Gangly growth in Myco-bags
    #535159 - 01/29/02 07:06 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)


I've been hearing complaints that shrooms grown in the myco-bags only grow out from the side of the substrate, and not from the top....If one was to place foil or something around the side of the bag (so light couldn't reach the sides of the bag), wouldn't that cause the mushrooms to only grow off the top of the substrate? Then again, doing this might decrease yield size. Has anyone done any testing with this yet? Thanks!

Maybe, but, you might be restricting the main source of the mushrooms.

A mushrooms a mushroom -- who cares where it grows from.

That is just the nature of growing in a myco-bag. Its not an ideal environment, it is just the easiest and most foolproof method to date.

You won't get more yield by forcing them to grow on the top middle if that is even possible. The mushrooms seem to prefer to form near the top edge between the plastic and the substrate. They don't seem to have any problem forcing their way the short distance to the surface as they grow. Pins don't seem to form on the lower sides or bottom as long as there is no space between the substrate and the plastic of the bag. So avoid pulling the plastic away from the substrate after fully colonized.
