    Hi guys,

    I got this mushroom on the weekend. Every thing seems ok with it, but today I look and one of the leaves has been covered by what looks like cotten wool or something. Maybe the pictures will be alittle clearer.

    If anyone can explain why this is happening and what i can do or should i just leave it.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I have seen it happen for no reason too.
    It could be that the one that died got damaged in transit???
    Like Lanzo said the others look in great shape.

    Nice purchase there, I love those green and purple yumas, in my experience they are hardy and grow quite big.
    They spread on their own quite quickly and recover fast after fragging.

    i can confirm, one of my mushrooms also died, I had it now for about 8 months, dont know if their life time is so long, but it was good to have the chap in my tank, I can clearly see 4 babies ones beside it ... :)
