my friend called me today and said that his shrooms look kinda small. he said that a few of them look almost ready to harvest (veil close to breaking), but they are only about 3-3 1/2 inches tall with a 3/4-1 inch cap. they are the B+ strin. any ideas?

That happens. It's not quite as common with the B+ strain, but sometimes a big flush yields lots of tiny mushrooms, especially if the substrate isn't really deep.

The only real way to prevent this completely is to switch to a bulk substrate like straw and use substrate depths like 4" - 6". Casing grain of this depth is a waste, unless you have lots of colonized grain to spare.
