Mushroom strain selection: want small mushrooms
    #3800738 - 02/18/05 10:48 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I understand that many people want big mushrooms, but I'd prefer small mushrooms. I want em small cause my growing area is very tiny, about 7 inches high total. i figure that my pan will take up about 3 inches of that...so I'm looking for mushrooms about 4 inches in height.

Any small strains that I should look into?

mazatapec and cambodians grow on the smaller side.also you can case them but just make a very thin substrate layer,instead spreading it out for more surface area,but less thickness.this will produce alot of smaller shrooms.

im not saying all are small,nor are they all big.ive fgrown them many times from many sources and all i mean is compared to others on average they tend to be smaller than alot of strains.i didnt say they were only an inch or 2,mine averaged about 5 inches or so,but compared to alot of strains 5 inches isnt the biggest.
also as i said it really depends on other factors for example the depth of tthe suubstrate  layer.a casing with a 4 inch substrate layer of Mazatapec myceluim is going to grow biggger fruits than a casing with a 1 inch substrate layer of mazatapec myceluim.

BTW ive had EQs 12+ inches high with caps 6+ inches accross,you must have had bad EQs. :wink:

There are 3 strains of Cambodians.
John Allen says he brought back 3 different strains from Cambodia.

I have 2 of them...for sure.

One strain is very small.

One strain is large.

The 3rd strain might be the Creeper.

Messing up and not reading enough here (!!) I cased a quart of rye with about an inch thick substrate, and a half inch -> inch of casing on top. It's not got the greatest pinset, but every shroom that I've picked (the early blooming ones so far) has been under 6 inches in length.

You can for sure find a way to make those shrooms however you want them :smile:

I believe the strain you are looking for is tasmanian, it's an aussie strain:

The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride... And we... kill those people.

I would suggest Texas Goliad.

Here is a sheet of Texas goliad next to 1 Cambodian being printed. (This was a big Cambodian most were the same size as Z-strain)



and here is a sheet of Z-Strain prints



As you can see the Texas goliad strain was small but plentiful.

depends on how you grow it, i've grown tons of strains, tons of different sizes, but i guess some strands could be a tidbit smaller

i would say koh samui, they get some really uniform pinsets when cased. I would also say they produce lots of little shrooms spread out over a large space, instead of just getting a few monster size zoomers from your casing.my 2 C

Z-Strain does drop a lot of spores. The pic was to show numbers per sheet. Every cap prints differently.

For Example:

The Cambodian Print



A Z-strain print



Malabar on left and B+ on right



Here is an average size Ps. Mexicana next to a smaller Z-Strain print



Each print is different with different amounts of spores and different sizes. Each grow is different as well.

On average I would say that if the cubensis strains, Texas Goliad was the smallest in both height and diameter of cap.
