What more than any other factor, determines the size of a mushrooms growth.

The co2 level? the amount of substrate used? the amount of the casing layer??

any ideas? different trays are giving me different results using the same strain.

imo, it would be genetic make-up followed by available water then total mycellial mass.

So if you took a cap from a distorted mushroom, made a print and produced fruits, would they, as well, have the same look as the distorted one?

if you cloned it prolly... but i wouldn't think that the spores would produce this... possibly though... for i am only a "shithouse mycologist"


i still love that

all depends on why it grew distorted,
if the root cause was genetic,
any clone should display the same trait.
of course, there are other causes for distorted growth, so there's no absolute guarantee.
as for any offspring from printing,
if the cause was genetic, originally,
then a certain % of its' offspring,
prolly less than 25%,
would carry the trait, which might be expressed if dominant or reinforced by breeding.
