Small Shrooms
    #3359991 - 11/14/04 03:07 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I am using the pf tek and am in the fruiting stage using a 50/50 peat moss/verm casing. Everything pinned real nice and there are lots of mushrooms but they are maturing very soon, averaging at about 6 cm tall with caps 3.5cm in diameter. Why are they so small?

Yup, thicker the better but too thick is just w waste, say 6in , 4's probably good, maybe a bit over doing it but experiment with it and see what u like best, GL

Anything above 2" is not necessary. The reason why you have small mushrooms are probably because you have a lot of them. Yield and speedwise, smaller mushrooms are better than larger ones. I wouldn't worry about it. Your second flush will be bulkier so sure.

Good luck

Thought I'd check if I had any old posts on here and it turns out I do! Moved on to green cultivation for the last few years, thought I'd give this a shot again with some of the lessons I learned in that field (as well as better funding) - not going to end up with small shrooms this time :tongue:.

I'm trying out the Golden Mammoth strain on rye. Anyone tried this strain before?
