Big Shrooms
    #24732144 - 10/23/17 07:10 PM (3 years, 6 months ago)

My monotub has just finished it's second flush. All is well except the shrooms coming out of it are averaging 9 inches tall... What's up with that? 

It's seems we've established that smaller shrooms are more potent... and I'm the tiniest bit concerned about potency with these.

Just genetics? Are they growing so tall because they're lacking something like fresh air or a closer source of light?? Does size really matter?? :rofl:



Thanks everyone!

They will probably be fine. Bigger fruits can kick just fine.

Pick them with the veil still attached next time. That's what I try to do when I have huge fruits. Some times I don't catch them in time though. Huge shrooms are cool and all, but I enjoy closed caps personally. (No specific reason)

Nice Shrooms ya got there!  I wouldn't worry about the size/potency if that was the case no one would mess with PE's. In my opinion there all Equal Small/Big.

These are from multispore to agar that was transferred 3 times.  This is the first time the culture has been grown out.

I plan to do at least one more tub with the same spawn (master grain jar) that I used for his tub. I guess I can expect similar results?

I won't knock them till I try them. It's just weird when an 1/8 of shrooms is like only a single shroom. Hahaha.

All in all its not preferable IMO or IME when it comes to what others seem to like and look for. I guess I can always try to pick out some different genetics next time around if I don't like them. Lol.

P.S.  Even with my past grows, cakes or shoeboxes, I tend to get some fairly large mushrooms.  Members of the shroomery always urged me to clone them.. But what's the point of cloning giant fruits just to get more giant fruits...?  Why do people get so excited about large shrooms? Is it just because it's mostly uncommon? It just seems that there are no benfits to giant fruits unless your only aiming for weight. And I'd take quality over quantity any day of the week.

I don't understand why you're so against large fruits. :shrug:

It is far easier to pick a tub full of big shrooms over a tub full of small ones that are only a couple inches tall.

I've just never heard anything good about large fruits.. it's kewl when you have one monster in a tub or per flush, but when every flush is almost nothing but huge, foot tall shrooms, it makes me worry that these flushes potency could be effected enough to notice.  And maybe those are genetics I shouldn't be pursuing.

Totally agree with you.  I think they look better dried too.  I'll just have to try them and see how they do.. which is the worst part of the job, right?:awecid:
