    Sounds strange... Haven't seen shrooms expell before, Monitor it this afternoon, if it doesn't open up, Then I might be dying, but dont quote me... shrooms can be quiet hardy..

    P.s where about in Durban are you?

    I noticed from my green mushrooms that they expell a white slim if they get stressed (e.g. if I move my hand to close to them) but the next day they are all fine again and just get bigger and stronger. Never seen them expell a brown slim.
