casing and small shrooms
    #1253021 - 01/27/03 12:01 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Two questions.
The mushrooms off of my cakes are only 1/2 inch to 1 inch and the veil has broke on a few. They just all look pretty small. Is this normal. I had christmas lights resting on the top to raise the heat to 75 and I think they might have dried the cakes out a bit becasue they have blued some. Could this be a factor?
Also I have seen pictures of people who have grown mushrooms right out of the tupperware containers used to house cakes and making a casing out of the whole container. How many cakes is that for a ten gallon conatiner. I know you want about an inch 1/2 to 2 inches substrate.

i can only answer your last wuestion. you want more than 2 inches of subtrate. optimum is closer to 8 inches. you'll ahve even more small shrooms if you only use 2 inches of substrate =(

Maybe I missed what your saying, but 8 inches is way to much in my opinion... even at 2 inches I'd consider that on the thick side. My verm casings have been about an inch at the bottom and an inch at the top.
