Its the strain. Brazils are a hollow shroom... Try GT's, Z's or Hawaiians for some solid mushrooms.

"sadly doing it by weight actually hollow stems hurt you "

How does hollow stems hurt the pusher? As a "pusher" hollow stems would make the bags look bigger and people could easily think 2.5 grams is 3.5.

B+ are also known for hollow stems. I've seen 9-10" b+ mushrooms that dry cracker dry to about a gram because of the hollow stems.

Not to hijack the thread but I have a question no one can seem to answer for me... I split the stem of a fresh texan cube, and I noticed a hollow stem too, but at the very bottom of the stem there was a soft white solid substance at the bottom 1/4" of the stem or so, but it wasn't throughout. What's this white stuff at the bottom of the stem - normal?

id- it is more than likely just mycelium from high humidity.

Yes, it is mycelium that you are seeing at the bottom of the stems. Even the hollow b+ i've seen had this.

Hollow stems dry very skinny for the most part :wink:
