I've been watching my mycelium spread through my mycobag for about a month now and am puzzled by the results. At first, there was a spot of mycelium growing on the top of my substrate and some growing on the side. I tried my best to shake it in the mycobag without breaking the bag or being too violent a couple times, but the mycelium just grew in the same spots reguardless. I figured I'd just let it sit and now it looks like all but the bottom 1/5th or so of the substrate is fully colonized. I know it will probably fully colonize still, but was wondering: If certain parts of the substrate are colonized quicker than others, when it is time to fruit, will there be less nutrients available for fruiting and lead to smaller or in any way lesser quality mushrooms?
