Low Humidty = Smaller Shrooms?
    #3012757 - 08/17/04 11:45 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I had a friend who had a cake that became contammed. She picked the shrooms (but didn't eat them) before the contam spread so she could look at them (they're beautiful!). However, unlike the pictures she has seen from other grows, the fruits were pretty small. They looked, size wise, like liberty caps (very thin stems and small caps with veils broken). Sometime recently, she discovered that there were 8 holes in her terrarium that came with the container. This in turn could have caused a lower humidity. Could this be the culprit for the small shrooms, or is it the contam? And after the veil breaks on a shroom, can it grow more (if she had left the shrooms on the cake, would they have grown to have thicker stems and larger caps)?

Sounds a bit like it could be a contam species to me, it the stems are as thin as liderty caps. i've had such contams in the past.

though low humiderty can also create smaller shrooms, they
still pretty much look just like there bigger counterparts, only
smaller.

A picwould really help here.

That's what the stems looked like.  The contam was right next to the growth of shrooms.  But my friend said that her other cake has a few shrooms growing on it, and another one should start pinning soon (it has lots of hyphal knots and was birthed almost a week ago).  I hope for her sake it was the contam or humidity, cause she told me she taped up the holes.  Let's hope for her success!  :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

Those in that pic, printed white, so i removed the contaminated
cake fast, as the thin contam shrooms sporated very quickly.
and were a risk to other nearby casings.

They were as tall as the half pint cake, growing from the bottom. Will the caps and stem continue to grow after the veil breaks, or is that pretty much the end of growth?

i just recently (today) had all my mushrooms stop and break veil, because i stopped the humidity inside the terrarium (i did casing, at 20% humidity roughly...) and when i lowered the humidity to 20%, (was at 95%) all the mushrooms broke veil and stopped growing, so im POSITIVE its humidity that mine are small, cuz i kept up humidity and got 2 big ones, and the rest are small after i dropped humidity, just some info for ya ...

So she told me she's been spraying a lot every day, and fanning whenever she does that, but her biggest shroom is starting to break its veil, and it's only a little thicker and bigger than the ones from the contammed cake. Is there something wrong with spraying and other environmental conditions, or do you think it's the strain
