In situations like this I would say its a lighting issue. Although mushrooms dont need light specifically, except to initiate pinning, when they are exposed to very dark enviornments, they have a tendancy to grow tall and thin. If you turn the light on for a good 8-12 hours they will generally grow shorter and fatter. This is in my experience and based on the advice of others.

I could very well be wrong. But consider it if it applies to your grow.

Yeah thanks man. I've been doing 12 on 12 off. My light is a 25 watt florecent strip light. I have it shining down from the top of my closet and my terranium is sitting on the floor. should I get my light closer. It seems pretty bright.

I have a 20 watt flourescent attatched right to my lid of my pmp. I havent had any problems with it so far. I dont see why it would be a problem putting it closer...but maybe if they arent getting enough light you could move it down a little.

Lemme know how it goes.
