should be that for certain. In that case, what’s the better way to do it? Put it outside for few hours?

“aid exchanges”?. Please explain :)

Some friend of mine which works on this, told me to cut this formation and let it grow again. I did it in all other holes (of the plastic) and left this one to see what happens.

suggests too much CO2. Needs aid exchanges.
