growing large shrooms
    #3600607 - 01/08/05 11:27 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Ive noticed I always get some smaller shrooms and then some monsters......why is that? AND HOW CAN i GET THEM TO FRUIT BETTER.....COULD IT BE TEMP AND HUMIDITY OR IS IT JUST IN THE STRAIN?

it actually has alot to do with both what substrate and the substrate depth more than anything i have used 2 inch substrate for most of my casings and i get medium sized fruits. But i am now going to use 5 inch of straw poo spawned with WBS so im expecting much bigger fruits

but yes it also has to do with strain and somewhat humidity and temp mostly strain and depth though

nutrition is key to big fruits. that and strain. there are some larger ones. B+, Orissa Indai, etc.

i agree. good nutrition and strain are key, as well as good air exchange and correct moisture... but that's without saying. :smile:

EQ, GT, B+.....&......4 & 5 inch deep compost or horse manure/straw , well cased substrates, under optimal conditions will get you honking big boys. 2nd & 3rd flushes get you even bigger ones, simply because you generally have fewer pins & the myc can pour everything in a fewer number.

<----- Blue Meanie cubies put out some monsters.

If you want consistently bigger mushrooms, try cloning.
