small shrooms, no weight
    #4608540 - 09/01/05 03:46 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

afoaf shrooms matured at like 2-3inches tall. an entire first flush was 1.7g dry. with hallow stems, the strain was hawaiian.

they were cased with about half verm, half coco.

subsrate deapth was like 1/2inch, with about 1.5-2inches of casing.  the broken up chunks were broken into "bit-sized" pieces. only 1 pf half pint jar for a case the is about 3inches tall and 7inches long and 3inches across.

lighting in the FC wasnt ideal, but they dont need much, it was from outside light.

i think its cause their was no light shinning from the top. only from the sides, since light was coming in through the window..

PLEASE HELP :crazy2:

You have it backwards.
Try a 3 to 4 inch deep substrate @ 20% spawn rate, & after fully colonized, a 3/4 inch of casing material.

There's no substrate to casing ratio you need to worry about. What's important is that you get a good, thick substrate depth as Agar mentioned, and top it off with a decent casing layer once colonized. I myself like to use 1/2" casing layer of 50/50 peat/verm.

Here's a sample of what 4 inches of poo can get you size wise, if everything works out:
