cakes growing everywhere and into the perlite and into other cakes

I have a light source from above but these mushies are dumb as shit. They are growing into the perlite below and pushing into other cakes.

Is there any concern? Should I just let them push into the perlite? I've tried digging a hole in the perlite so they don't touch it directly but they don't seem to care.

Any real problems? Should I just pick the half grown mushies - will they rot if they touch other mushies or if they grow into the perlite?

I now have a light on for 18 hours and have it about a meter away from them.

Turn your light on for 12 hrs. and they will do better.

No danger of them rotting.

Pick the just as they break.

mine did the same thing for my first grow..

what turned things around for me was simply using black construction paper to cover the sides of my terrarium.  this ensured that they were only exposed to light from above.. one even formed a complete circle within the stem haha..

and as was recommended above, try a 12hr on/off light cycle
