So my mother jawbreaker has been dropping lots of babies, and one of them has stripes on it. It's in the center of the photo below, with whitish stripes radiating from the mouth. The only other mushrooms I have are some interstellar shrooms that are not near these, and I've watched the mother drop all of these babies over the last couple of months, so I'm sure it's from the mother jawbreaker. It's not quite as bright as the other babies next to it, but still fluoresces under atinics. The mushrooms in the photo are all pretty small still, less than 1/2" in diameter. I first noticed it maybe a month ago, and the stripes have been getting more pronounced as the mushroom has gotten bigger. There are about 6 or 7 other babies on the rock, and they all look like normal jawbreakers. Has anyone seen this before?

My jawbreaker came as a baby with with streaks like that. As it got more lighting they turned orange.

The person I bought it from said the ones that were white like that usually got very good coloring, which turned out to be true in my case.

Beautiful mushroom! And thank you for the info. Hopefully mine turns out like that, too.
