Midget shrooms--WTF?!
    #4034046 - 04/09/05 01:32 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I went to check on things this morning, and noticed that the veil had broken on like 1/3 of these mushrooms, and the very tallest one is probably less than 2"! (and these are supposed to be from the Amazon) The veil breaking is a sign of maturity, no? This my first time with this strain. Last time I cased, I followed the exact same procedure as now (nine 1/2 pint PF jars cased with 50/50+), and I had fantastic results.

What the heck's going on here? I feel like I'm in the goddamn merry old land of Oz!


Is this just one of those things that happens from time to time when you get some bum spores?

I'm working with some Amazonians right now. The tallest shrooms I've gotten so far were 3.5", most of them were real tiny though. But I am completely new to growing. This has only been my second flush on my first successful casing, and I didn't make my substrate layer deep at all! I'm pretty sure this is why mine turned out so small, because my friend used to grow amazonians and he had some massive shrooms!

But you amazonians look way different than mine...

And what is your substrate depth?

Substrate depth is a little less than 1 1/2"

Then I'd have to say that's the problem. 2 inches is the minimum I prefer to use, generally I go 4+.

Also, moisture content of the substrate. BRF is great stuff for casing, but once it loses H20 it's game over, and the crop suffers.
