Small Mushrooms ?
    #2987554 - 08/10/04 07:49 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Why are all of my B+ mushrooms SO small ???
They're growing from cakes, dunked, fully colonized on vermiculite, and the humidity is high. They are in a big see through translucent rubbermaid case.
What do you do to get your shrooms bigger?
Why are mine only growing 3-5" 's?

It's very plausible to end up with big fucking mushies from cakes. Albeit alot of factors matter. I.e. quality of ingredients, temp, RH.... but imo air exchange is one of the most common reasons for small mushies. How are you provding air? Fanning? Pump? Try increasing the amount and you may end up with better yields. If you are already providing enough air, you may want to consider where you got your spores from. Genetics also play a huge part. If you got them from a reputable site, then you're prob okay though. BTW, 3-5" isn't that damn small.

My first grow I got tiny mushrooms from my first flush . I grew EQ's on cakes . Temp was kept in the high 70's and humidity was close to 100% , I also dunked for 16 hours and then rolled in verm .

None of the mushies were more than 4 inches and the caps were about the size of the dime . It was very dissapointing , but then on the second flush they were huge . Right now , I'm about to harvset my first flush from my second grow and this time around they are all average size .

Well, when they dry out, they are tiny... and I mean tiny.
They turn into lil twigs and the caps are still decent sized, but the stems are very, very, small.  :thumbdown:

Fresh cubensis are aprox 90/92% water, so when drying out you can expect to lose that much. Drying dosen't effect the potency (if done correctly) of the mushrooms, so you don't have to eat as much dry (per weight) than you would fresh. So in the end it dosen't really matter :laugh:

:goodluck:
