Small Mazatapec shrooms?
    #592469 - 03/29/02 01:08 AM (21 years, 8 months ago)

I planted a pint of Mazatapec mycelium on rye about 3 weeks ago and I cased them with some worm castings and I am about to harvest the first flush of these babies. There is only one problem, the tallest of my little mushies is only about 2 1/5 of an inch tall. IT is fruiting very well with over 70 countable (estimate) mushrooms on the little 6X6in (aprox) container and several other pins still forming.

here is an earlier thread that I made of just the mycelium taking over the top of the castings.

I used a little plastic sandwich sized container, could the size of the container be the problem? or that I just used like 90% rye (lack of nutrients)? I have never grown this species before so I dont know if this the normal size. I dont have access to my digital camera so I cant show you some pictures but the mushies are small. The biggest cap is about 1 1/2 cm wide and the veil has already broken on it. any ideas guys? I will post pictures as soon as I can.

My experiene has been that the thicker and larger the casing the bigger the cubies. Example. I after giving away many colonized jars I had one left. I didn't want to grow it in cake form so I made a small casing. The casing was about 1/4-1/2" thick. This produced cubies no taller then 3 inches and no wider then 1 cm. Now with my standard casings, 3 1/2 pint jars spread out atleast 1 inch thick, I receive much larger and thicker shrooms. A bonsai tree only grows as big as the roots will let it. Small pot=small root system=small tree. Small casing=small mycelium network=small cubies. Just some thoughts bro. L8rs.

Try a thicker substrate layer next time. 6 X 6 is too big for one pint.
