A lot of my little guys are growing straight out from the cakes and bumping into other cakes or the terrarium wall. will they find their way up or should I keep moving them around? The cakes have about an inch and a half of space around them. There's a low wattage bulb a couple of feet directly above the terrarium.

You are not using enough light. Try using more hours.

I give them 12 hours a day, do they need more?

sometimes they don't find their way up. sometimes they do. the best thing i've heard you can do is have the light come from above... but i don't light mine from above anymore, i light from the side and don't really have a problem with crazy shroomies.

if you do move them, touch the cakes as little as possible, or even use what they're sitting on (jar lid, maybe?) to adjust them... you just don't want to damage the cake.

can you move the light bulb any closer to the terrarium? that might help make the light stronger.

12 hours is enough, and should direct them up.

Try lowering the bulb closer to the terrarium.
