Short and Fat Mushies
    #1364823 - 03/11/03 06:16 AM (14 years, 17 days ago)

Mysterious Dr. X is quite pleased with his mushie growth, but the vast majority of his mushies are short, and so fat that the cap is about as wide the mushie. He knows that too high humidity can cause this, plus the strain, Matias Romero doesn't look in full-grown pics to be that tall and thin. Still, he was wondering if anyone has any idea on how to correct this....

EDIT: He's also concerned that drying them might take much longer due to their girth. Also, why are his mushies turning blue when he's barely handling them? Could it be the fan he uses to pre-dry them?

Do you fan often to circulate air and get rid of C02? That could explain the disproportion of your mush. As for blueing some strain get easily bruised when manipulated, you don't need to worry about that.

Yes, fan and watch the humidity level in the terraium and the blueing occurs as a result of touching the shrooms.

The girth will have no effects while drying, instead of 2 days, it might take 2.5 days :P

The first strain that my friend grew was MR, and some of his cakes were sitting directly on wet perlite. Those cakes grew some monstrous fat ass water balloon fruits. And yes, they took longer to dry.
