Super small shrooms off casing need help.
    #1356491 - 03/07/03 07:41 AM (14 years, 25 days ago)

A friend of a friend made a 50/50 casing with verm, peat moss, and crushed oyster shell. Everything was going well or so he thought .The pins were looking good at first but now he is noticing that something is terribly wrong. The shrooms growing off it are smaller then tooth pics and most are not growing much at all. He just misted the casing good with a h20/h202 mix. He has been fanning it 3-4 times a day and cannot figure out what is going wrong it does not appear to be contaminated either. Here is a pic of some of the shrooms any ideas would be helpful.

i just read another one of your posts and u said you used the SoS tek. DON'T USE THAT TEK. it is the biggest piece of shit. turn a bunch of cakes into tiny masses of mycelium with a little verm on top. great way to make sure you get tiny unpotent shrooms

Do small mushrooms are less potent?

the lack of substrate supporting the fruit body would be less so less nutrients getting to the mushroom so less psilocybin produced?

Well, I tried it.

And the result was: The less substrate used, the smaller the mushrooms.

But the potency didn?t change at all, regardless how much or how little substrate was used in a container.

I did not use the sos tek for this casing I cased a half pint cake in a bread pan with 50/50 verm, peat moss, and crushed oyster shell. I only did about a 1/2 inch casing layer maybe a little less. Im not sure of the exact RH but I mist the bag its in daily as well as fan it. BTW the one sos tek cup that I did with less then a half of cake is spitting out nice mushrooms....

This has been my experience also.

Next time try 3 or 4 1/2 pint cakes.

I think that is your whole problem. The less spawn you use, the smaller you mushrooms will be. Try the same casing procedure woth more cakes, ans I can almost guarantee you will get larger fruits.
