How can I make my shrooms bigger?
    #3967961 - 03/25/05 11:06 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey again everyone,

I'm still on straight PF/MMGG tek w/ 9 1/2 pints. Their doing great some on 1st flush some on 2nd. But I was wondering, why are some of my shrooms smaller now, even on the first flushing ones?

How can I make them bigger?

Does CO2/O2 have anything to do with it? Suggestions?

Peace and shrooms,

Z

Yeah, that doesn't answer my question though!!! I wanted to know what affects the physical size of the mushrooms, as well as the size of the flush while using PF/MMGG. Anyone?

Lack of air exchange can definately discourage growth potential.  However, compared to other methods of growing (casing, bulk), cakes usually produce smaller fruit, in general.  Also, size also has some to do with what strain you are cultivating.  Hope I helped ya out.  :smile:

Brazillian Strain [Re: SixCee]
    #3968046 - 03/25/05 11:40 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

In that case, anyone used Brazillian strain before? What were your fruits like? Is it strange that I can get lots of tiny shrooms on some cakes and like 1 fucking huge 20g wet shroom?

Not at all. It isn't uncommon to have several smaller fruits on a cake and one large one on another cake. I've never cultivated Brazilian.

The amount of nuetrients and the depth of the substrate (up to about 4-6 inches) in your casing determines the average size of your shrooms.  Thats why they said look at the bulk cause its alot of nutrients and deep casings.  If you want the biggest shrooms go with horse  :poop: and read up on the bulk teks.  :mushroomgrow:

Alright... sounds good. Can I use some cakes that have flushed once or twice to case?

I'm a beginner but feeling like a casing would be fun and increase yield.

Or are the nutrients in the cakes too little?

I'll look into crap techniques and next time I grow I'm thinking Golden teacher or B+ cause lotso peeps seem to like them... anyone know why?

You may be able to get a lil extra out of your cakes. But it isn't worth the trouble at this point IMO.

Is that cause of low nutrients?

If I use horsepoo wouldn't that re-nutriate enough to make it worthit to case some cakes that have already flushed?

And why horse versus cow shit?

Yes, you can colonize with your current cakes - BUT remember this is a living organism, and you'll be taking one that's already gone a long way through its life cycle and asking it to do the same as others are doing with young, vigorous mycelium right out of spawn jars.
