Hi and welcome. How much substrate (depth) are you using per container? Also, what is your casing mix? Those look a bit overlayed to me, as in you let the casing layer colonize a bit much. Otherwise, congrats on the shrooms you have there.

hey everyone thanks for the replys..

the strain i used was  psilocybe cubensis.

as for the overlay, i tired to use as much top soil as the amount of mycelium i used..i may have over killed that a little :wink:

as for the mix i used..it was 2 parts coir to 1 part vermiculite

and about the light *slaps himself* i should  have knew that they'll just keep GROWING but not be MATURING without the light maybe soon the heads will burst open?

Do you know what strain of cubensis it is. It looks like it may be Penis Envy to me. I could be wrong though. They will mature w/ out light, but they have trouble growing upwards w/ out it. You should also only use 1/2- 1" of casing material, and if your using coir I think your supposed to use more verm than coir; like 60/40 verm /coir. Just my .o2 GL! :mushroom2: :grin:
