plz clear up shroom size Q
    #4175772 - 05/14/05 08:24 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

ive heard, among other factors, that substrate depth and/or casing depth greatly determine the size of the mushrooms. which has a greater effect, or do they both contribute equally?

They both contribute a lot. A deep substrate will give you more nutrients for the shrooms to grow, but shrooms are 90%=92% water so you are going to need a good casing layer to supply all this moisture.

Optimal spawn & ratio, substrate (nutriants), strain, substrate depth & moisture content, substrate container, type casing mixture & moisture retention/distribution capacity of the casing mix, ph, incubation / fruiting temps, fresh air exchange, rh & light cycle.

In other words, optimal everything will get you optimal size fruit & flushes.
