Hi , I recently started a mini mono tub , 6qt, I had more substrate and spawn mixture then I intended and I just dumped all my extra sub into one tub , now the mushrooms have completely filled the tub and have hit the top and began to bend over and are showing no signs of opening up anytime soon
This is the second flush, the first flush did the same thing but I picked them prematurely because I didnt know what else to do, now the second flush is even bigger,as expected
My question:could I just remove the top tub so the mush could reach their full potential as long as I dont let them get too dry?
I dont know how to post pics yet or I would
Thank you

Leave the top on. The fruits will stack up against the lid. 

 

Don't try to remove the top. 

Complications will result. 

If it ain't broke - don't fix it. 

 

I'll move this out to Magic for more views and commentary. ;)

Nah you should be good. 

 

Think of an invitro grow where all those boomers are squished in there. Aside from being ugly and maybe a tough time getting a good print, nothing negative at all.

 

Those pics are beautiful!!

What's funny is it kind of started in vitro
I had 7 colonized wbs qts , wanted to experiment, so I took gallon ziplock bags and put a tyvlek patch in them but I under calculated the amount of sub I'd have and I ended up filling the last 4 bags half full
I sent them on spawn run and 12 days later I had these half gallon bricks already covered in pins ,but they were pressed against the sides ,bruised, and they were blobs that looked like the caps were growing directly out of the mycelium and the stems were growing from them
So I picked them clean, crumbled the bricks up- not expecting it to work- put them in mini moons, (6 qt tub on bottom,6qt on top) 10 days later I picked them
Now I'm on my second flush, think I'm gonna let them go until they open all the way

It wasnt an issue , I was a little worried that a small space would stunt the growth, also didnt like the caps constantly touching the wet top keeping them wet all the time

What kind of holes are in your tubs? May just be genetic, but small caps, long stems, really fuzzy feet would indicate they should benefit from more FAE.

I got 2 holes up high on both ends ,and 2 on each end at substrate level... 8 total, they're just b+ that I started from an lc
B+ are long and lanky tho
I pulled the poly from on top hole and one bottom because they were a little fuzzy and dont get me wrong I'm glad they're that big I just wondered rubbing the top tub like that

They could possibly get a lil brused from the extra water condensation on the lid touching the caps/stems, But that is some what just a visual effect since they wont be around long enough

This is my second flush , I let them go until they shot their spores so not really expecting much of a third flush , but I taped it up anyway
