Jumbo wine caps
    #11414263 - 11/08/09 11:05 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

What makes wine caps grow to jubo size? Genetics ,substrate? Most of the ones i have found around my job have been portabella sized. Then the last few weeks in an area across the parking lot from the other patch there have been jumbos! The other patches never got to this size. I cloned a few jumbos a few weeks ago and took a print and put the stem butt on cardboard from this one. Anyone have any other jumbo pix?

Jumbo size?  I would say there are a few factors involved:

1. Genetics.
2. Nitrogen content of the substrate.
3. Moisture content of substrate.
4. Relative humidity.
5. Mycelial mass.  I think this is the biggest factor here!

I'm guessing, really. :grin:

Lots of food and good growing conditions lead to large mycelial mass and the possibility of large fruits.  Limited suitable fruiting area, such as in heavily planted garden beds can lead to very large fruits when the mycelium has only limited choices where to fruit.

While a typical shaggy parasol in my area is only 3 to 4" in diameter when it is fully open, one bed that is heavily planted  and also subsidized with leaf mould (shaggy food) grows whopping caps 11 to 13" across.

The excellence of the growth environment combined with limited fruiting space leads to big fruits.

On the "other side"  people are always thrilled with whopping big fruits, but are also thrilled with massive numbers of pins forming.  This is strange because many pins leads to many small mushrooms.

I never do anything to encourage pinning, so I have usually got (fewer) really large mushrooms.

I figure if the mycelium can make a pound of fruit, it will make a pound.  WHether that's one huge mushroom, or many small ones depends on the pin set.

I am my own lab rat.

Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will remember.  Involve me and I will learn.
