It depends on the mushroom. Some species, like Oyster Mushrooms (Pluerotus) require a good deal of fresh air exchange to develop normally. Our site, and a few others, mainly picture MycoBag(TM) products producing various types of Pluerotus, whether it's the Gold, Pink, Phoenix, Blue, or Pearl.

These are grown by simply poking a few holes in the bag after full colonization around the level of the substrate. The primordia form in small cluster groups from which the fresh mushroom clusters mature and grow outward where fresh air is available.

This is probably a representation of what you are talkign about (notice it's growing out of the mycobag which can be seen in the right portion of the picture):



There are a good number of species of mushrooms that will produce to maturity without any difficulty inside the MycoBag(TM) products withough poking holes or opening it up. These species work with a lot less fresh air exchange than many traditional edibles and medicinals. However, just about all mushroom species (other than say enoki) benefit from increased air exchange and will grow larger and more prolifically if allowed to produce in an "unrestrictive" environment. For this reason many people will remove the fully colonized substrate block from their MycoBag(TM) and allow it to fruit unrestricted in a larger humidity chamber for better results.

REISHI'S, Although this might not be the 'best' tek for best quantity......It still works well if more than one bag is fruiting at a time.
