cover the sides of the fish tank with black construction paper, and make sure you've got light inside the tank, coming from above. then your shrooms will grow upward.

hmmm... i can almost bet you spray, dont you? and if you do i can almost bet you dont have a drip shield, huh? just going off of a gues but i think you spray with something that lets out big drops an dit hits the mushies and they abort. try spraying about 2 feet above the fruiting chamber. if im wrong im sorry. but please let me know either way.

Sounds like your problems have already been answered by the previous posters.

First, the white styrofoam is reflecting the light that comes in from the top of the chamber and is one reason your mushies are growing from the sides. So, cover the glass with black construction paper or some other suitable material, just as Willchair suggested.

Secondly, your RH is too low for cakes. The humidity at the bottom of your chamber is always higher than at the top. this is due to the fact that vaporized water particles are heavier than air and tend to settle near the bottom of the chamber. Your mushies growing on top are in an unsuitable fruiting environment due to this. Use perlite. It's cheap and easy.

GL, with your grow xxduffxx :wink:
