a substrate depth deeper then 2" is pointless, spread it out and youll have more fruiting surface area, and more fruits.

I wouldn't say it is pointless. I find that I get larger fruits when I make my substrate deeper.

larger fruits doesnt mean larger all together yeild, what i said is not my own finding, nan of nans nook did extinsive study himself and spreading out yur shit whatever yur casing in 2" deep casings produce more mushrooms by weight then say a fat ass 6 inch casing.

I believe you, but I don't usually go for a lot of total weight (I already have plenty of mushrooms). Lately I have ben trying to produce some big nice looking mushrooms for printing etc.

A 2 inch casing will tend to dry out faster than a 6 inch one....

Being thicker should also provide you with more nutrients for later flushes.

Compare 50 x 30(wet grams ) mushrooms.... to 50 x 40 gram mushrooms.

I have found a thicker casing to produce longer and fatter stems, all around bigger mushrooms.

Personal best was 84 wet grams, from a 5 inch deep, by 14x10 inch wide casing.

I had a 81 gram mushroom once. Grew in my trash (literally) from a contaminated casing I threw out.

I didn't bother drying my big shroom. It grew in my trash. I won't eat it.

Anno has left the Shroomery.  :frown:
Hopefully he will come back some day.

I disagree with you.

If you had a casing that was 2 feet square and it had 2" of substrate...it wouldn't produce anywhere near the same amount of mushrooms that the same size container would with more substrate....example 4" to 6".
Same size container...with the same area...with more substrate will produce bigger and more mushrooms without a doubt...IME

Sorry!
