ok i have a cassing of cakes in a tin a bunch of cakes covered with moist verm i also have a casing of dung now both are golden teacher spores how come the cassing in dung can produce 100 times larger fruits and the cakes not the cakes produce more of a flush but only get to be small on the other hand the dung has fewer mushrooms but lot bigger there the same strain shouldnt they grow by genetic guide lines

ok srry in easier terms y if you have the same strain same mushrooms 1 in cake cassing and 1 in dung cassing y dont they grow the same? the cake cassing produces a bunch of small shrooms and the dung produces a few large ones shouldnt the mushroom grow by the same guide lines the goldent teacher are know to get real big but y arent they the same size same girth etc.. in diff subtrates

they will grow in according to available nutrients/water. the dung has more nutrients key to the mushroom fruit thus they will have alot larger fruits on dung and bigger subsequent flushes too.
even pinning and surface area also play a role in fruit production as well.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

dung gives it more nutrients than a straight casing.

Poo gives you more nutrients so the mushrooms grow larger.

the reason im asking is from spawn to birth is where i have alot of my problems say like 1 out of 5 cassings make it the rest either get contamed or the colonization slows probly cause of not enough water but either way i have faild tons and tons of times and the extra wait for a failed cassing is also hurting me but yet i know the dung is good cause the ones that make it are usually really impressive.
