Stumpy Mushrooms
    #1970705 - 10/01/03 10:26 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

The substrate is spread out on mesh in the form of a pie pan. I alternate sitting them on perlite, depending if they are fruiting. I keep getting stumpy mushrooms. They are about 1 inch tall and one inch wide, give or take a half inch. I was just curious why they do this, cause i haven't given them any caffeine at all, so that can't be the cause of there lack of height. I also know they are not aborts because they still tear back there veils, or at least try to but there too fat and stumpy. Does it have something to do with temperature, humidity, or am i not showing them the necessary love? please help me

This is just a guess, because I'm a newbie. :tongue:

Fat asses are caused by light being directed at the shroom from many different angles instead of just one. A bright light from above, the white perlite reflection, and possibly white walls on the teraium. All of this will give the shroom light comming from all over the place instead of just strait up above the cake/casing like it should be.

Yes, no, maybe..... :crazy:

Fat asses are not "light being directed at the shroom from many different angles instead of just one"
