Mist between the fruits. The casing layer needs to stay moist.

Why is it bad to spray directly? Just wondering.

Once the mushrooms start pinning, and assuming you have brought the casing layer to a point where it is sufficiently moist, it is not necessary to continue to spray as you were before pinning, unless it's extremely dry where you are, and/or there is a lot of air circulation going on. Moist the sides of your Fruiting Chamber if it makes you feel more comfortable.

There is no point in spraying your mushrooms directly. And if things get too wet during fruiting, your mushrooms are likely to become waterlogged. They'll still work, but you don't want squishy, watery mushrooms now, do you? If you say that some of the mushrooms are about 4" tall, then you are not far from the end.

Here's an example of mushrooms that are too wet:

Read my casing strategy and find out what correct water delivery is.
Like Land_Crab showed those are saturated shrooms, the reason for that was very high humidity and a lack of fresh air exchanges. I've seen this personally with automated fruiting chambers and misting also, they'll absorb a ton of water. I've never quite had as bad a situation as L_C but close. Learning proper water delivery will keep your casings shrinkage to a minimum and supply all the moisture needed by your maturing fruitbodies. GL
