What strain? Humidity? FAE? And your shrooms will/should get bigger at the second flush.

Like fungusman said, you need to make sure that you are fanning them alot and make sure the humidity is as close to 100% as possible. If you dunked and rolled, you should have definitely had bigger mushrooms than that.

Its in a poor mans pod, FAE every 4 hours or so, and the strain is mexican/cambodian cross, aparently.
My hydrometer only reads up to 90%, but im guessing it is arround 95 to 100 caus theres plenty of condensation and what not.

Spawn those PF cakes to pasteurized horse poo (found at horse farms, stables, tracks, whereever, or TN Stud if you can't find it locally) and you get bigger shrooms.



More potent too.

Cakes = minimal nutrition base = small mushrooms. Step it up to large grain based casings, or better yet spawn to poo.

Wow, amasing what poo can do. I plan to use WBS next, simply because I have some already. Going to do that as soon as I can get my hands on a PC. How is WBS compared to shit? thanks guys

Grain can give fairly good results as well.
