Would minimal diffuse lighting keep caps from opening?

A friend has several trays going and have harvested over 300g wet. The problem is only 2 of the fruits have barely opened. My guess is that there is no relatively strong directional light to cue the shroom which direction to grow or to open the cap. Does that sound right?

No. They don't need light to mature.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson
