My mushrooms are too heavy and they're falling over and shit

Hey dudes

Soooo... I noticed something which kinda bugs me and I want to rectify this so it don't happen no more. Towards the end flushes I get, usually the fourth, fifth and sixth, I notice that my shrooms get meatier, heavier and bigger than their successive generations. Now, the shrooms get heavier but the casing however becomes more weak. Most of my shrooms grow pretty big, then fall over under there own weight before their veil breaks. Grrrr... How can I improve/prevent this from happening?

My usual casing mixture contains 48% Peat Moss, 48% Vermiculate and about 4% crushed oyster shell.

Any help would be sweet.

great problem to have!

there isn't really any obvious solution, just enjoy them being too heavy to stand up. mine get bigger, but their stems are usually stronger too, so they can take the weight. maybe your casing mixture needs a little extra firewater in it!

You can try making the casing layer a little deeper next time.

stick little toothpicks into the casing layer and prop them up like drunk sailors.
