Help, my mushrooms are bigger then their chamber....
    #2875692 - 07/10/04 12:43 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I bought a kit and it came with one of those foil containers with a clear plastic top, so now my mushrooms are growing really huge! I spawned with straw but they are too big for the container....I cut a hole out of the top of the plastic lid so they have room to grow but I dont have anything or cant think of anything to put over it so that they can grow free.....any ideas???

Maybe you could get a clear plastic bin, put some damp perlite in the bottom and put your whole kit into it and fan a couple times per day. This sounds like a good problem to have!

I tried the plastic bag but it flops over and rests on the mushrooms heads so I put them in a foam kooler I forgot I had! Problem solved!

They will bend and continue to grow.

funkys right and wrong ... but moisture collects on the roof, and thats always a possible place for contamns... best to let them grow free of other objects funky... glad you solved your problem robotic...

Just cut them man. It seems like you have yourself a good kit and they will keep growing, more likely to have more the sooner you cut them, plus the factor that they are more potent. Even if the veil isn't showing much, you can cut them. It'll bruise quite a bit, so better off eating them fresh too.

To be honest, you have absolutely nothing to complain about.

Cutting them before the veil breaks is not a good idea. Trust me when I say that the potency will not lessen, especially well before the veil breaks. If you're going to cut them early, at least wait until the veil breaks.
