I ordered some ready made cakes a while back, and all that they seem to be made with is fine grain vermiculite. well ever since they started to pin the mushrooms have been extremely small. could this be from the vermiculite that was with no brown rice flour?

well if they are pinning then they have nutes from some where... and really you cant really see the brown rice flour after it has been mixed with the verm

It sounds more like a grow space problem... what type setup do you have? How often are you fanning? whats the humidity? etc..etc...
and how long has it been in the pinning stage?

that needs to be up to 99% for cakes.. its better for cakes to have 99/100 % humidity and casings to have 85-95% humidity
but being at 90% humidity I wouldnt see how that would make the mushies open to early

He said they wouldnt grow in verm, you said they did grow. How much BRF is a question. I also doubt you dunked and rolled your cakes. They were probably dry as hell from the colonization period.
