i been wondering for a lil while now dose the depth of your substrate affect the tallness or size of your shrooms.
i was thinking of getting a reg. plastic garbage can and colonizing 3/4 the way up it would this bring on monster shrooms or a waste of time

to a point. i think that point is something about 6 inches for grains and a foot for bulk substrates.

so 3/4 the way up it is a lil bit over board n a waste or is it worth trying it

or....what U think bout doing this would it work?

take a garabge can and almost fill it with substrate (3ft), when comes time to birth it do 3 flushes out of each ft of substrate like after you get 3 flushes of shrooms you peel out 1 ft of substrate then throw a casing layer on it would that section of substrate start growing like as it you just birthed it all over.?
srry bout the grammer befor

nah, you're just going to have mycelium under there eating nutrient and squirting out wastes. do it a foot at a time.

after about 3-4" you reach a point of diminishing returns .
mycelium below 6" of substrate would probably suffocate .
with the exception of, straw logs and laundry baskets, because they get air from all sides .
