Raise the Cake.  :wink:

And for future reference... you have too much light. The mushrooms are growing toward the reflected light of the perlite. A few minutes a day of light is all that is needed, or a very dim light.

They dont need to be big for a print. Little mushrooms make fine prints.

Or foil or shot glass. One little 1 inch print is plenty for a syringe or two..

Even if they end up just being practice prints. Its good to get into the habit of doing lots of printing...just about everything you got, any time you have time. At the very least FSR's could use your contributions..I wish I started practiing printing alot more alot sooner..

I wouldn't do anything about the mycellium extending onto the perlite, it will provide a lot of extra water for the shrooms. There is a tek somewhere on here that shows how to do sort of the same thing with peat moss, where myc from the cake extends onto the moist peat thus providing the cake with much more water and growing much bigger shroomies.

Yeah the myc in the perlite isn't an issue...that mushroom growing down into it is. I don't want it to contam/rot. I raised the cake.
