Why are my shrooms so small?
    #881431 - 09/13/02 03:36 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I am growing a strian of edible puerto rican mushrooms  :grin:  I used BRF/Verm and cased with straight Verm.  I fan them and water them twice daily and they seem to be growing fine. The only thing is the two biggest ones that I have are the size of.... hmmm thinking of something to compare them too... those things you screw into the wall to stop the doorknob from knocking a hole in the wall. They are about that small. Whats up with that?  :confused:

for bigger fruits and better results try using either:
A.) using more cakes in the casing.
B.) Horse poo + Straw
C.) Using Whole Grains

hope this helps.
good luck.

Fruitbody size depends upon strain, conditions of substrate, conditions of casing, among other factors. My buddy had a strain of GC that were the same size as yours, both off of casing and cakes. Just have fun with it.

Your small ones could be just as potent or more so than a huge batch of penis envy lets say...

Small is better than none. Try a different tek and strain and see what happens

i've harvested PR's with the same methods and ended up with similar results. I am now trying Scotts 3 n 1 along with colonized rye cakes. This method has seemed to work for others very well. The problem with the straight verm layer, is there are no nutrients or helpful bacteria available.
